Say Anything has announced the full US ‘Say Anarchy Fall 2012’ headine tour, with support from Murder By Death, The Sidekicks, and Tampa, FL’s Tallhart. The tour will kick off on October 4 in Anaheim, CA at House of Blues.
In March Say Anything released Anarchy, My Dear, their fourth studio album, which debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard Current Top 200 – the band’s best charting record to date. The album was recorded in Brooklyn, NY, with â€¦Is A Real Boy producer Tim Oâ€™Heir (Sebadoh, Superdrag) and has been praised worldwide by the likes of Billboard, American Songwriter, Entertainment Weekly and more.
The new dates follow recent international Say Anarchy Tours in the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States – the band’s most successful tours to date, filling venues to capacity around the world with massive shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, London, Sydney and more.
Frontman Max Bemis has also announced that Song Shop will be opening again, at midnight (CT) on the early morning of August 15. With Song Shop, he writes and records personalized songs, EPs or full albums, about anything the buyer would like. Each song also comes with a personal phone call from Bemis himself. To date, he has created over 2000 custom tunes. Additional details about the process, price and mailing list info can be found HERE.
Opening the tour will be Tallhart, the first band signed to Rory Records – Bemis’ imprint label on Equal Vision Records. The indie rock quartet is touring in support of their EP Bloodlines and their brand new, limited split 7″ with Brighton, UK-based solo artist Ed Tullett. Filter Magazine is streaming the record’s two songs here FilterMagazine.com.
Prior to the start of the Say Anything tour, Tallhart will venture out on a short run with Dashboard Confessional, followed by an East Coast tour with Belle Histoire. All upcoming Tallhart dates can be found HERE, and the Say Anything tour dates can be seen below.
