Max Bemis and his wife, Sherri Dupree-Bemis, have a side project named Perma. They are planning to record an album early next year, and Max said to expect something "more delicate" than Say Anything.
From the InterviewMax: Great, itís awesome! Sheís (Sherri Dupree-Bemis) busy making a new Eisley record and Iím busy too. When weíre both finished touring weíll bunker down and write a record. The goal is to to record something at the beginning of next year.
AltSounds: What kind of sound can we expect from Perma?
Max: Itís going to be more delicate than anything Say Anything has ever done. Itís based on writing songs about my wife! I mean thereís some of the delicacy in Say Anything...

Max Bemis said the other night at the House of Blues in Boston that Say Anything will be releasing a box set of all of their unreleased albums and songs (including Baseball) next year and they will most likely be playing a tour based on mostly old material.

Forbes sat down with Max Bemis to talk about his "song shop" project.
From the ArticleďI feel Iím getting to function almost as a pseudo therapist for kids,Ē he says. Song Shop allows Bemis to create a direct connection to the most passionate fans, those who would gladly spend a little more cash for a unique connection to their favorite act, and itís a business endeavor that has a lot of spiritual gratification. While the fans certainly feel more connected to Bemis hearing him sing about whatever issues they were struggling with or random thought they wanted him to sing, it also helps Bemis connect to those who love his work: ďI really write and play the songs imagining someone hearing...

Check out a new interview with Max Bemis of Say Anything.
From the InterviewI think in this day in ageÖ Well first of all, on a creative level, to me there is definitely no such thing as writing too much music. You continue to develop and you canít evolve unless you are working on music or at least thinking about it. I never get burnt out on the act of songwriting, especially with Song Shop where Iím writing hundreds of songs a year. Itís just constantly a way to improve my singing and my songwriting and to stay in it. And itís also the thing I love to do the most. But then also, when it comes to the exposure and over-exposing, I just feel like in this day in age, where everyone...

Since the last bunch of ...IARB vinyl sold out in two hours, Doghouse Records will be releasing a "second chance bundle" of the Say Anything classic. Watch for that tomorrow around 5 pm EST.

You can download the new Say Anything song "So Good" here. Insert joke about song leaking a million years ago here. Although, personally, I kind of wanted to go with the Spider-Man 3 gif joke instead.

Say Anything are shooting a video for "Say Anything." It'll have Max as a baby - which sounds interesting.

Say Anything frontman Max Bemis wrote an essay on his definition of anarchy.
Creating Anarchy Is For The Greater GoodI am a fairly passive, overly analytical and neurotic Jewish guy with almost no set political beliefs or attachments and a seemingly tame lifestyle. I spend most of my time reading, playing music and hanging out with my wife. Gone are the days of wanton self-destruction and flagrant drug use. Thankfully, I've pulled myself out of a couple of pretty Sid and Nancy-esque relationships and now rest comfortably in a loving, supportive one. I sit around and play with my dogs a lot and live in a very conservative, slow-paced town in Texas. So why is it that at this stage in my...

Doghouse Records seems to be hinting pretty hard at a Say Anything vinyl re-issue.

At this point, we've all decided to listen to Max Bemis through thick and thin, in sickness and in health. For nearly ten years, the Say Anything mastermind has won over fans through all kinds of sounds, and will do it again with the release of Anarchy, My Dear on March 13th via Equal Vision Records. I had the chance to chat with Max, where we talked about the new record, "Admit It Again," ...Is A Real Boy, Perma (his band with wife Sherri Dupree-Bemis), and the future in general. You can read the feature right here.

Max Bemis talks with Billboard about the connections between ...Is a Real Boy and the band's upcoming album.
From the ArticleThere's a sense of chaos and an anything-can-happen sort of excitement. That was one of the defining characteristics of "ÖIs A Real Boy' and why people connected with it, was a certain amount of "I donít give a fuck." IT'ís like revisiting those themes, but where I can actually sort of tackle them with a clear head.

Spin has interviewed Max Bemis of Say Anything about the band's new album.
From the InterviewChanging labels did have a lot of the do with the creative process, with feeling like I could really put my heart and soul into something without straining it or having to be something to somebody because being on an independent label seeing us for exactly what we are. There was a little less pressure to be something that was more mass consumption-ready.
