Thousand Foot Krutch singer on new album: ‘This record has a very militant theme to it’

Christian hard rock gents Thousand Foot Krutch release their seventh studio album, “The End Is Where We Begin,” on April 17, and this time, the guys are going DIY. Now without a proper label, lead singer and songwriter Trevor McNevan and the band are releasing the album independently. The new collection marks a return to Krutch’s roots, packing the rap-rock of Beastie Boys, rhythms of Red Hot Chili Peppers and hard rock of Skillet.

“Without trying, this record has a very militant theme to it, with songs like ‘War Of Change’ and ‘Courtesy Call’ painting more of a visual for that,” McNevan said in an official statement. “There’s an urgency to it and I think the timing feels right. This record’s heart can be summed up by ‘Be The Change,’ the album’s lyric and phrase seen throughout the album artwork.”

The album’s first single, “Let The Sparks Fly,” is already at rock radio’s doorsteps, and another track off the album, “Light Up the Sky,” has been picked up by ESPN for NASCAR and NCAA Sports shows. Both tracks, the band says, serve as the “ultimate tone setters” for “The End is Where We Begin” and mix a variety of genres and styles.

Another song off the album, “Be Somebody,” is going for airplay on Top 40 radio stations. McNevan says that song is very close to the hearts of band members. “This one still gives me chills,” McNevan said of “Be Somebody.” “I had been trying to hone in on what this record should sound like, what it should feel like…This song is as honest as it gets.” Stay up-to-date on new album details and other band news on the Thousand Foot Krutch’s official website.
