Thousand Foot Krutch is a Canadian Christian hard rock band who formed in 1997.
They have released a number of albums, (including 2 remix albums)the latest being Exhale, sequel to Oxygen: Inhale.
While TFK had rap influences, obvious with Trevors vocals in earlier TFK albums, "The Flame In All Of Us" and "Welcome To the Masquerade" have moved away from that, and used a more rock based sound. But "The End Is Where We Begin" returns to the band's Rap roots.
While "The Last Song" from "The Flame In All Of Us", has been thought by some to be an outro from the band, TFK still continues touring, and Trevor has said that they were very tired and it's only a sarcastic "Here it all is: love it or hate it".
Touring[change | change source]
The band is known for a lot of touring. They usually do 200 concerts in a year.
About the band[change | change source]
The name Thousand Foot Krutch came from the belief that God is a crutch you can lean on, even if your problems pile a thousand feet high. What they mean is, you can ask God for help even if you have very serious or many problems in your life.
