Say Anything

On June 10th, Say Anything will release their highly anticipated new album Hebrews. Judging by the album’s two previously released singles (“Six Six Six” and “Judas Decapitation”), plus the long list of esteemed guest vocalists (including members of Blink 182, The Get Up Kids, Saves the Day, Manchester Orchestra, Every Time I Die, Eisley, and many more), the twelve-track, guitar-less LP will be Max Bemis’ most ambitious project yet. With just a few short weeks left until Hebrews’ release, fans are getting one more taste of the upcoming album via its title track and third single.


The song is streaming thanks to Red Bull Music, and in typical Say Anything fashion, vocalist Bemis provides a social commentary using the upbeat track. “This song is my attempt to address mass trauma amongst any given culture, and how years of a people acting or being treated a certain way can leak down, almost genetically, into how you live your life,” Bemis said in a statement.

Brian Sella, vocalist from one of my favorite bands, The Front Bottoms, lends his talents to the rousing gang vocals in this song. Although the buzzing synthesizers and catchy hook are enough to get me pumped for the record, this single is particularly exciting because I worked with Sella at Doghouse Records, the label that released Say Anything’s hit album …Is A Real Boy, in the summer of 2009. He was just beginning his career with The Front Bottoms and was so excited to be working at the label that launched Say Anything as he felt his band was of a similar style. I can only imagine how thrilled he must have been to sing for his heroes!
