I've had the pleasure of seeing Say Anything more than a handful of times over the past decade, but I've never seen mastermind Max Bemis so invigorated, so confident, so happy to be on stage as he was at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on November 30th. His excitement was matched only by that of the crowd, who were eager to hear his modern masterpiece in its entirety. And the set began with a song of rebellion...
Well, it's been confirmed. Say Anything will be hitting the road this fall with Saves The Day to perform ...Is A Real Boy and Through Being Cool for their 10 year and 15 year anniversaries respectively. To add to the awesomeness of this tour, Reggie and The Full Effect will be joining to perform their underrated album, Under the Tray. Pre-sale tickets will be available at 12pm local time and general sale will be available on September 10th. Say Anything and Saves The Day have also covered one of each others songs for the announcement. Jump to the replies to stream Say Anything's rendition of "You Vandal" and Saves The Day's cover of "Belt" as well as the tour dates and fanboy out...
Yesterday we brought you Reggie and the Full Effect covering He is Legend. Another one of James Dewees' perks for his Kickstarter was to play on a fan's demo/recordings. James ended up playing on an AP.net user's entire album, and as explained by the fan, "it's one of those things I had dreamed about as teenager when I first started writing music." The resulting album is up on Bandcamp in its entirety.
One of the cool perks offered by the Reggie and the Full Effect Kickstarter was the ability to get Reggie to cover any song you wanted. AP.net reader and backer, Peter, had RATFE cover He is Legend's "Dicephalous" -- and because Peter is awesome -- he wanted to share it with everyone. You can check it out in the replies.
You can stream a new Reggie and the Full Effect song titled "Revenge is a dish best served at Park Chan-Wook's" in the replies. The band's new LP, No Country For Old Musicians, will be available on November 19th.
Reggie and the Full Effect will release No Country For Old Musicians on November 19th via Pure Noise Records. It will feature guest appearances by Frank Iero, Adam Lazzara, Allison Weiss, Sean Ingram and Ray Toro. The artwork and further details can be found in the replies.

We have an EP coming out on Equal Vision Records soon. It’s like three songs. He’s happy and I’m really happy with it. When we started playing together again, it came about by me sending him demo songs. Since I’ve been home I’ve just been in the basement writing music. Ideas just keep pouring out. Some of them don’t sound Reggie enough to be Reggie, so I’d send them to Matt. He’d send them back with vocals that would blow me away.
James: I have this other thing going with Frank from MCR called Death Spells. We’re opening up for Mindless Self Indulgence in two or three weeks. It’s more like an electronic-hardcore project. We’ve been working with a visual graphics artist and he’s been making these insane videos for us. The music is al little more intense...
i've spent many years touring with my chemical romance as their keyboard player and over those years i realized that i am without a doubt, a silly person, i write silly music, say silly things, i generally have a very absurd look on life. Reggie, is how i share that silliness with all of you. I've always been honest with my music. Whatever goes on in my life i write music about.

"I started this as a joke band and it became a real band after The Get Up Kids broke up. Then I got way into debt and drugs. I've cleaned up the drug part, but still have the debt and the jokes. I'm thankful for everything I've done, mistakes included. I love candy and my friends; if my friends tasted like Runts, I would eat them without a doubt. Duh, who wouldn't."
