I started this back in '98. I Haven't released anything aside from the occasional song that's found a home on a comp or two. At the moment, I am a great explorer such as Magellan or Ponce De Leon. I am searching for the great treasure known as free time. Once I've found it, the result may be a full length recording from said side project. But for now I got 3 songs coming out on the Mono Vs Stereo release MY OTHER BAND: VOLUME ONE
1. The Calendar, The Energy (If This Is You Then Woe Is Me)
2. The Warmth Of The Sun - this is a Beach Boys cover
3. Faking My Own Suicide (Demo)

It will also featuring the following side projects, aka "my other band", so check them out too
Agnes (Dave, our drummer in Relient K)
My Red Hot Nightmare (Ethan from the Supertones and Demon Hunter)
Royal Empire Music (Davy from Bleach)
Tyler Burkum (from Audio A)

    i really, really enjoy listening to you, Matty T. Just hearing your voice completely cheers up my day, and it's weird that when I hear songs like Be My Escape, I don't think "gah! This again?!" I love it. And your "other band" completely rocks my socks. Lovin the style. :) Aug 22

    I was reading on your "Thanks to" section from relient K on your self titled album and saw "Matthew Thiessen and the Earthquakes" so I wondered what it'd sound like. This is very good music, I was already familiar with "Faking My Own Suicide" and "Deathbed". I saw relient K perform "Deathbed" in St. Louis on your Uncle Festour last year and it was the best! Keep it up, man. P.s. I made an account just to comment you so I hope it's actually you who reads them haha. Jun 15
