New Album “Hebrews” Out June 10th via Equal Vision Records. Now Available For Pre-Order. Album Includes 16 Special Guest Vocalists. Tickets On Sale Now For Upcoming Tour With The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos & You Blew It!
APRIL 24, 2014 – Say Anything has released the first single from the highly anticipated upcoming album, “Hebrews” to be released on June 10th via Equal Vision Records. Fans can stream “Six Six Six” and read an in-depth interview regarding the album with front-man Max Bemis exclusively with Billboard now:
“Six Six Six,” features additional vocals from Eisley’s Sherri Dupree-Bemis, Balance & Composure singer Jon Simmons and Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra. Backed by a beautiful string section, the song’s lyrics discuss the devil existing in everyone. Religious identity is a theme that blankets the entire album. “A big part of the journey was also understanding my lineage and my culture,” Max explains. “That’s why the record’s called Hebrews. Whether you’re Jewish, Catholic or whatever, you come from a [larger] culture. It’s not a record about being Jewish; it’s about understanding where my neuroses come from. Is it from society, my parents or from the dawn of man?”
“Hebrews” also features 16 guest vocalists, which include Chris Conley (Saves The Day), Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids), Chauntelle DuPree-D’Agostino (Eisley), Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die), Brian Sella (The Front Bottoms), Aaron Weiss (meWithoutYou), Stacy King (Eisley), Bob Nanna (Braid), Gareth and Kim Campesinos (Los Campesinos), Christie DuPree (Merriment), Jeremy Bolm (Touché Amoré), Tom DeLonge (blink-182) and the aforementioned Andy Hull, Jon Simmons and Sherri DuPree-Bemis. The collection of 12 songs trade traditional rock-band instrumentation for more refined string arrangements.

On January 22, Equal Vision Records will release Say Anything’s highly anticipated collection of remastered B-sides and rarities: All My Friends Are Enemies: Early Rarities.
Before there was …Is A Real Boy, In Defense of the Genre, Say Anything, or their latest full-length album – Anarchy, My Dear, there was Baseball, Menorah/Majora, and Junior Varsity.
These early recordings were the start of Say Anything’s prolific, decade-plus long career, during which they’ve toured the world and sold nearly 500,000 albums.
“This release is over ten years in the making and something I’ve been dying to share with kids,” expresses Say Anything frontman Max Bemis. “We have incredible fans who have taken the time to dig for these tracks in the past so I see this as my way of rewarding them for being so awesome and hardcore.”
The three-disc release includes: Disc One – Baseball: An Album by Say Anything, Disc Two – Menorah/Majora EP and the Dormroom Demos, andDisc Three – Junior Varsity and Other Early Rarities. The first pressing of the release is limited to 5000 physical copies and includes detailed personal essays about the band and each album, written by Bemis. The complete tracklisting for each disc can be seen below.
In March, Say Anything released Anarchy, My Dear, which debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard Current Top 200 – the band’s best charting record to date. The album was recorded in Brooklyn, NY, with …Is A Real Boy producer Tim O’Heir (Sebadoh, Superdrag) and has been praised worldwide by the likes of Billboard, American Songwriter, Entertainment Weekly, and more.
The band has just wrapped up their full US ‘Say Anarchy Fall 2012’ headline tour, which featured support from Murder By Death, The Sidekicks, and Tampa, FL’s Tallhart. The tour followed recent runs in the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States, filling venues to capacity around the world with massive shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, London, Sydney and more.
