More Relient K Updates

Posted by - 10:45 AM on 04/15/13
Relient K have posted a few notes of clarrification from their previous post.
Just to clarify a few things about Relient K. (From our previous post)

1. We will be doing the upcoming tour as a full band, and we are very excited about it! Dan Gartley and Tom Breyfogle will be performing on bass and drums respectively. They are both amazing friends (from Canton, OH), and incredibly talented musicians.

2. We are all still friends, and only want the best for each other.

3. Our new album "Collapsible Lung" is finished and will be coming out soon. It was made by all five of us. We apologize for the delays thus far. We are so excited about it and can't wait for you to hear it!

When Matt and I started this band in high school, we could have never imagined where it was headed, and it has continued to be a blessing and an amazing experience throughout the years. Thank you for sticking with us, hanging out with us, singing with us, and being a part of our lives.

Life happens. It is difficult to balance families, financial responsibilities, relationships, and the rest of life. Time won't slow down, and we are all on a journey, becoming the people we are going to be, and figuring out how to live.

The Jo(h)ns and Ethan are not able to do this upcoming tour. We hope to continue to make records and play shows together in the future.

We do plan to continue to play shows and make records. We would only ask at this point for your continued support. These types of things can tend to seem more dramatic than they actually are, and we urge you to not spread speculation about what may be going on. We would ask that you would support us and hope for the best for us individually and collectively.

Perfect example of why I love these dudes so much. Stoked for the new record, even more stoked they addressed they don't plan on stopping.

Yep this is what I was thinking and hoping they'd say. I've loved this band since I first heard The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek a decade ago, even though only a couple members remain the same. As long as Thiessen and Hoopes are involved, it'll be Relient K and it'll be great.

They should've figured their short, non-detailed message would set off a firestorm. Nice to see this response.
