I have been a fan of Relient K since their formation in 1998. I own all their cd’s (physical copies of the first 5 before mp3’s/iPod) and saw them in concert at least 3 times when I was younger. They were my favorite band as a kid! To prove it, here is an embarrassing picture of me from high school in my green Relient K shirt which was undoubtedly the first band t-shirt I ever owned.
Now that we got that out of the way, I found out yesterday that Relient K is coming out with a new album called Collapsible Lung on July 2nd, 2013! Here is the first single, Don’t Blink:
In the anticipation of the album coming out I have been listening to all their older stuff and getting back into the songs that I really loved by them. Here is a list of my favorite song from each album.
Relient K (2000) – Hello McFly
The Anatomy of Tongue and Cheek (2001) – For the Moments I Feel Faint
Two Lefts Don’t Make A Right…but Three Do (2003) – Falling Out
Mmhmm (2004) – Be My Escape
Five Score and Seven Years Ago (2007) – Deathbed
Let It Snow Baby, Let It Reindeer (2007) – Sleigh Ride
Forget and Not Slow Down (2009) – Sahara
Is For Karaoke (2011) – Baby
There are many other great songs that you should check out to start getting prepared for their new album. If you were already a fan you probably don’t need me to tell you to check out their new album but if you aren’t at least do it for your inner junior higher.
