SAY ANYTHING’S MAX BEMIS
AND EISLEY’S SHERRI DUPREE-BEMIS
ANNOUNCE TWO OF A CRIME
DEBUT PERMA FULL-LENGTH ALBUM
TWO OF A CRIME TO BE RELEASED
OCTOBER 29 ON RORY RECORDS
Say Anything’s Max Bemis and Eisley’s Sherri DuPree-Bemis will release the debut full-length album of their joint project, Perma, on October 29.
The album, Two of a Crime, will be released on Rory Records - Bemis’ imprint label within Equal Vision Records.
"The title track of the album is also debuting today, which features the signature sweet, dreamy sound of Eisley and the quirky, bold elements of Say Anything’s music – all with a charming romantic twist. The song can be heard HERE on SoundCloud.
"I love being in Say Anything, and I plan on continuing to do so for as long as I’m around. However, the history of that band is fraught with all kinds of ups and downs and demons and darkness. It’s part of what makes it special. Perma is a whole other kind of animal. How much more organic and fun for a start of a band can you get then just having it be a private joke between two people falling in love? Sherri and I literally started writing songs together for the singular purpose of wooing each other, and once we got the wooing done, it was to continue to expand upon our love for one another. That’s what Perma is, and it’s pure in that respect. As Say Anything progresses on its manic spectrum of darkness and light, I realized I absolutely NEEDED to have an outlet to express the part of me I never have to doubt, which is my love for Sherri,” shares Bemis. “Recording this record was literally like a sigh of relief. I’m so incredibly proud of this record.”
DuPree-Bemis adds, “We’re both hopeless romantics, so getting to just have free reign on that topic and being able to let loose and even sometimes get a little silly about it was so natural and very true to who we are as a couple. We have a lot of fun together but also have a very deeply passionate love and I think this album captures both sides of that story.”
Say Anything released their highly anticipated, three-disc collection of remastered B-sides and rarities: All My Friends Are Enemies: Early Rarities, earlier this year on January 22. Before there was …Is A Real Boy, In Defense of the Genre, Say Anything, and their latest full-length album - Anarchy, My Dear, there was Baseball, Menorah/Majora, andJunior 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. Eisley also recently released a new album, Currents, in May 2013. The beautiful full-length album was self-recorded and self-produced in their home studio in Tyler, TX - the band’s first time recording completely independently - and seesEisley’s signature tapestry of rich harmonies, delicately woven over the band’s most intricate instrumentations yet.
Say Anything and Eisley just recently wrapped up the massively successful Say Anything Rarities and More tour together, which featured an all Equal Vision Records artist line-up of Say Anything, Eisley,HRVRD, I the Mighty and Northern Faces.
Perma will head out on tour this winter, with details to be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, fans can catch Eisley and Say Anything at individual one-off shows this fall. On September 14, Eisley will perform at Dia de los Toadies Festival in Ft. Worth, TX and Say Anything will perform at Riot Fest in Chicago, IL on the same day.

"Ah! Taking a big space truck with a bunch of strangers across a diamond planet called Midnight. What could possibly go wrong?"
Yesterday, I was walking through Washington Square Park when I noticed a small boy and his mother selling cowboy supplies. “We’re saving up for a horse,” they told me.
The boy’s name was Rumi. After speaking with Rumi’s mother, I learned that Rumi has loved horses his entire life. He has horse themed shirts, toys, and backpacks. All those things are great. But Rumi’s biggest dream is to own a horse. “You can get one for $1000!” he told me. After a full afternoon of selling cowboy supplies, he’d raised $1. He seemed a little downtrodden by the afternoon’s results, but committed to his ultimate goal.
That night, I jumped on the phone with a couple of horse experts— not Rumi’s parents— who have special expertise regarding kids who want horses. These horse experts— not Rumi’s parents— told me that having a horse is super expensive. It’s just about impossible for normal parents, especially ones who live in a small NYC apartment, and who aren’t wealthy, to provide a horse for their child. Sometimes this can be quite heartbreaking.
So I thought of a plan. Let’s send Rumi on a Wild West Adventure! With the size of the HONY audience, it’d be quite a simple thing to do. I spent all last night making phone calls, and threw in $300 to get us started. Please consider tossing a few coins in the [cowboy] hat:
