With 16 No. 1 songs at Christian radio, four since going independent in 2012, Thousand Foot Krutch dares to lower the volume on its new single, allowing the melodies and words to soar. The highly personal prayer and confession powerfully delivered by TFK frontman Trevor McNevan, “In My Room,” from the band’s second consecutive No. 1 selling Billboard Hard Rock album, OXYGEN:INHALE, goes to Christian AC/CHR/Rock radio this week.
Can you meet me in my room?
A place where I feel safe
Where I don’t have to run away
Where I can just be me
“This song is about someone having an honest, unapologetic conversation with God, saying, ‘I know we’ve never spoke before, but I have no one else, and I need to talk. I think I believe in You, but this is the only place I feel safe, so can You meet me in my room?’” says McNevan. “Growing up, the idea of your room being a place of security is something most of us can relate too. I wanted to capture that intimate moment and cry for help, as honestly as possible.”
Following the No. 1 Rock hits “Untraveled Road” and “Born This Way,” “In My Room” continues the lyrical narrative of OXYGEN:INHALE that reads like an open letter to the broken-hearted, the lost, the abandoned and the hopeless.
“To me, the words are as important as the melody,” McNevan shares. “The song has to say something important, to connect with the audience on a deeper level. I had this image of prostitutes, addicts, business men/women, people from all walks of life, holding up a sign that reads ‘Breathe Through Me.’ Love includes everyone. We are called to love one another, help and support one another, and to walk through life together.”
As one of today’s best-loved, adrenaline-fused rock bands, TFK’s McNevan, along with bandmates, bassist Joel Bruyere and drummer Steve Augustine, are taking the message of OXYGEN:INHALE, along with their hits and fan favorites, around the globe. Having recently returned to North America following their tour of Australia and New Zealand that saw packed venues, TFK continues its “We’re Coming Right At Ya!” world tour. The band jets to Europe Nov. 23 before making its third trip to Russia in as many years and before taking the Axes & Anchors Cruise early next year.
