Trevor McNevan began the band in Peterborough, Ontario, a city northeast of Toronto, where he went to high school. Joel Bruyere, born in Brantford, Ontario, was McNevan’s childhood friend who had moved away but remained in contact with him. Drummer Steve Augustine is from Hamilton, Ontario. Trevor’s first band was Oddball, which featured Dave Smith on guitar, Tim Baxter on bass and Trevor’s good friend, Three Days Grace’s Neil Sanderson, on drums. Oddball recorded only one album, Shutterbug, which was released in 1995. McNevan is the founding member of TFK (along with original guitarist Dave Smith), formed in 1997 in Peterborough, Ontario. McNevan came up with TFK’s name “symbolizing the point in our lives that we realize we can’t make it on our own strength”. He has written and released 6 albums with Thousand Foot Krutch to date and another four with his side project FM Static.
TFK has worked with Aaron Sprinkle (Mae/Anberlin/MxPx), Gavin Brown (Three Days Grace/Billy Talent/Thornley), Arnold Lanni (Our Lady Peace/Finger Eleven/Simple Plan), and Ken Andrews (Beck/Chris Cornell/Pete Yorn/Tenacious D) on their last 3 Tooth and Nail-released records.
