Thousand Foot Krutch is readying its highly anticipated June 17 release, Exhale, and the band is giving fans a taste of what's to come with the release of the new music video for the album's first single, "Running With Giants." (Get it on iTunes here.)
“This song charges the gates with no apologies, and comes out swingin'. It's the perfect example of what Exhale was always intended to be, the heavier, more aggressive side to Inhale (our last album). The albums were always meant to be a two-part story,” said TFK songwriter, lead vocalist and guitarist, Trevor McNevan. “If there was a song that best encompasses the ‘release the dogs’ symbolism of the new album’s title, it would be this one.
“In life, everyone wants to put you in a box, and label you. This song's saying forget about what others think; they don't know what's best for you,” continued McNevan. “Follow your own convictions, dreams and inspirations. Your value or success doesn't depend on what others think of you. You're worth more than that.”
In other Exhale news, TFK also launched another single from the album, “Incomplete,” to the top 10 of the iTunes Rock Top Songs chart last week amidst 5-star acclaim and a YouTube lyric video that has been viewed more than 170,000 times. The band further gifted the song “Born Again” to its fans. Downloaded tens of thousands of times and with more than 177,000 YouTube views so far, sources say this song may find its way onto Exhale as a bonus track.
