Headline tour with support from Mewithoutyou, Teen Suicide, and Museum Mouth.
“As a gigantic fan of mewithoutYou, I’m still stoked that we’ve become not only peers and frequent collaborators – but close friends,” shares Say Anything mastermind vocalist, lyricist, and musician Max Bemis. “It’s rare to find a band whose live show and body of work “fits” as well with ours as theirs. This tour will be charged with energy and I’m already excited to get it started.”
Opening the tour is Museum Mouth, Bemis’ latest signing to Rory Records, his personal imprint label within Equal Vision Records. Museum Mouth will release a new full-length this year, with details to be announced soon. Museum Mouth offers a unique blend of lo-fi indie rock with grungy pop undertones, and is comprised of vocalist/drummer Karl Kuehn, guitarist Graham High, and bassist Kory Urban.
“Museum Mouth is a game-changing band for me as a fan of punk and indie rock,” Bemis has declared. “The mixture of “actually mature” humor and self-deprecation with cathartic, forward thinking energy and sonic choices, makes them a great band to represent a generation of smart kids with complex feelings that need to be addressed, but don’t want to be bored to tears in doing so. Karl as a songwriter and frontman is as unique as any I’ve come across and listening to this band makes me want to just dance my heart out. Add this to the fact that Karl is among a very rare breed of punk rock frontmen to unapologetically defy the sexual stereotype of the sullen, whiny heterosexual male, and I think it’s easy to see why I had to sign this band and recommend them to any listener who craves music that’s authentic, immediate and brilliant.”
The upcoming tour follows the highly successful anniversary tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of Say Anything’s …is a Real Boy and the band’s memorable Summer venture that featured accompaniment from a live string quartet to their full band set up, supporting Hebrews – the band’s fifth studio album overall and second studio album released on Equal Vision Records.
