Sometimes the best way to move forward is to go back to the basics, taking all of the raw energy and emotion of the past and channeling it into the present. This is exactly what Thousand Foot Krutch is doing on the aptly titled The End Is Where We Begin, finds Canada's favorite modern rockers voluntarily walking away from record label life altogether (even after a slew of profitable offers came along) to reignite the passionate DIY work ethos that first emerged over a decade ago.
For those who've been following the Ontario-bred players since their formation in 1997, it's been a continuously escalating highlight reel that includes best-selling albums, four top 25 Active Rock hits (including the top 20 smash hits "Fire It Up" and "Move"), plus a slew of soundtrack slots. That trend is continuing with the new project, which even prior to hitting street, found the lead single "Let The Sparks Fly" (Active Rock) and fellow adrenaline-infused rocker "Light Up the Sky" picked up by ESPN for NASCAR and NCAA Sports programming. Both tracks also serve as the ultimate tone setters for the sonic explosions contained within The End Is Where We Begin, which could be considered the ultimate Thousand Foot Krutch mix-tape showcasing a myriad of full-throttled personalities.
"Be Somebody", the first song written for the new album, has also gone to radio and the track that has already been named a Billboard's Most Added song at CHR for multiple weeks.
The winners of seven GMA Canada Covenant Awards, along with nominations for Dove and Juno Awards, Thousand Foot Krutch has sold over half a million CDs since debut in 1998.
The End Is Where We Begin is produced by Aaron Sprinkle And Trevor McNevan.
Band will appear at YC Edmonton in May.
