TFK Hits No. 1 At Radio For First Time As Indie Band,
Gathers 13th No. 1 with “War Of Change”
Modern rock favorites THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH will release its first remix EP, Metamorphosiz: The End Remixes, Vol. 1, as an exlusive to digital retailers, including iTunes®, Amazon.com and others, on Dec. 4. The EP features 5 songs from the independently released, 5-star acclaimed and No. 1 selling Billboard Hard Rock album, The End Is Where We Begin, by noted remix geniuses Steve Sidelnyk, Rob Persaud, Robbie Bronnimann, Andy Hunter and Solomon Olds.
THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH decided to offer the remix EP following the response the band received from two remix songs delivered to its fans for free via noisetrade.com last month and commemorating the success of The End Is Where We Begin, which hit No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200, their highest charting album to date.
“You spoke, we listened. Because your response to the two free remixes was incredible, we’ve decided to make Metamorphosiz: The End Remixes, Vol. 1!" exclaims TFK front man Trevor McNevan.
Featured on the remix EP is one of the tracks offered in appreciation of its fans, Solomon Olds’ (Family Force 5, Newsboys) take on the adrenaline-infused “Light Up The Sky.” Also featured is the current hit radio single, “War Of Change,” remixed by Andy Hunter (The Matrix: Reloaded, The Italian Job, ABC’s Alias), who further offers a ‘tripped out’ version of “I Get Wicked” for the EP. Robbie Bronnimann (Nicki Minaj, Chicane) remixes the Active Rock hit single “Let The Sparks Fly,” while Steve Sidelnyk (Madonna, No Doubt, Moby) and Rob Persaud (The Bourne Legacy, Snow White and the Huntsman, The Green Hornet) round out the 5-song EP with “We Are (Karmageddon Remix).”
The album tracks of one or more of these songs have been featured in a string of sports entertainment song placements, including ESPN (NASCAR, NCAA basketball), EA Sports NHL 2013 video game, WWE (“Over The Limit” pay per view event), L.A. Kings' (NHL) playoff reel (http://ht.ly/aFciK) and as the NFL Tennessee Titans’ 2012-13“kickoff” song.

As the band prepares to releases the remix EP, and as The End Is Where We Begin sales continue double-digit percentage growth over the band’s previous best-selling album, Welcome to the Masquerade, TFK’s second Active Rock single from the new album, “War Of Change,” gathers momentum. The song not only hit No. 1 on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s Octane Big-Uns Countdown, but is also gathering airplay across the country at Active Rock and Alternative Rock stations like WBUZ-FM “The Buzz” (Nashville), WRBR-FM (South Bend, IN), KAZR-FM (Des Moines), WCPR- FM (Biloxi, MS) and KCXX-FM (Riverside, CA), the latter station playing TFK music for the very first time.
“War Of Change” has further become one of TFK’s fastest rising songs on Christian radio, going all the way to No. 1 at Rock radio. The song marks the band’s first No. 1 on Billboard’s radio charts as an independent band, and TFK’s 13th No. 1 song overall at Christian radio. As “War Of Change” continues to impact radio, TFK’s CHR single, “So Far Gone,” is gathering airplay now across the country.
Featured last summer on the Third Annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival and having receiving over 1,700, 5-star average customer reviews on iTunes® alone for The End Is Where We Begin, THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH has found that sometimes the best way to move forward is to go back to the basics, taking all of the raw energy and emotion of the past and channeling it into the present. For those who’ve been following the Ontario, Canada-bred players since their formation in 1997, it’s been a continuously escalating highlight reel that includes best-selling albums, top Active Rock hits (including “Fire It Up,” “Move” and “Let The Sparks Fly”), plus a slew of soundtrack slots. In fact, the group has literally infiltrated every facet of pop culture, from ongoing ESPN appearances, to various NASCAR, MLB, NHL, NCAA and NFL airings (including the 2010 Super Bowl), along with the “GI Joe” movie trailer, WGN-TV’s “Smallville” and EA Sports’ NHL 2010 and 2013 video games.
