MercyMe Release ‘All That is Within Me’, Stop in Alberta

Published: 2007-10-11
Texas rockers MercyMe are set to release their fifth studio album All That Is Within Me on November 20. The new single, "God with Us" has received nearly 65,000 plays in its debut week on the band's official Myspace page.

The band got away from it all and recorded the majority of the album at Cider Mountain Recorders, a ranch in Idaho and also recorded the strings section at Abbey Road Studio in London, England. Lead singer, Bart Millard says of the album, "When we started making the new album…I guess the underlying theme is us trying to be a grateful people for the fact that God ever looked our way to begin with. The song "God With Us" is the first song we wrote for the album, that we kind of built everything else around. We've been obsessed with this idea that we're nothing without Christ and there's no reason why he had to include us in anything but he still did, and how grateful we should be for the rest of our lives, and how we should spend it glorifying Him. Even though it will never compare to Calvary, we don't do it just because we're supposed to, we do it because we've been completely changed, and this is our attempt to try to wrap all of that up into one song. It's become a really special worship song to us, and I hope it really ushers a lot of people into the throne room of Christ through worship."

Canadian fans can catch MercyMe on January 25 when they perform at Breakforth Canada at the Shaw Conference Center in Edmonton, Alberta. For more information and to listen to "God With Us", please visit www.myspace.com/mercyme.
