An Interview with Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch

Thousand Foot KructhThousand Foot Krutch have been around in some shape or form since the Mid-90s and come with a full arsenal of catchy and powerful pop-laden crunch fit for everyone. The band just released their second full-on live album entitled, Untraveled Roads, this month. The band are road dogs, touring incessantly, playing in front of huge crowds of adoring fans. This past summer they took their first ‘break’ from the road during their 20+ year career as musicians. Lead singer, Trevor McNevan, was nice enough to take a few minutes to speak with us about the new live record, and the inspiration, love, and joy the band receives from their fans that fuel their work.
