Max Bemis of Say Anything participated in Noisey's 'Rank Your Records,' naming ...Is A Real Boy his favorite and Anarchy, My Dear his least favorite.
I sacrificed so muchóquite the few emotions, body parts. And I can hear that and itís uncomfortable. That being said, I think itís number one is because I donít think when people say they like it, that itís just nostalgia. I think thereís a part of it thatís nostalgia, which is cool, because I have that for all my favorite records. But for me, Iím a 30-year-old, average, semi-hipster. Literally, Iím probably the Noisey target demographic. But my favorite record of all time is Saves The Dayís Through Being Cool. And I refuse, no matter what...

Max Bemis will make his debut with Marvel Comics, penning a story in November's A+X #14. This will be his first work for a major publisher. The artwork is below.
The story, which features a team-up between the Superior Spider-Man and Magneto, is described as Bemis as being "high concept."
"It canít just be like, 'Letís just take the Hulk and Spider-Man and put them against this particular bad guy and they find some creative way of beating him,'" Bemis said of the story. ďHow do you take a team-up and make it more of a psychological study than an action piece? All of the ideas I pitched had that sort of element to it."

Hey y'all... just wanted to say as we approach the 2013 opening of Song Shop that it has been a great honor being able to do this project for the past 4 or 5 years. As of now we have sent out about 3000 songs (crazzzzy) and I couldn't be more proud of the reactions we've been getting. It's beyond fulfilling and I am so thankful to get to know all of you so closely. Many of you guys know my wife Sherri and I are about to have our first daughter, Lucy- even though technically when you buy a song you're paying for a service, you're also giving us as a family a huge...
At last night's Rarities release show in Austin, Max Bemis announced a handful of updates. Max and Sherri's daughter Lucy will be born within the next few weeks or so. The Perma record is almost finished and will be released in fall. Lastly, Bemis has written half of the next Say Anything record, calling it his darkest, most twisted material. The band will hit the studio to record it after the Perma record is out.
We've received exclusive word that Max Bemis and Sherri Dupree-Bemis have officially starting tracking Perma's full-length debut in Tyler, TX. The album is due out in 2013 and will be accompanied by touring and music videos.
Rob Johnson's new single "The Wasp And The Flame" (from his new album Throw The Sun Into The Sea) can be downloaded here. The album is the follow up to 2009's Upon A Painted Ocean, which featured guest vocals from Max Bemis of Say Anything.
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.
