Relient K Rocks the Ayala Malls

Relient K band members John Warne, Matt Thiessen, Jon Schneck, Matt Hoopes, and Ethan Luck are now ready to entertain their legions of loyal fans.

I was invited to attend the press conference of a Grammy-awarded band,
Relient K, at the Oz Bar - Holiday Inn & Suites Makati.
The venue was full of press people, all excited to see the said band.

Bloggers, media and press people waiting for the arrival of the band.

The event's host, VJ Chino of Myx.
(That time, I wasn't looking at him as VJ Chino.
Last Monday, I watched MYX Daily Top 10, and there, he wore a cheer dancer outfit. Hey, VJ China! :D)

And the start of the interview........

The 2 Matt's answered some questions from the press people.
They talked about their inspirations and experiences.

Few trivia about the Relient K
  • They started as a high school band in 1997 .
  • They already have six full-length albums: five EPs and a Christmas record. 
  • The band first entered the mainstream scene with the release of their 2004 studio album, “Mmhmm”.
  • They are nominated in Grammy, has over two million records sold, two Dove Awards and three RIAA Gold-certified albums.
With songs inspired by personal experiences,
Relient K has gained a dedicated fan-base who easily related to their songs.

Matt Hoopes and Matt Thiessen

Its front man, Matt Thiessen, also had songwriting collaboration for some top pop hits including 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.

A signed copy of their latest album, Collapsible Lung.

Relient K was known for their distinct Christian rock style but the band has recently experimented on a new genre with more catchy tunes and bright vocal melodies.

In their latest album “Collapsible Lung”, its 12 buzz-worthy songs effortlessly evoke a free-spirited vibe. Some of the feel-good songs under this album are “Don’t Blink”, “If I Could Take You Home” and “Boomerang”. Also for this album, Relient K has collaborated with some genius writers like Fernando Garibay (Lady Gaga), Ari Levine (Cee Lo Green, Bruno Mars), Evan Bogart (Beyonce, Rihanna) and Tim Pagnotta (lead singer/writer for Sugarcult).

It's my first time to listen to the songs in this album
And Don't Blink is my favorite! :)

"Hold on now don't you blink or it's gone
I've been terrified of life for way too long
Oh no now don't you blink or it's gone
In another life who knows what we'd become?"

Expect Relient K band members John Warne, Jon Schneck, Matt Thiessen, Ethan Luck and Matt Hoopes
