"We're so excited to bring the ‘Welcome To The Masquerade’ tour to you this fall! We really wanted to do a full-blown rock tour - that's just pedal to the metal, and that's exactly what we plan to do,” shares TFK frontman Trevor McNevan. “Along with good friends Disciple and Ivoryline, we've also teamed up with Creation Festival: The Tour, who've come along side us to bring you the very best tour we could. We've had a long standing relationship with the Festivals and the Tour, and it's humbling and inspiring to see how much they've accomplished over the years, with so many lives God's changed through their work. As a band, we've also teamed up with Compassion International to spread the message of hope in sponsoring children all over the world. There will be something for everyone. Bring your ear plugs, things are about to get loud."
"Thousand Foot Krutch have proven themselves time and time again as one of the top acts,” states Nick Kulb, Creation Festival: The Tour producer. “They have built a passionate fan-base and have grown into a natural headliner. Their passion, energy, and testimony are what Creation strives to work with. We're looking forward to teaming up again for this amazing tour."
This tour announcement follows a huge summer of festival touring for TFK including Creation Northeast and Northwest, Lifest, Sonshine, Ichthus, Unity Festival, Purple Door, Heaven Fest, Fish Fest and YC Edmonton. Not to mention, TFK’s upcoming appearances rounding out the summer at Rock the Light, Disney’s Night of Joy, Awakening Festival, Freedom Festival and FallQuest.
The past year has been a whirlwind for TFK since the release of their fifth studio album, “Welcome to the Masquerade,” which has produced two No. 1 Christian Rock singles (“Fire It Up,” “Bring Me To Life”), two top 10 Christian CHR singles (“Forward Motion, “Already Home”), one top 15 Active Rock single (“Fire it Up”), as well as numerous TV, film (GI Joe), gaming and sport arena placements including being featured at the Super Bowl in February.

The sound must have been a maddening echo that haunted him at first, tormented by the rooster’s crow that mocked his empty proclamation of loyalty. For three days, his faith lay in the grave with the Savior’s body, darkened by the memory of his public desertion.
