Relient K Biography

Canton, OH's Relient K joined the parade of Christian punk-pop artists (MxPx, Ghoti Hook, Slick Shoes, etc.) with their self-titled 2000 debut, mixing catchy melodies and snotty attitude with spiritual concerns; the record was produced by dc Talk guitarist Mark Townsend. The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek followed in August 2001. The album sold 300,000 copies and Relient K's momentum continued to build as they played nearly 200 shows in North America before the year's end. A third full-length, Two Lefts Don't Make A Right, But Three Do, debuted at #38 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart upon its release in spring 2003. The band didn't waste any time recording a fourth album; Mmhmm, which was produced by lead singer Matt Thiessen and dc Talk's Townsend and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge, was released in November 2004. MMHMM scanned over 51,000 copies sold during its first week. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
