Relient K has fulfilled their contract with Gotee Records and has now signed with Mono Vs Stereo -- for which members Matt Thiessen and Matt Hoopes have also joined the A&R team with. The band has begun recording again for a new album to release later this year. Below is an announcement from Thiessen on the latest happenings...
"First off, we started recording the new record today! Right now we're working at Dark Horse Recording with our favorite producer, Mark Lee Townsend, and after we get some tracks recorded, we're going to travel back to CA to make some tunes with John Feldmann at the helm.
After we turned in The Bird And The Bee Sides, we fulfilled our first record deal (six albums) with Gotee Records. This made us free agents. Our plan? Matt Hoopes and I just signed up to begin positions as A&R for the soon to be resurrected Mono Vs. Stereo records. We'll sign a few bands a year, and also release Relient K's material through the label. We'll set up some email addresses soon with the specific purpose of receiving demos from unsigned artists. All this to say, we may eventually end up partnering up with the least evil of majors that expresses interest in giving us a helping hand. We'll just have to see. Fun stuff!!
Relientk.com is a temp site right now. Our apologies. Even though we're a bit notorious for having a terrible internet presence, we're planning an attempt to quickly rectify that reputation. Until then we'll lean on our myspace.
It's been a while since we've ventured out west (apart from Warped Tour), so we're going to do a short run of left side shows at then end of May. I've quickly become great friends with Adam Young from Owl City, and I'm really excited to announce that they'll be supporting us on all the dates. I'm also just as pleased to have Runner Runner and Classic Crime with us on selected dates...
5/26/09 Glass House (Pomona, CA - Owl City/Runner Runner)
5/27/09 The Dome (Bakersfield, CA - Owl City/Runner Runner)
5/28/09 The Boardwalk (Orangevale, CA - Owl City/Runner Runner)
