    Relient K is an American rock band formed in 1998 in Canton, Ohio, by Matt Thiessen, Matt Hoopes, and Brian Pittman during the band's third year in high school and their time at Malone University. The band is named after guitarist Hoopes' automobile, a Plymouth Reliant K car, with the spelling intentionally altered to avoid trademark infringement over the Reliant name.

    I keep hoping each week they're going to drop some album info or new song... A lot of suspense here.

    Why? There's literally no chance that every song on their new album is better than Look On Up, ha. If there is then I'll be very surprised and very happy.

    Bite your tongue, impetuous one! Prestigious

    "Look On Up" is great, though if it doesn't fit the vibe of the final album, I'll accept it not being on there.

    I just want a new album.

    This band has kinda lost me. Four years between FANSD and Collapsible Lung, which was a total flop... still love a few of their albums and would love if they released something I'm really into again.

    another FANSD soon would arrive at the right time in my life but i get the impression they're sticking with more upbeat vibes from here on out. which is fine ofc

    I have a sneaking suspicion that @mmhmm is someone from the band.

    I'm almost always wrong on these things, and the silence Brand New often disappoints me, so I'll just let Relient K toy with my emotions a little longer.

    Only person I can think of is Ethan Luck, he had Combat Chuck as a username over on the old RKMB back in their hayday.

    I just posted this in the RK subreddit...people on there are way to light on CL and people try to come up with all kinds of weird, convoluted theories to defend it.

    I know I'm not the only one who feels that way and it's a shame that it's gotten to this point. I'll listen to whatever they put out whenever it eventually happens but I am finding myself caring less and less as the weeks and months go by and they continue to just be totally silent. At a certain point, to me, it just shows a sort of lack of respect to fans. Not that we're entitled to anything, I guess. It's just so frustrating.
