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 ...
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 members, John Warne, Jon Schneck and Ethan Luck have posted an update on the band's current status.
It is with sadness that we write you to say that we will not be touring with Relient K on the upcoming tour dates. This will be the first tour that the Jo(h)nís have missed in over eight years, and the first that Ethan has missed since he joined the band in 2008. We will miss seeing you all on the road this year, and we want to thank you for always being there for us. Hope to see you soon.
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.
