|THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH CLOSES SPRING WITH KNOCK OUT TOUR
09 June 2008
As the summer approaches, Tooth&Nails' Thousand Foot Krutch reflects on their 2007-2008 touring season and looks ahead to performances at the major festivals and forthcoming fall tour.
In the past year, TFK has been part of two of the most successful tours in the market with the TobyMac Portable Sounds spring and fall tours and the most recent hit Comatose Tour with rockers Skillet and special guests Decyfer Down. The Comatose Tour, which featured three rock acts that fans can't get enough of these days, sold out in more than half of the 25+ markets including such major cities as New York City, Minneapolis, Lancaster, Dayton and Mobile.
"Having TFK on the tour was a blast," states John Cooper lead singer of Skillet. "They brought an incredible show each night, and they also lit a fire under me to make sure we were doing our job so they wouldn't steal the show every night!"
"Thousand Foot Krutch was the band that sealed the deal when it came to booking our recent May 11th Comatose tour concert," shares Chris Strayer of CMI Productions.
Looking ahead, TFK will be a part of all major festivals including the commemorative 30th Anniversary of Creation East (June 25-28th). Closing their 2008, the band will be a part of the first-ever Creation Feastival: the Tour beginning in the early fall (dates TBA).
Strayer continues, "We have done many shows with these guys and have always been impressed with the energy and ministry they bring to the stage. They are an integral part of this falls Creation Festival: The Tour."
This spring success followed the release of the band's latest studio project "The Flame In All of Us," which garnered such praise as "shows the passion and heart," "best album to date," and "bright new chapter for Thousand Foot Krutch." Fans voted the band's project as the "Best Album of the Year" in the Golden Ear Awards in Ignite Your Faith (April 2008). In addition, Thousand Foot Krutch's Active Rock/Alternative single "Falls Apart" debuted in the Top 40. The single climbed into the Top 30 marking the band's third Active Rock/Alternative single to break into the Top 30 on the charts following the hit songs "Rawkfist" and "Move."
