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!

It appears that Zac Farro (ex-Paramore) may be playing with Relient K as the band prepares to head to Australia. This seems very possible with Novel American going on the backburner.

You can check out our interview with Blackbear here. We talk about his most recent mixtape, as well as his involvement on the upcoming Relient K album, due in 2013.
From The InterviewRelient K is one of my favorite bands ever, and I feel their albums get better and better as they go. I'm blessed to be good friends with Matt, and he doesn't feature a lot on albums, let alone a borderline hip hop mixtape. I met Matt in Los Angeles, and we wrote a song for the new Relient K album. I flew to Nashville and worked on the record with the rest of the guys. Amazing new music, be on the watch for it

Matthew Thiessen of Relient K recently spoke with Grammy.com about writing Owl City's new single, "Good Time." Additionally, he says a little bit about the upcoming Relient K record.
From the InterviewI'm making a pop record right now with my band [Relient K]. It's kind of similar to some of the stuff I've been writing recently. And Brian's been involved with a few of the songs. I feel like I'm writing some catchy music and just kind of continuing my band and also just writing with other people whenever I have the opportunity.
