Anyone ever heard of/have this acoustic EP? If so, hook me up!

It's the Alive With The Glory of Love EP, right? I have it, I'll see if I can find a link to it online real quick before uploading it myself though. There is totally a site that has literally everything Say Anything has done, but I completely forget what it was called.

EDIT

Couldn't find a link to one, but I zipped it up for ya! Enjoy!

FROM MAX:
So it’s a bittersweet month for Say Anything. We’ve had a lot of exciting stuff happening in our camp, and in my life in particular with my baby being on the way, a ton of new music in the works, and our rarities record coming a month or so.

However, one major change has occurred that we feel obliged to share with Say Anything fans before our next tour. As of a couple weeks ago, Coby and I made the mutual decision to retire his role as the permanent drummer of Say Anything. This choice was made for a multitude of reasons, many involving where both Coby and I are at personally in our lives versus our roles in this band. I cannot stress enough how b.s. free of a decision this was or how close talking about it brought Coby and me. It is and was an utterly amicable split that we both agree is the best thing to to do.

Coby has had an unusual but integral role in shaping my life as a person and especially a musician. He is the most talented drummer I’ve ever known and has one of the kindest hearts as well. However, as Coby’s life developed in certain directions and mine in others, both musically and personally, we’ve found it hard to reconcile his particular role in SA with the way we interact as buddies and certain elements of the band’s dynamic. Coby having a strong personality and being such a spectacular musician and yet being tied down to such a encompassing musical identity such as mine is a hard thing to pull off, and though he did so with class and love for many years, it seems it’s time to try something else for both of us. We decided it would be better to make this change and remain as one of each other’s best friends than to let things get to a really bad place.

Say Anything will continue on without Coby but we will not be seeking a replacement drummer to play on the records we put out, as Coby and his style of drumming is, in many senses, irreplaceable; rather we plan on having a multitude of drummers play on our material. Say Anything on record will now be identified in the same way Nine Inch Nails is, in that it’s pretty much me and whoever I choose to play with at the time. Live shows will continue to have their own identity including Jake, Jeff, Parker, Adam, and whoever plays drums for us live. The band couldn’t be further from breaking up, and as I’ve said recently, we plan on releasing music as Say Anything forever, and already have a lot in the works.

I plan on scheduling a interview or podcast where I can really explain SA’S plans for the near future, including discussing how this change will really work in the band’s dynamic, but I’d really like to focus more on celebrating the amazing, life altering and mind-blowing experience I’ve had with Coby for the past thirteen or fourteen years. From Summer Camp, to my wedding, to our first tour, first time recording, and much more, Coby has been there for all of it and I am honored to have been able to have him be a part of this project. He will always be like a brother to me.
As all of you know, he is an utterly amazing drummer and will be missed, but nobody doubts you’ll be hearing a lot from Coby, whether that sis as a advocate of health and fitness, or as a drummer in a different context.

The past 14 years as a part of Say Anything have been UNREAL! Max and I have had an amazing ride as band mates together and we will continue to always be friends. I can say with 100% confidence that we are both at the best place in our personal lives than ever before, which is why this split is very un-nasty.

Playing music with Max always came easy. For those of you that don’t know, it would take me like 2 minutes to learn one of his songs because we were so locked in to each other. And his songs are all over the place!!! I have always been his biggest fan and I will continue to support him and the band with my heart and my thoughts and wish them all nothing but the best.

To everyone reading this: You all have had a huge part in shaping me into this person I am today, which I never thought I would be and am in complete shock everyday I wake up. What an amazing journey and only amazing things lie ahead for Say Anything, Max and I.

ALTPRESS Interview Monday December 31st

We appreciate all the support and attention our fans have given the band over the years and we know there are probably a lot you guys wondering about how things will work now and what the next year holds in store for the band, etc. so Max sat down with ALTPRESS to do an extremely in-depth interview about what’s going on. It will be up on Monday and we’ll link the story here. Thanks so much guys.

SAY ANYTHING

Reading between the lines, looks like Coby couldn't handle working with Max anymore creatively or professionally. They're choosing to not let business or music get in the way of their friendship.

Understandable, I get how Max can get really picky and controlling over his music, when I write my music I definitely have a pretty specific vision of how it'll sound, and it makes it difficult to get input from a 3rd party if it isn't the way you hear it in your own head. Sucks though :\

The way max words the 4th paragraph of that statement really troubles me.

"Say Anything on record will now be identified in the same way Nine Inch Nails is, in that it’s pretty much me and whoever I choose to play with at the time. Live shows will continue to have their own identity including Jake, Jeff, Parker, Adam, and whoever plays drums for us live."

The claim that he alone IS say anything. I love the dude, but that is a super cocky, self-centered statement. Does this irk anyone else?

Isn't that kind of the way Say Anything has been? Aside from IDOTG and S/T, all of their albums were written and recorded by him solely, with Coby on drums, no? I don't see how that's cocky, it's just the way he works. Some people have difficulty writing collaboratively.
