Seattle, WA...July 28, 2009...With a little over a month until fans will get their hands on the fifth studio album
Welcome to the Masquerade from rockers Thousand Foot Krutch,
a new single from the forthcoming project is made available today on iTunes. The single "Fire It Up" is the second single fans
have heard from the new CD as the first single, "Bring Me to Life," was a free download with the Taco Bell "Feed The Beat"
program earlier this Spring.
"Fire It Up" is a high-energy, crunchy riff-filled, rock song that is being featured in a major movie trailer for "G.I. Joe",
two upcoming video games (MX vs. ATV Reflex and upcoming EA Sports NHL 10 (game releases September 15th, soundtrack July 31st)),
used on ESPN's airing of the NASCAR Nationwide series feature on Kyle Busch and on the Versus Network during the Edmonton
IndyCar race this past weekend.
Terry Lingner, IndyCar on Versus Producer had this to say, "IndyCar Racing is all about power and sound and we are flat to the
floor with Thousand Foot Krutch's material. Talk about a great mix. TFK in your face and the power appeal of land rockets!"
