Read a new interview with Say Anything's Max Bemis on Noisey.
I think it requires more work, but it always should have required more work. There was a brief period of time around a century long when the music industry got involved and figured out how to cater to the laziness of musicians. And we are innately lazy because we’re artists. There are people who work nine to five jobs thanklessly and don’t complain about it ever, and then there’s musicians, a lot of whom are receiving these giant advances from multi-conglomerate companies and essentially getting smoke blown up their ass and they feel like they’re the new Beatles, or at least trying to achieve that.

Listen to Max Bemis of Say Anything discussing "Push," "The Shape Of Love To Come," and "Boyd" off Hebrews below via PropertyOfZack. Next, he talks about "A Look," "Lost My Touch," and "Nibble NIbble" on Purevolume. Here is "John McClane," "Six Six Six," "Judas Decapitation." You can also check out our track by track videos.

Max Bemis of Say Anything talks to that "stupid website with Satan as its figurehead" about Hebrews.
And, eventually, it drove me to drop out of college and pursue music. "Admit It!!!" it was written around 2002, after the first Strokes record came out. This is pre-Vampire Weekend, it's pre-fun. and stuff like that. It was literally the beginnings of the "hipster." It was right then, people were just starting to move to Brooklyn to reclaim it and gentrify it. But I feel like I skirt that line—if you look at me, I could just be any other 30-year-old dude walking around in Greenpoint and my friends and tastes and sense of humor could just put me directly into what could be considered...

We have a pretty rad video exclusive today featuring Max Bemis talking about some of the songs on Say Anything's latest album, Hebrews. In the replies, you can check out Bemis going in-depth about "Kall Me Kubrick", "My Greatest Fear Is Splendid" and the title track. If you read my review of the album, you may recall that these three tracks are some of the most intense and unique ones on the entire album. The band is currently on tour with The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos, and You Blew It!.

Others have been expressing how excited they are to get their song; thank you so so so much for your patience so far. It is invaluable and essential to Song Shop being a thing.
