Say Anything frontman Max Bemis wrote an essay on his definition of anarchy.
Creating Anarchy Is For The Greater GoodI am a fairly passive, overly analytical and neurotic Jewish guy with almost no set political beliefs or attachments and a seemingly tame lifestyle. I spend most of my time reading, playing music and hanging out with my wife. Gone are the days of wanton self-destruction and flagrant drug use. Thankfully, I've pulled myself out of a couple of pretty Sid and Nancy-esque relationships and now rest comfortably in a loving, supportive one. I sit around and play with my dogs a lot and live in a very conservative, slow-paced town in Texas. So why is it that at this stage in my...

At this point, we've all decided to listen to Max Bemis through thick and thin, in sickness and in health. For nearly ten years, the Say Anything mastermind has won over fans through all kinds of sounds, and will do it again with the release of Anarchy, My Dear on March 13th via Equal Vision Records. I had the chance to chat with Max, where we talked about the new record, "Admit It Again," ...Is A Real Boy, Perma (his band with wife Sherri Dupree-Bemis), and the future in general. You can read the feature right here.

Message from Maxalthough some bands like to say that input from kids doesn't affect them, for us it does, and what we've heard from you about the music so far is humbling me on a daily basis. i can't thank you absolutepunk kids enough. i can't believe how much of what i've read has been nice and it's cool that we've inspired people to voice their opinions either way. we owe you guys everything. after all, without you, i'd just be some crazy skinny-fat dude yelling awkward impromptu poetry over clash covers. oh, wait...

Max Bemix (Say Anything) read some of your posts and was flattered by how nice some of you were (that's a first), and thus decided to do an acoustic version of "Colorblind." Only browsing casually, TiffyWiffy?
From the Blogi love you all. those who said they were stoked, even those who said they liked our first record more, or only like the second disc of our second record; hey, you're allowed! we partially made this new record to win you fickle sons of guns back. plus If you're one of the many people I saw who have consistently liked ALL our output, i still think this will be your favorite say anything record.
