Max Bemis is back, four years since Say Anything announced their hiatus, with his brand new solo album under the moniker Maxim Mental - and sounds nothing like you may expect. We caught up with Bemis following the release to discuss the new project, his pathway as an artist, influences and more.
As a band who have always had family at it's core, it was difficult to see whether or not Eisley would continue after both co-frontwoman Stacy King and guitarist Chauntelle D'Agostino would no longer be a part of the band. Shortly after announcing these line-up changes, Sherri Dupree-Bemis took to the band's social media to announce that they were recording the follow-up to 2013's Currents.
In the vein of pop superstars such as Queen Bey herself, Say Anything have dropped their newest release I Don't Think It Is without any forewarning. Stemming from Max Bemis' thorough disdain for the 'pre-album build up', they streamed their album for a day prior to its surprise release.
