Relient K has pushed back the release date for their new album, Five Score And Seven Years Ago, until February of next year. You can read a statement from Matt below.
Ok… So I’ve been planning on writing a little update for a while now, and I’m finally getting around to it. This summer has been SO crazy. I slept in my own bed for only 3 nights of it. Not that I’m complaining… Its been a lot of fun writing and recording this new record. We worked our tails off trying to get it done for a November release, but a few weeks ago, we got word that Capitol wants to push it to February. Its a big bummer for us (because we hate going more than a year without putting out new music, and we worked so hard to meet the deadline), but in all honesty, I think this is by far our best recording. We just want to make sure that we have plenty of time to let people know the new album is coming out. The album title is going to be Five Score And Seven Years Ago, and its going to have between 12 and 14 songs (I haven’t decided yet). Its a pretty diverse album as far as songs go. There’s some heavy songs, some mellow tracks, some really happy stuff, an a cappella song (with a cappella drums), and an eleven minute story song (which happens to be my favorite thing we’ve ever done [by far]).

We had a really good time making the album in LA and Nashville, and we got to have some friends guest on the record (Jon Foreman of Switchfoot etc…) Tonight we leave to go on the Nintendo Fusion Tour with Hawthorne Heights, Emery, The Plain White T’s, and The Sleeping. We’re super excite biked to get out on the road and have some fun touring again. We’ll being doing the old tour journals, some podcasts, and hopefully getting another couple episodes of Woodland Forest going (it kind of went on hiatus while we were making the record).
