MAX BEMIS SONG SHOP OPENING FEBRUARY 4TH W 2013 WITH A NEW OPTION TO HAVE SHERRI DUPREE BEMIS SING ON THE TRACK
We’re thrilled to announce we’ll be opening the Max Bemis Shop for the first time in 2013 on February 4th, 2013 at 12am central us time (as in the beginning of that day).
Not only is this in and of itself a cool happening, but we will be offering, for the first time ever, after a lot of requesting by you guys, the option to buy a song featuring collaborative vocals by me AND my wife Sherri DuPree Bemis, who fronts Eisley and sings with me in Perma. Essentially it’ll be like buying your own Perma song!
For those not familiar with the it, Song Shop is a place for fans of my music to buy song written and performed by me about anything you want. We’ve sent out songs to over 2000 stoked Song Shoppers and the project has developed into something amazing over the past few years.
Though not the only reason to buy a “Featuring Sherri” song, one of our goals with this new feature is to make the perfect Valentine’s Day present for 2013.
Though you don’t at all need to want a love song in order to have Sherri sing on the track, we’re going to offer a special Valentine’s Day-friendly package for anyone who buys a “Featuring Sherri” song.
Basically, since we obviously won’t be able to get done hundreds of songs before V-Day 2013, and we have a baby coming around that time, if you do buy one of those songs, you’ll receive a link to a printable V-Day themed certificate that lets whoever you’re giving the gift to know that they’ve got a song coming this year (this is optional in case you want to surprise them later on.) Also, you’ll get a free download of an exclusive mp3 featuring Sherri and I that you can listen to or send immediately. This free downloadable song will be centered on the fact that your loved one has a Song Shop coming. That way you’ll have something cool to give them on the actual date.
However, the “Featuring Sherri” option extends to any subject matter. This option will be available exclusively (for now) as a full length Song Shop Song that features vocals from both of us and will be sold for $207- So not an exorbitant amount more than a regular full length Song Shop Song.
As always, we’ll be offering regular Song Shop songs sung by just me at the same rates listed on the site, as well as the option to buy EPs or full albums of Song Shop Songs. You can even add a “Featuring Sherri” song to your EP or Album or have it completely comprised of them. EPs are sold through the email address listed on our site and are comprised of four or more songs of any length- this will get you a 10% discount.
SO – Very excited to get this going and appreciate all the excitement I’ve received about opening up again. Please spread the word to your friends or let your loved one know this is something you’d like if you want the V-Day present option.
Thanks guys! Stay tuned to my twitter as I usually take questions about the Shop and/or set up a skype account to discuss stuff with y’all.

SAY ANYTHING TO RELEASE ALL MY FRIENDS ARE ENEMIES: EARLY RARITIES ON JANUARY 22, 2013 VIA EQUAL VISION RECORDS
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.
