Modern rock favorite THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH will release its second remix EP, Metamorphosiz II The End Remixes Vol. 2. The EP features six songs from the independently released, five-star acclaimed and No. 1 selling Billboard Hard Rock album, The End Is Where We Begin, by noted remix talent Robbie Bronnimann, Andy Hunter, Solomon Olds, Rui Da Silva and Joshua Silverberg.
The new EP follows the success of Metamorphosiz: The End Remixes, Vol. 1, which released Dec. 4, 2012 and sparked ESPN2 to load up “War Of Change,” “We Are” and “Let the Sparks Fly” remix tracks for placements on its show “First Take.” New ESPN placements for “Vol. 2” are being considered now, including for NASCAR coverage.
Bronnimann (Nicki Minaj, Chicane), Hunter (The Matrix: Reloaded, The Italian Job, ABC’s Alias) and Olds (Family Force 5, Newsboys), all featured on the first EP, return with brand new remixes. Bronnimann tackles SiriusXM’s Octane Big ’Uns Countdown Top 10 single “Fly On The Wall” and hit radio single “Be Somebody. ” Hunter and Olds ‘trip out’ “Down” and “The End Is Where We Begin,” respectfully. New to the mix are Portuguese musical innovator Silva (“Touch Me”) who takes on the militant “Courtesy Call,” and producer/songwriter Silverberg (Edison Glass, Abandon) with an unsullied take on “So Far Gone.”

As the band prepares to releases the new remix EP, TFK is also hitting the festival circuit this summer following its “War Of Change” winter/spring tour that was named one of Pollstar’s Top 50 tours this year. While on tour, the band is performing fan favorites and hits from The End Is Where We Begin, including the top 40 Active Rock tracks “Let The Sparks Fly” and “War of Change.” The latter song not only hit No. 1 on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s Octane Big ‘Uns Countdown and is the No. 1 most-played this week on KADR FM (Des Moines), but also has become the band’s first-ever independent music video. The video has recently been picked up by ClubCom Hard Rock (500 health clubs in the U.S., as well as locations in England, Australia and Japan), Promo Only Video Pool Express Video (Walt Disney World, MTV, Harrah's Casinos, Hard Rock Cafes, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Universal Studios, more), California Music Channel, TVU’s The Most Wanted, JCTV, Video Hits and many more. “War of Change” further became TFK’s 13th No. 1 song overall at Christian radio.
TFK’s current single, “So Far Gone,” busted into the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot AC Christian chart for the first time April 15 at No. 9 and remains a Top 10 hit today, a full 8 weeks later.
“This is a very intimate song. It’s a love song, and my way of saying, ‘I can’t get enough of you,’” says TFK frontman Trevor McNevan. “It’s a worship song to me. There’s not a day in my life when I don’t need God more and want to get closer.”
TFK 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 (“War Of Change,” “Let The Sparks Fly,” “Fire It Up” and “Move”), tours like last summer’s Third Annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival, 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, WWE, NCAA and NFL airings (including the 2010 Super Bowl and Tennessee Titans’ 2012-13“kickoff” song), along with the “GI Joe” movie trailer, WGN-TV’s “Smallville” and EA Sports’ NHL 2010 and 2013 video games.
