New record deal, new album for CCM hitmakers Relient K
AMERICAN rock hitmakers Relient K have fulfilled their contract with Gotee Records, have signed with Mono Vs Stereo and begun recording. Read a statement from the band's frontman Matt Thiessen, "We started recording the new record! Right now we're working at Dark Horse Recording with our favourite producer, Mark Lee Townsend, and after we get some tracks recorded, we're going to travel back to California to make some tunes with John Feldmann at the helm. After we turned in 'The Bird And The Bee Sides' we fulfilled our first record deal (six albums) with Gotee Records. This made us free agents. Our plan? Matt Hoopes and I just signed up to begin positions as A&R for the soon to be resurrected Mono Vs Stereo Records. We'll sign a few bands a year and also release Relient K's material through the label. We'll set up some email addresses soon with the specific purpose of receiving demos from unsigned artists. All this to say, we may eventually end up partnering up with the least evil of majors that expresses interest in giving us a helping hand. We'll just have to see."
