Say Anything // Ryan Russell

Say Anything is back in the indie saddle! After their 2009 self-titled release on RCA and various side projects from frontman Max Bemis, their 5th album Anarchy, My Dear was released March 13thAnarchy marks a decidedly deliberate return back to the band’s roots. This comes as no surprise since Tim O’Heir, the producer of SA’s acclaimed …Is A Real Boy, also produced the new album.

You shouldn’t expect to hear the blatant zaniness that made ..Is a Real Boy so infectious duplicated on this new album, though. Bemis explains in an interview with Alternative Press: “[...] it’s no longer about coming into my own; it’s more about what do I think of the world, what are the changes I’d like to see, what do I think of life, how do I experience life. [...] That’s the main thing I would put out there in terms of describing this record, because it does have a concept: coming out from the pack, rebelling and choosing to make your life your own and not have your mind be controlled by society”.

Say Anything released the album’s single, Burn A Miracle, in December. Bemis cited it as his favorite song on the album. Again, the tone recalls the rebelliousness of …Is a Real Boy: It’s a “rebellious anthem that kicks off the record in this really energetic way,” said Bemis “and I haven’t written a song ever that makes me want to play it live and have a bunch of people singing it, since those early days of …Is a Real Boy. “
