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... 26 Comments -

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... 35 Comments -

You can download the new
song "So Good"
. 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.

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... 120 Comments -
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
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

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. 50 Comments -

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. 61 Comments -
