The Almost – Show, New Album Soon, and Interview!


the_almostThe Almost rolled into Minneapolis for a show at First Avenue on October 14th.  I was lucky to get a chance to talk to the chill crew before they played for fans, who are highly anticipating the upcoming release of The Almost’s second album, “Monster, Monster.”  It was fun to see the personalities behind the talented band and hear more about their excitement for “Monster, Monster.”  I also got to hear how they feel about being an example of Christ as musicians.

TFK’s ‘Flame’ Burns A Little Brighter


Thousand Foot KrutchTooth & Nail darlings Thousand Foot Krutch have constructed quite a little niche for themselves over the years as one of the most commercially successful rock bands to crossover from the Christian market into the mainstream rock world.  Although TFK broke out first with the 100K+ sales of their 2003 disc Phenomenon, their blossoming success really became evident after the release of the band’s 2005 effort, The Art of Breaking, which spawned a top 20 rock track in “Move”.  After touring extensively behind the album, Thousand Foot Krutch returned to the studio with notable producer Ken Andrews, which resulted in this, their latest offering, The Flame in All of Us (09.18.07).  Watch for their single “What Do We Know?” on modern and mainstream rock outlets, as well as Christian Rock radio.

These Canadian boys have arguably made the most complete album of their careers in TFIAOU, a potpourri of styles from the past and present that showcase the maturity and well-roundedness of the band.  Without question, the album is a smooth listen and features tracks that will make you get up and “shake it”, sit back and reflect, or just straight-up sing along.  Whatever the case, the biggest thing detracting from the album is its similarities to other bands of the same ilk, as there is not one track on here that can really define TFK as a staple band in the world of modern rock.  Nevertheless, the band has constructed a solid album in The Flame in All of Us, and all the disc needs is a firm push in the right direction and a more identifiable persona to make Thousand Foot Krutch a household name.
