After four years since their last full-length studio album, GRAMMY®-nominated Relient K returns with their seventh LP project, Collapsible Lung, on July 2 (Mono Vs. Stereo). Relient K is a band that writes from personal experiences and this has paid off with over two million records sold, three RIAA Gold-certified albums and a highly dedicated fanbase. As a prolific songwriter, Relient K's frontman, Matt Thiessen, has paved a road with pop hits over the last four years including co-writing Owl City s 2012 summer hit "Good Time," Kelly Clarkson s Long Shot" and the award-winning "When Can I See You Again" from the animated film Wreck-It Ralph. Like previous efforts, Collapsible Lung also stems from the band's personal experiences; however, this time around they chose to mix-it up and co-write for the first time ever on a Relient K album. This time around, we wanted to have a collection of songs that surprised even us," states frontman Matt Thiessen. To do that, we teamed up with several other writers in LA, Nashville, and New York City. This ensured that the new LP would be unpredictable. Each song includes a different combination of authors, yet there is an underlying thread that ties the tunes together thematically. We took an experimental approach creating the album, and we couldn't be more pleased with the result."
