Max Bemis of Say Anything has posted a song shop update.
Okay! So here i am with another important Song Shop update. If i can ask you not to skim this email, and that would be a awesome. A lot of people have been letting me know they’ve been getting their songs and that they’re very moved by them. I cannot affirm enough how freakin’ awesome that is, so thank you and please do so when you get your song. It always makes my day/night. Others have been expressing how excited they are to get their song; thank you so so so much for your patience so far. It is invaluable and essential to Song Shop being a thing.

More importantly, I wanted to address something and am slightly nervous to do...

You can stream the first new song from Say Anything's new LP, Hebrews, in the replies (via Billboard). The song is called "Six Six Six," it features Andy Hull, and there's a pretty cool article/interview with Max Bemis at that link. New details about Hebrews, which drops June 10 via Equal Vision (tour dates here), include the tracklisting (in the replies), which has 16 guest vocalists like Tom Delonge, Chris Conley, Keith Buckley and more, and the fact that there are no guitars on the record.
"This has easily been the most gratifying and fun making a record has ever been," Bemis tells Billboard. "The sort of theatrical bent of the music is something that's always been a part of Say...

If you'd like to order the new comic series from Max Bemis, Evil Empire, you can do so here.
Told through the perspective of an underground rapper named Reese, Max Bemis’ gripping story explores a scenario in which we watch modern society gradually evolve (or is it devolve?) into an evil empire.

Say Anything won't be performing at Riot Fest this year due to a medical issue with an unnamed member of the band. A statement from Max Bemis is below; we send our best wishes along. Riot Fest set times were posted yesterday.
Hey y’all, with one of our members dealing with some pressing and unavoidable medical issues, we regretfully have to pull out of Riot Fest. Suffice to say we are bummed. Our sincere apologies to anyone hoping to see us. Meanwhile, you guys enjoy the great line up at Riot this year and we promise to make it up when we tour our new record in 2014.

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 can’t just be like, 'Let’s 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. “How 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."

Back when Andy Jackson of Hot Rod Circuit got married, Say Anything frontman Max Bemis gifted him with a cover of the band's "At Nature's Mercy."

Read my review of the Boston, MA stop of Say Anything's "Rarities and More Tour" with Eisley, HRVRD and I the Mighty here. It features footage of Max Bemis playing "A Boston Peace" live for the first time ever.
The intimate setting also afforded mastermind Max Bemis with the opportunity to get closer to the crowd. He said that, since they had the next day off, the band could go extra wild that night. And wild they went, for 75 intense minutes. Bemis deserves recognition for embracing the old material. He easily could have cashed his check for the rarities compilation without ever playing the songs; instead, fans are being treated to an entire tour dedicated to them. Bemis...
