Consecutive Gold Album, Due Out March 6th
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 28th, Gotee/Capitol Records will release "Must Have Done Something Right," the ebullient first single from Relient K's upcoming album, Five Score And Seven Years Ago. The single will be available at all digital retailers. The single plus a bonus track, "Fallen Man," will also be available as an MP3 file for $0.99 direct from the band's website -- www.relientk.com. "Fallen Man" will not appear on the forthcoming album. The same single plus bonus track will be available on iTunes. A higher quality 320kbs MP3 download of "Must Have Done Something Right" plus the bonus track will also be available for $1.25 via the band's website. Despite three consecutive Gold albums, a Grammy nomination and two Top 20 singles ("Be My Escape" and "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been"), Relient K may be pop-punk's best-kept secret. "We're still under the radar, nobody knows who we are," says lead singer/guitarist/pianist Matt Thiessen gleefully. The band has long had a strong internet presence -- 2004's mmhmm debuted at #1 on the internet chart (and at #15 on the Billboard 200) and Relient K currently has upwards of 360,000 myspace.com friends. Five Score And Seven Years Ago -- the title is both a reference to the album being the band's fifth in seven years and a nod to Lincoln -- presents 14 slices of life as only Relient K could render it, beginning with "Plead the Fifth," an "eyewitness" account of Lincoln's assassination from a bogus conspirator and concluding with the 11-minute, 115-track tour-de-force "Deathbed," told by an end-stage cancer patient who has mercifully not lost his sense of humor. "The Best Thing" and "Must Have Done Something Right" are fueled by an infectious exuberance while the hard-edged "Devastation And Reform" captures our innate aptitude for doing something wrong, despite our best intentions. Relient K -- comprised of Thiessen, lead guitarist Matt Hoopes, drummer Dave Douglas, bassist John Warne and Jon Schneck (guitar, banjo, and bells) -- recorded most of Five Score And Seven Years Ago in Los Angeles with producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, The All-American Rejects). Three tracks were completed thereafter in Nashville with Mark Townsend, who produced each of the band's previous works, including their initial demo. Guest artists include Switchfoot's Jon Foreman. Five Score And Seven Years Ago will be released on March 6, 2007. http://www.relientk.com http://www.myspace.com/relientk
