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.

Max Bemis is writing a comic called Polarity.
From the ArticleThe series also mirrors Bemis' own character arc that he lived: "finding out I have bipolar, dealing with the disease, being in denial that I had it, screwing off and then eventually taking responsibility of it," he says. "That was sort of a drama in and of itself, so in crafting this main character, my goal is to create the ultimate archetype of a guy like me dealing with this." [...] With each issue, Bemis is also including a free download of a new original song that, when collected the others, be part of a four-track EP soundtrack for the series.

Max Bemis and his wife, Sherri Dupree-Bemis, have a side project named Perma. They are planning to record an album early next year, and Max said to expect something "more delicate" than Say Anything.
From the InterviewMax: Great, its awesome! Shes (Sherri Dupree-Bemis) busy making a new Eisley record and Im busy too. When were both finished touring well bunker down and write a record. The goal is to to record something at the beginning of next year.
AltSounds: What kind of sound can we expect from Perma?
Max: Its going to be more delicate than anything Say Anything has ever done. Its based on writing songs about my wife! I mean theres some of the delicacy in Say Anything...

This week I explore the functioning behind the great wars of our vast comment sections. As a site built around discussion on a number of topics, has AbsolutePunk opened you up to new views you wouldn't otherwise see? How many times have you opened up to another user's opinion on an album or song or artist and gave it a second shot with different results? Do you generally take a publication's word on an album review, or do your friends and own expectations matter more? I'm interested to know how many of you rely on media outlets and how many of you have outgrown them over the years...well, to an extent of course.

Forbes sat down with Max Bemis to talk about his "song shop" project.
From the ArticleI feel Im getting to function almost as a pseudo therapist for kids, he says. Song Shop allows Bemis to create a direct connection to the most passionate fans, those who would gladly spend a little more cash for a unique connection to their favorite act, and its a business endeavor that has a lot of spiritual gratification. While the fans certainly feel more connected to Bemis hearing him sing about whatever issues they were struggling with or random thought they wanted him to sing, it also helps Bemis connect to those who love his work: I really write and play the songs imagining someone hearing...
