Thousand Foot Krutch announced its first new studio album in over two years, Oxygen:Inhale, set to release independently on August 26, worldwide. The album is being produced by frontman Trevor McNevan in collaboration with Aaron Sprinkle (One Republic, Anberlin, Pedro the Lion, The Almost) for a goal-driven PledgeMusic campaign.

For the release of Oxygen:Inhale, the band is asking its fans to help by each donating a dollar to fully support the campaign. McNevan reflects on the album:

Oxygen is our lifeline: to live life to its fullest, to treat every day like it might be our last and treat other people the same way. We can’t see it, but we need it. It exists. It fuels everything we are.
