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!
Relient K has released a new song called "That's My Jam" that they did while recording their new album. It's a playful song that references a bunch of popular music from the 1990s. Check it out in the replies.
Matt Thiessen (Relient K) played two new songs at the Dear Jack's Benefit Concert. The first one is a new Relient K song, called "Sweeter." The second is a a song he wrote with his girlfriend, Jillia Jackson, called "Pot of Gold." Both are in the replies.
I checked, and couldn't find if we posted the full Relient K track listing for K is for Karaoke. So, here it is. This insanely fun cover album comes out October 4th. If things continue as planned: look for a new release for the band next year.
1. Girls Just Want To Have Fun (Cyndi Lauper)
2. Baby (Justin Beiber)
3. One Headlight (The Wallflowers)
4. You’re The Inspiration (Chicago)

The first in our series of Backstage Sessions filmed at the 2011 Warped Tour comes from none other than Relient K. Head to the replies to watch the band perform acoustic renditions of "Forget and Not Slow Down" and a cover of Weezer's "Surf Wax America" in Mansfield, MA.
The high-resolution artwork for Relient K's covers EP, K is for Karaoke, has been added to the AP.net gallery. Having heard the album, I think it's safe to say that fans of the band will have fun with it.
Relient K will release their covers EP, K is for Karaoke, on June 28th digitally and at Warped Tour. The full album will be in stores October 4th.
