That's right, Thousand Foot Krutch is on the attack. Wrecking havoc at the Rocket Bar in Toledo on March 1st, the Canadian entity will surely have people screaming. Heads will be banging.
Bodies will slam into each other. There could be blood. You never know with a mosh pit.
Will their be crowd surfing? Stage diving? You'll have to check it out for yourself.
One thing is for sure, the Rocket Bar will be rockin'. You will want to be knocking to get in on the action. Of course, tickets are on pre-sale, so be sure to check out the head knockin' good time.
The Ontario boys will be joined by a familiar face on stage. Former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” will be bashing the beats with TFK on the War of Change Tour. This will surely kick things into high gear.
The band came through Detroit this summer. Marching in with a few other bands on the Uproar Tour in September, the crowd exploded when TFK took the stage. Expect this to happen again on Friday.
With six albums under their belt, the band is more than experienced at rocking an audience. Their latest album, The End Is Where We Begin, offers a slew of familiar radio hits. Other albums include Welcome To The Masquerade, The Flame in All of Us, The Art of Breaking, Phenomenon, Set It Off, That's What People Do, and Shutterbug; any of them are well worth a listen, as it is interesting to note how the style of the band has changed throughout the years in their music, with earlier albums having more of a hip hop influence, and the later albums leaning more towards hard rock, a slow evolution.
Though their music is certainly made to knock around to, with beats that are known to cause an eruption of the mosh pit, but the message behind the music is nothing to be scared of for little ones. The band is actually a Christian band, though few would ever guess by hearing it on the radio. They blend in like sheep amongst the wolves, but it is a refreshing change to some of the negative messages.
Crank up the volume. TFK hits hard. Release some anger by dancing or moshing.
There's a reason they won Artist of the Year, Modern Rock Album of the Year, Video of the Year, Hard Music Song of the Year, and more. They've been banking awards for years. Musically, they're great.
In 2008, they won the Taco Bell “Feed the Beat” competition with Fireflight and Hit The Lights. Playing the Winter X Games in Aspen was surely cool, in more ways than one. Combining ESPN with Taco Bell and TFK's music was a winning combination, and a great way to rock in the X Games.
Not only is the band musically talented, but they have high energy and put on a show worth seeing. If you cannot make the Toledo show on March 1st, check them out at the Machine Shop in Flint, MI, on March 2. For more information on the band, visit www.thousandfootkrutch.com.
