Thousand Foot Krutch | GigSalad Greenroom Interviews

By Destin Harrison

The life of a rockstar generally requires three main staples:

  1. Sex
  2. Drugs
  3. Rock & Roll

For Thousand Foot Krutch, however, the list looks a little different. After getting to know their frontman Trevor McNevan, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that, if Thousand Foot Krutch chose their own trifecta it would look a little more like this:

  1. Jesus
  2. Hockey
  3. Rock & Roll
Thousand Foot Krutch

Canadian rock band, Thousand Foot Krutch

Their most recent release is the conclusion of a two-part project called “Oxygen.” The first half, “Inhale,” showcases a softer, more stripped-down side of the band’s abilities… at least, compared to the rest of their material. Half of the songs on “Inhale” still made me want to become a UFC fighter. The second half of the “Oxygen” project is called “Exhale” and it features an explosion of distorted guitar riffs and rap-rock sensibilities, as evidenced by their single, “Running With Giants.”

Throughout our interview, Trevor and I had the chance to discuss the meaning of the band’s name, their ongoing battle against stereotypes, and a real life miracle that saved both Trevor’s health and a tour the band was planning.
