Christian rock band Thousand Foot Krutch, on Tooth & Nail Records, has been rocking out for their fans for the last 15 years, and on Oct. 11 will re-release an exclusive just-for-fan edition of their 2009 album, Welcome to the Masquerade, featuring three new songs and special photos.
Two years later, Welcome to the Masquerade remains one of their most commercially successful albums to date producing three No. 1 Christian rock singles "Fire it Up," "Bring Me to Life," and "E for Extinction."
In addition to this they also had three top 10 Christian Hard Rock single for "Forward Motion," "Already Home," and "Look Away," and one top 15 active rock single "Fire it Up."
The album was a crossover success in the secular market with songs appearing in the movie "GI Joe" and sporting events like the Superbowl 2010 and ESPN's NCAA 2011.
Critics proclaimed the album as "their best" and the "best album of the genre to be released."
TFK spent the entire summer touring on various festivals and recently joined a Canadian tour with the Newsboys, Manafest, and Manic Drive on the Maple Noise Tour.
Thousand Foot Krutch recently posted this on their Twitter, "OfficialTFK Update on the new album: Trev is about to hit up the studio to record vocals for the new album!"
In between touring, the band is working on a new studio album and will be touring in Germany and Switzerland as well as playing Acquire the Fire.
After signing with Tooth & Nail in 2000, TFK released their first album with the label called Set it Off, and was primarily a nu metal rock/rap band, which was what was popular at that time with the success of Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit.
Over the years TFK has refined their sound as to more heavy rock or mainstream rock style with no rapping.
The band has sold over 800,000 albums
The band has been nominated for 10 GMA Canada Awards winning seven of them along with two nominations at the GMA's and four nominations at The Juno Awards.
