Thousand Foot Krutch Singer Trevor McNevan Says Their Song In ‘G.I. Joe’ Trailer ‘Was Rad’
Getting a song in a movie trailer is an impressive feat. Getting your song in the trailer for ‘G.I. Joe,’ one of the most anticipated blockbusters of the summer, is massive. Thousand Foot Krutch‘s ‘Fire it Up’ is in said trailer, much to the delight of singer/songwriter Trevor McNevan.
“I’m a huge movie fan and we’re hoping to fuse a lot more of the music with film. Being in the ‘G.I. Joe’ trailer…that was rad. We’re excited to see what opens up from here,” the vocalist told Noisecreep. He says that ‘Heat’ is one of his fave films of all times and he also dubbed the band’s new album “aggressive, adrenaline rock.”
We’d bet that plenty of doors – or ears – will be opened to Thousand Foot Krutch, thanks to that bit of exposure in the film trailer. The song appears on the forthcoming ‘Welcome to the Masquerade,’ which is the Canadian band’s sixth album and after 13 years, McNevan and his bandmates are still enjoying life as a band. “It’s been a gripping and inspiring ride so far, 13 years later, and we feel like we’re just getting started. We’ve been blessed to sell as many records as we have by the support of our fans alone and we have a great label, and a good team, but we’re not part of a big machine. We play hard and fight for every inch we gain and we give God all the glory.”
McNevan also revealed to Noisecreep that he is a massive Halloween fan – as in, the original 1978 film and the holiday. “I decorate my house for the occasion from September to December.”
