birdsRelient K’s latest release, The Bird & the Bee Sides, is pretty much as good as it gets for a fan of the band and music fans in general.  It’s called an EP but houses 26 songs, sounds like they’re setting the bar for other bands up there to step up to the plate!  Offering up rarities, acoustic versions and new songs all on one disc, there’s a little something for everyone and then some.  Giving music fans a taste of Relient K’s future while still holding on to the past seems to be the encompassing theme of the disc.  Relient K fans are a passionate bunch and this EP is sure to keep them satisfied.

Fresh off or Warped Tour Relient K is currently out on the Uncle Fest Tour with Ludo and This Providence sharing the stage with them.  If you’ve always wondered what Thiessen would look like as a vampire, here’s your chance to find out.
