Say Anything's new song, "Burn a Miracle," perfectly exemplifies the main theme of upcoming album, Anarchy, My Dear, which the band says "is about rebellion." In an interview with Billboard.com, frontman Max Bemis noted that fans can also expect a sound that digs at Say Anything's roots.
[2004's]…Is a Real Boy absolutely has "a foundation in what we were doing on that record. There's a sense of chaos and an anything-can-happen sort of excitement. That was one of the defining characteristics of '…Is A Real Boy' and why people connected with it... It's like revisiting those themes, but where I can actually sort of tackle them with a clear head... I 100 percent know in my heart, more than I ever did, that we made the best record we could -- but at the same time… it's a strange parallel between caring a little bit less what everyone thinks of it because I love it so much, and knowing I wrote this record to reach people that are die-hard Say Anything fans."
So there you have it, rebellion with a cause -- and a cause that's central to the fans. Bemis also noted that SA's upcoming tour will be yet another tribute to the fans, consisting of a "hits-laden" setlist: "If we're going to play three or four new songs, we want the rest to be the most fan-favorite tracks we could possibly have." As far as the album itself, you can expect it to drop March 13 via Equal Vision Records.
