Relient K - known for their distinct Christian rock style rich with bright vocal melodies – came to town as a surprise. It was one of the most pleasant surprises announced this time of the year. As part of their tour for their latest album “Collapsible Lung”, the band showcased its 12 buzz-worthy songs effortlessly live in Trinoma, Market Market, Glorietta and Alabang Town Center. Alongside this recent release, were a number of songs from their rich 10 year discography. And their free-spirited vibe and feel-good nature were very much embraced in the 4 venues.
The Grammy-nominated band has over two million records sold, two Dove Awards and three RIAA Gold-certified albums attesting to their success. Its front man, Matt Thiessen also had songwriting collaboration for some top pop hits including Owl City’s 2012 summer hit “Good Time,” Kelly Clarkson’s “Long Shot” and the award-winning “When Can I See You Again” from the animated film Wreck-It Ralph.
