Debut Single “Running With Giants” Becomes Band’s Fastest USA Chart-Climber Ever
First TFK Music Video In Three Years Premieres On Loudwire
Nearly two years after Thousand Foot Krutch landed their second consecutive USA Hard Rock No. 1 and Billboard Top 10 album with OXYGEN: INHALE, the adrenaline-doused rockers are back to the aggressive side of the dial with EXHALE, which is set to be released independently worldwide on the 17th June on TFK Music / Get A Grip Records. The upcoming album is filled with arena-shaking anthems and some of the boldest lyrics in the group’s history, and will be available to preorder today (April 29) from http://tfkmusic.co/exhale
“I had gotten the idea a few years back of having an album called ‘Inhale’ showcasing the lighter, quieter side of the band that’s always been a part of our albums, allowing us the freedom to dig deeper into that than we have before. And then to have an album called EXHALE that drops the gloves and dives even deeper into the aggressive side of the band. We didn’t get soft on the last one! I promise!” laughs TFK front man Trevor McNevan. “It was always meant to be a two-part story.”
The unapologetic, gate-charging lead single from the new album, “Running With Giants,” which is available at iTunes now, captures the energy of EXHALE along with an assertive message for underdogs.
“In life, everyone wants to put you in a box, and label you, but your value or success doesn’t depend on what others think of you,” says McNevan. “Follow your own convictions, dreams and inspirations, and don’t be afraid to step over your fears. The faith steps in our lives define our journeys, and that’s what this song is about.”
“Running With Giants” follows two consecutive Top 20 Active Rock hits (“Untraveled Road,” “Born This Way”) from OXYGEN:INHALE and has already become an international hit as the fastest chart-climbing song in TFK’s history.
