AP.net Interview: Relient K

Posted by: Jonathan Bautts (07/16/13)
Our interview with Relient K can be found here.
Itís kind of like when you get to this point in your career, Iíd rather people love it or hate it than not care. I actually read a ton of posts on Absolute Punk yesterday, just seeing what people are saying about it and stuff. Some people are violently opposed to the direction we are going, which is something we knew would happen. Honestly, Iíd like to see what they think about it later because a lot of them were saying that about our last record. I remember when that came out a lot of people hated it, like ďWhy is it so negative?Ē So I donít know. I think itíll be interesting to see what happens with it. Maybe itís not some peopleís thing and thatís OK, but weíll keep making music and doing what we do.

I thought FaNSD was pretty universally loved, no?

Either way CL has some good tunes, it got a ton of unnecessary hate.

Great interview. Relient K co-headline with Motion City Soundtrack?!??!! Punch me in the face that's fantastic. Glad to hear that Matt and Matt still have many records ahead of them, and haven't ran out of steam.

Collapsible Lung is actually pretty good. It's growing on me a lot. A fun pop-rockish album for people who don't like radio pop rockish music... and like Relient K. I'm going to listen to it again now matter of fact.

This is a really, really good interview. Glad to hear them admit that they were going for a top-40 sound. Not as glad to hear them say the next album might be in the same vein. Would love to hear a Thiessen/McMahon collab though.

If RK and MCS do a tour, that will make my year.

FANSD is on a whole other level. Their magnum opus, no contest for me.

It helps it came out at the perfect time in my life. Title track hits hard...

Collapsible Lung kinda helped fix my head, especially that opening track.

Pretty stoked that Dave and possibly Brian would go on tour with them. That was the line up the first time I saw them live.

Tour with MCS, 10-year Mmhmm tour, and at least a few albums ahead of them still? That's what I like to read, great interview.

I really hope they don't make another album like this one.
