Relient K, the #1 ranked alternative rock band in the CBA marketplace,  has teamed up with Thomas Nelson’s Transit Books to release their first-ever book entitled "The Complex Infrastructure Known As The Female Mind: According To Relient K" (ISBN: 0-8499-4496-1,).  The book, debuting November 3rd, comes on the heels of the band’s highly anticipated fourth studio album "Mmhmm," which streets November 2nd via Gotee Records.

"The Complex Infrastructure Known As The Female Mind: According To Relient K"  aims to be the definitive guide for teenaged girls about the various other “girl types” out there.  Relient K gives their take on the pop-culture stereotypes including the Homecoming Queen, The Athlete, and The Overachiever among others.  The band shares both personal experience and advice for girls of all “types” on becoming women of God.   The 192-page book will retail for $12.99 and highlights Relient K’s fun-loving attitude towards life through quizzes, lists, stories and more.

Relient K’s most recent recognition came in the form of a 2004 Dove Award for “Modern Rock Album Of The Year” with their previous "Two Lefts Don’t Make A Right… But Three Do" release.  The band has heralded other accolades with the "Two Lefts Don’t Make A Right" album including a 2004 Vibe Award for “Best Rock/Alternative Album”, as well as 2003 GRAMMY nomination.  The album debuted at the #38 spot on The Billboard 200 and currently  Relient K is approaching the one million mark on total albums sold.  The band, who is on the road an average of 150-200 dates a year, has confirmed a street week club tour in 10 markets in support of "Mmhmm."   Relient K has also toured with acts including Switchfoot, The O.C. Supertones, and Five Iron Frenzy, as well as a tour earlier this year with openers The Rocket Summer, Yellow Second and Mae.
