Seattle, WA...September 8, 2009...Today is the day that Thousand Foot Krutch invites fans to their masquerade ball with the fifth studio release on Tooth & Nail Records, "Welcome To The Masquerade." As the reviews roll in on what some media have labeled their "masterpiece," one of the "best albums of the year," and "highly recommended," TFK is ready to rawk fans with the new album and on the upcoming Creation Festival: The Tour. The fans also appear to be ready for the ball, as the album has already moved to #5 on the overall top albums on iTunes.

In honor of their release day, frontman Trevor McNeven will be hosting a session of TFKTV live at 5 PM Central on He'll take video questions from fans and talk about the album and upcoming news with the band while in his home writing room.

TFK takes a hard rock hammer to this universal matter of hidden emotions- confronting what lies beneath us and, in turn, burning off some major tension on "Welcome to the Masquerade," and here are what the media are saying about this hit album:

"'Welcome to the Masquerade' is like a greatest hits album for Thousand Foot Krutch, every song on the album IS a hit!"

"'Welcome to the Masquerade' is probably the best album of its genre to have been released in the last few years."

"'Welcome to the Masquerade' takes TFK's hard rocking anthem songs to a completely new level. If you loved past efforts like "Rawkfist" and "Move", you won't be able to sit still for this new album. It's clearly one of the very best albums of the year, hands down." -

"Simply put, if you are a fan of arena rock or a long time TFK listener, you should be excited about this, as it blows away anything else I've heard in the genre all year long." -

"'Welcome to the Masquerade' is a nearly perfect album, it is filled with a few simply wonderful and noteworthy songs. Fundamentally it is an excellent work that has stunning production and a crisp, rich sound." -Kyle Kiekintveld,

"On their latest release, Thousand Foot Krutch presents one of their edgiest and most diverse projects to date. On 'Masquerade,' TFK acknowledges their strengths and builds on them to create one of the standout rock albums of the season - if not the year. If you can only afford one rock record in the weeks ahead, there's no mistaking that 'Welcome To The Masquerade' delivers and does not disappoint."

"With each consecutive album you can hear the growth and maturity from Trevor and the other members of Thousand Foot Krutch. 'Welcome To The Masquerade' is not only TFK's best album yet, it has the potential to be the best album of 2009, lyrically, musical, and thematically. Be sure to purchase your tickets for "the ball", get your tux or dress and mask ready, and hit the lights, because the Masquerade has begun."

"'Welcome to the Masquerade' covers a lot of ground - and covers is well. It tackles weighty topics with depth and intensity, but also dishes out plenty of fun in the form of 'big, crunchy adrenaline rock,' as McNevan calls it." - Stars and Stripes

"Thousand Foot Krutch have finally created the masterpiece we all knew they were capable of...'Welcome To The Masquerade' takes everything you've ever loved about TFK in one well thought out and hard rocking package."

In addition to the amazing reviews trailing this release today, HM Magazine featured the band in the September/October issue as well as with a pull-out poster, which is on newstands now (see below). Fans can hear TFK perform new and favorite songs on the upcoming Creation Festival: The Tour beginning September 14th in Nashville, TN. For a city near you, please visit the Creation Tour website (
