Relient K has been making the real thing since 1997, when Thiessen and Hoopes formed the band in high school. In the decade since, they've released five full-length albums (three are certified Gold), five EPs and a Christmas record, toured the globe, and racked up several hit singles, a Grammy nomination, two Dove Awards and performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O' Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The Los Angeles Times has praised Relient K for "its smart blend of punk pop and power pop, weaving together influences as diverse as the Beach Boys, Blink-182 and Fountains of Wayne" while Spin noted, "Few bands play punk-influenced modern rock as proficiently."
The name Relient K has always been synonymous with melodic songwriting, tongue in cheek humor, and all around good music. The band is set to release what is easily one of the most fun and indiscriminate cover albums to grace alternative music to date.
"We have always talked about wanting to do a covers record, and we are excited to finally release one. We always try to include cover songs in our live show, so it was nothing new for the band, and working through the songs was fairly easy. We tried to put our own take on the songs, but while retaining the melody and other musical sections from the original songs." - Explains Matthew Hoopes
