RELIENT K HEADLINES
"UNCLE FEST TOUR," KICKING OFF OCTOBER 2ND

Band Records Three New Tracks For Let It Snow Baby...Let It Reindeer, Scheduled For Reissue October 7th

Fresh off their latest co-headlining slot on the Vans Warped tour, Relient K announces the 25-date "Uncle Fest Tour," which will launch October 2nd in Madison, WI and conclude November 2nd in Chicago, IL. Relient K will headline with Ludo, This Providence and House of Heroes opening.

In between tours, the band is recording three new tracks - "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Silver Bells" and "Oh Holy Night" - for the October 7th reissue of its 2007 Christmas collection, Let It Snow Baby...Let It Reindeer. (CDs will come with a card enabling fans to download the additional songs for free.)

"We took a quick breather after Warped Tour, and now we're headed back to Nashville to track a couple of Christmas songs and rehearse for the upcoming Uncle Fest Tour," says Matt Thiessen, Relient K's lead singer-guitarist-pianist, who was featured on the cover of Alternative Press' August issue. "We're excited to hit the road and get back to some of our favorite clubs and theaters."

After five full-length albums (including 2007's Five Score and Seven Years Ago, which debuted at No. 6 on The Billboard 200), five EPs and 10 years as a band, Relient K took a look back and a look ahead with The Bird and the Bee Sides. Released in July 2008 and entering The Billboard 200 at No. 25, the 26-song collection included an assortment of b-sides, demos and rarities culled from the Relient K archives plus 13 brand new tracks.
