The Art of Breaking

A new sound, with powerful lyrics and memorable choruses, for Thousand Foot Krutch.

Talk to any fan of rock music and chances are they've heard about Thousand Foot Krutch. The band that calls southern Ontario home, has seen vast success over the course of their career. This latest release is a solid follow-up to the highly-acclaimed album Phenomenon.

The Art of Breaking opens with "Absolute," which sets a tone both musically and lyrically for the rest of the album. The lyrics shout out, "We want the truth/give us the absolute/We need Your help/Cause we've got nothing left to lose" and this search for truth extends to encompass the entire album.

Producer Arnold Lanni (Our Lady Peace, Simple Plan) seems to have brought a clear and distinct sound, and a shift in style. Gone is the rapping and screaming found on previous albums. This album is less hip-hop (or "rapcore/alternative") and more pure rock, with occasional forays into slower-paced melody ("Breathe You In" and the piano-driven chorus of "Hurt").

With such an appealing sound backed by powerful lyrics and memorable choruses, it's no wonder the band is attracting a lot of mainstream attention. At press time the first single "Move" was climbing up the Active Rock Charts while "Absolute" was seeing similar success on the Christian Rock charts.

Fans should have little trouble adjusting to the new sound, and it will also catch the attention of new audiences.
