Thousand Foot Krutch
About Thousand Foot Krutch
Starting out as a Christian nu-metal band in the mid-’90s, Canadian outfit Thousand Foot Krutch has delivered a string of hits while moving toward a more refined hard rock sound.
∙ The band, founded by vocalist Trevor McNevan, built a following by touring constantly on the back of independently released albums That’s What People Do (1997) and Set It Off (2000).
∙ The 2003 album Phenomenon—their debut for Christian indie label Tooth & Nail—earned Thousand Foot Krutch their first Dove and Juno Award nominations.
∙ The group broke through with 2005’s The Art of Breaking, the first of six straight studio LPs that hit either No. 1 or No. 2 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.
∙ They enlisted Ken Andrews (Pete Yorn, Tenacious D, Jimmy Eat World) to produce their 2007 album, The Flame In All of Us.
∙ Gradually climbing the Billboard 200, they reached No. 14 with 2012’s The End Is Where We Begin, and followed it with 2014’s Oxygen: Inhale, which peaked at No. 11.
∙ McNevan—who’d started FM Static as a pop-punk side band with Thousand Foot Krutch drummer Steve Augustine over a decade earlier—launched new hip-hop project I AM THE STORM in 2018.
