Earlier this spring, the band released their third album. The disc, Two Lefts Don’t Make A Right … But Three Do, debuted at No. 38 on Billboard’s charts and was featured with four different, limited edition covers – each depicting a vehicle that has made a “bad” right turn.

Relient K’s record label, Gotee, is obviously proud of the lads’ accomplishment. “These guys have worked so hard over the last four years and have really not let themselves get too caught up with all that has gone on around them,” President Joey Elwood said. “But what I love the most is that their talent is not even close to peaking.”

Fans seem to share the same feelings. Relient K’s gigs often sell out at the club and theatre level. Of course, it helps that the band pretty much never stops touring. Already this year, they’ve been on the road since February on the See Spot Rock Tour, which also featured the O.C. Supertones, John Ruben, and Pillar.

When they were interviewed by POLLSTAR for the cover in fall of 2001, Relient K expressed their concern that they may be saturating the Christian market. For example, they played at 27 of 28 Christian music festivals during the summer last year.

“By Christmas time this year (2001), I don’t think we have any place in the Christian market left to play,” their manager Timothy Eddings said.

Well, they expanded their horizons and found some more places. Relient K’s new schedule features everything from run-of-the-mill clubs to venerable theatres and even a couple university stops.

With Anberlin and Don’t Look Down as support, Relient K will rock the States on the Everybody Wants To Rule The World tour from September 27 through the end of November.
