Thousand Foot Krutch
For those who've been following these Ontario-bred players since their formation in 1998, it's been a continuously escalating highlight reel that includes best-selling albums, four top 25 Active Rock hits (including the top 20 smash "Fire It Up"), plus a slew of soundtrack slots.
That trend is continuing at breakneck speed with the new CD,The End is Where We Beginwhere the band goes back to the basics, taking all of the raw energy and emotion of the past and channeling it into the present.
"This record in a lot of ways, is a bridge going back to where we came from, traveling all the way through where we've been, to where we're going," lead vocalist Trevor McNevan said.
The lyrical make-up ofThe End Is Where We Beginis urgent and insistent, while continuing in the group's positive and proactive tradition. Hardly a moment goes by on the album where listeners aren't being motivated towards a call to action, much like how the band literally risked its whole career to put its unadulterated artistic vision on display.
"We've always felt we've made music for everyone, whether that be rock or whatever style we happen to be recording at the time," said the band's drummer, Steve Augustine. "We try to make good music anyone would enjoy, but with a positive message that talks about what we believe and what comes from the heart."
