"Say Anything is an alternative rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, United States in 2001. Originally dubbed Sayanything, the band now consists of founding members Max Bemis (vocals/guitar) and Coby Linder (drums), along with Alex Kent (bass), Jake Turner (guitar), Jeff Turner (guitar) and Parker Case (keyboard), a lineup which has remained stable since 2005.
Say Anything began their career when the band was still in high school. They self-released two EP’s and one LP entitled Baseball. Baseball and the band’s first EP, Junior Varsity, are both out of print and are no longer available. The band’s second EP entitled Menora/Mejorah was released online. All of these early albums have a pop punk sound reminiscent of blink-182 and of Max’s favorite band, Saves the Day.
In August 2004 they released …Is a Real Boy on Doghouse Records. The album was produced by Tim O’Heir (Sebadoh, All-American Rejects, Superdrag) with arrangements by Stephen Trask (Grammy nominated for Hedwig & the Angry Inch). While recording the album Max Bemis had a nervous breakdown during which he took to the streets of New York until his girlfriend found him and ended up in a mental hospital for a few weeks. He attributes the breakdown to stress and bipolar disorder." LAST.FM
