Taking their irreverent live show to the masses, Grammy-nominated Relient K will head out on the road with Paramore this spring, including a stop in New Jersey for the The Bamboozle on May 1, announced last week. The tour starts April 26 in their home state at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium, confirmed dates below.
Relient K’s current release, Forget and Not Slow Down, is co-produced and written by Lead Singer Matthew Thiessen—one of the busiest songwriters in the business. Thiessen has been doing studio time this winter co-writing with Andrew McMahon and Katy Perry for each of their forthcoming releases. Thiessen’s work continues to hold on Billboard’s Top 200 with Owl City’s Ocean Eyes featuring the Thiessen produced, #1 Billboard Hot 100 smash hit single “Fireflies”.
Relient K is Matthew Thiessen (vocals, piano), Matt Hoopes (guitar), John Warne (bass), Jon Schneck (guitar) and Ethan Luck (drums). Their new indie-influenced modern rock record Forget and Not Slow Down was released on October 6th and blends thought provoking lyrics with a distinguished new sound.
