Relient K played its first gig in December 1997, back when Matthew Thiessen and guitarist Matt Hoopes were still in high school and tooling around in the latters Plymouth Reliant K, which inspired the bands name. The group recorded its first demo the following year with producer Mark Lee Townsend, who has worked on each of the bands subsequent full-length albums (although Five Score And Seven Years Ago was largely produced by Howard Benson).
In the ensuing decade, Relient K has released five full-length albums (of which three have been certified Gold), five EPs and a Christmas collection, toured incessantly, scored a string of hit singles, a Grammy nomination and two Dove awards, and performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan OBrien, Jimmy Kimmel Live and numerous other national TV shows. The Los Angeles Times 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. But the bands quirky sense of humor remains intact and theres a fresh excitement about the future.
