Biography

Los Angeles, California, United States (2001 – present)

Say Anything is an band formed in Los Angeles, California, United States in 2001. Originally dubbed Sayanything, the band now consists of founding members Max Bemis (vocals/guitar) and Coby Linder (drums), along with Jake Turner (guitar), Jeff Turner (guitar) and Parker Case (keyboard).

Say Anything began their career when the band was still in high school. They self-released two EP’s and one LP entitled Baseball. Baseball and the band’s first EP, Junior Varsity, are both out of print and are no longer available. The band’s second EP entitled Menora/Mejorah was released online. All of these early albums have a sound reminiscent of blink-182 and of Max’s favorite band, Saves The Day.

In August 2004 they released …Is a Real Boy on Doghouse Records. The album was produced by Tim O’Heir (Sebadoh, All-American Rejects, Superdrag) with arrangements by Stephen Trask (Grammy nominated for Hedwig & the Angry Inch). While recording the album Max Bemis had a nervous breakdown during which he took to the streets of New York until his girlfriend found him and ended up in a mental hospital for a few weeks. He attributes the breakdown to stress and bipolar disorder.

Some time after …Is a Real Boy was released, a set of 8 songs entitled Vs. AIDS Demos were leaked onto the internet by an unknown source.

    there are some really great songs on the new album. nibble nibble is so mentally disturbing which is a fantastic thing in music. i love that max refers to his older work in a lot of the songs. musically, i feel like this album sounds a lot like IDOTG. i love hebrews so far.

    This albums is him basically saying we'll never get another Is A Real Boy and that's a damn shame.. I'm one of the people he wrote this album about lol. I still think IARB is a masterpiece but damn it sucks that Max was struggling in his life during that time because that album is fucking beautiful.

    Better than AMD. There's some decent early tracks but it drops off hard during the second half and there's still so many cheesy moments and unfortunate guest spots. Wish he would find something other than his critics to sing about.

    Hebrews is p good considering how shitty anarchy was. Bands don't typically recover from trainwrecks like that; atleast enough to make a semi-decent album.

    I think the new album might be their worst yet. Tried too hard to be different and just ended up a total mess.

    I didn't really like the new album after my first listen, but it has grown on me so much after giving it some (actually, a lot) more of my time. It's probably my third favourite album of 2014 right now, behind The Hotelier's "Home, Like Noplace Is There" and Modern Baseball's "You're Gonna Miss It All." Also, IARB > S/T > Hebrews = IDOTG > AMD > Baseball

    New album is interesting. I'm going to need a few listens to let it sink in.

    @BrosephMcBrah feel the same way, it all works really well when you listen to the album from start to finish. That being said, the Los Campesinos! guest spot is underwhelming as hell.

    I was really worried this was going to suck hard, since most of the singles' production value was terribly terrible. But I'm actually enjoying this quite a bit. Thank jesus.

    Oh man thank the Basedgod that Hebrews is good. I didn't think I could handle another record as bad as A,MD.
