SAY ANYTHING- A GOODBYE SUMMATION
Hey there fans of Say Anything, Max’s other creative output, our extended family of friends and the general public.
Below you’ll find a downloadable, shareable PDF file that addresses Max’s status and that of Say Anything as well as important info about it the forthcoming LP, OLIVER APPROPRIATE. It’s a long read but probably the most important thing to read in some time if you love or have interest in the band.
The release date for the record is not far off in the future.
More info will come at a gentle pace. We’re in this together.

“Say Anything - A Goodbye Summation”
A Statement From Sherri DuPree-Bemis
Hey y’all, it’s Sherri here (Max’s wife).
Most people who know me personally (and most people who don’t – hi instagram! @sdupreebemis) know that I’m transparent and honest all of the time.
In 2007 I was lucky enough to come across and fall-madly-in-love-with, a man who is the same. Transparent. Honest.
Nearly ten years (and three kiddos) later, we’re still rocking and rolling together and it’s the best. Literally.
So, to keep it short (since Max’s statement is anything but), Max is doing great. We’re all loving on him and supporting him through this whirlwind of change and a huge career shift. He’s a madman. (Metaphorically, and not in the ‘crazy’ way that he often gets pinned as).
He loves madly, he cares madly and he creates madly. And I’m here to let you know, the narrative doesn’t stop here. It’s just the beginning. So stay tuned. And you (like me) will always be pleasantly surprised.
Keep up with him on Twitter; Or join me over on my Instagram for some sappy/adorable photos of him that I sneak when he’s not looking.
If you want to support him, know that this decision, the time leading up to it, and the time since have seen Max doing a lot of crying, taking time off from social media and anything triggering as much as possible....and growing. We’re best friends and so I know he’s in both a sensitive and strong state so kindness and understanding is all we as a family require from you guys if you choose to say hi.
If what Max wrote doesn’t make it clear, he’s recovering from a PTSD “breakdown” and this is not really bipolar-related stuff. It’s a guy who followed his passion to the point of almost breaking who stopped and saved his own life for us and those who care. Which has left him joyful but needing rest and relaxation and positivity.
We love you guys. Thanks for loving our family and always supporting us through our creative journey. We’re the kind of people who do not take that for granted. See you out there. Soon.

Hey everyone. It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the cancelation of the remainder of this tour. On top of Max’s congested chest and soar throat, Dr’s diagnosed Max with laryngitis and cautioned him to stop singing or risk permanent damage to his voice. Refunds will be available at point of purchase. Max will be posting a lengthier, personal note very soon. This will not have an effect on the scheduled Australian shows at the end of February.

Max has been recovering from the flu, but has relapsed. Drs. have ordered that he rest to avoid contracting pneumonia, and to finish the tour healthy. Unfortunately, we are having to cancel both Carrboro shows. Refunds are available at point of purchase.
