Thousand Foot Krutch was started by frontman/songwriter and Christian music artist Trevor McNevan back in high school. Thousand Foot Krutch first found an audience with the hip-hop centric debut, Set It Off, and then deftly edged into full-blown rock territory with Phenomenon and The Art of Breaking.
Thousand Foot Krutch's musical style is generally considered to be hard rock, alternative rock/pop, and sometimes heavy metal; because of the band's Christianity-based lyrics, Thousand Foot Krutch is considered a Christian rock band. Thousand Foot Krutch also features McNevan’s childhood friend Joel Bruyere on bass guitar and drummer Steve Augustine; all three originally hail from Ontario, Canada.
Over the years, Thousand Foot Krutch's artistry has broadened and matured and they have found an uncompromising place in the Top 40. In just a few years, Thousand Foot Krutch has sold half a million records, shared stages with a wide mix of headliners (Switchfoot, Korn, The Roots), and landed adrenaline-rush songs like “Rawkfist” and “Move” on nationally televised sporting events—all of this achieved relatively under the radar.
The September 2007 release of The Flame in All of Us was a noticeable turning point for Thousand Foot Krutch, when the youthful hip-hop and alternative rock sensibilities uniquely coalesced into a more universal, sometimes pop-shaped framework to create a deeper, fuller experience for artist and listener alike.
“The common thread really interests me,” Trevor says. “No matter what you believe or how you were raised, you have the same core group of burning questions as the next person: Who am I? Why am I here? What is life really all about?”
As their fans know, the members of Thousand Foot Krutch address such matters from a spiritual perspective, singing to and about God in a way that doesn’t intimidate anyone who might not think exactly like them.
Thousand Foot Krutch has finished recording their new album titled Welcome to the Masquerade, which is expected to be released in the fall of 2009.
