Say Anything announce new member!
Say Anything has announced that bassist Adam T. Siska [ex-The Academy Is…] has officially joined the band. Former Say Anything bassist, Alex Kent, parted ways with the band last year, with The Starting Line/Person L’s Kenny Vasoli filling in temporarily on tours.
“Having parted much more than amicably with Alex last year (he’s still a dear friend), we knew it would be very difficult to find someone who can fill his shoes on both a professional and personal level, but we are so lucky that Adam happened to be available at exactly the right time, and somehow we seem to have ended up with both,” states Say Anything front man, Max Bemis.
“I couldn’t be more excited to become a member of Say Anything. I have been a fan of the band since the release of the debut album, and got to know them well while on tour during the summer of 2008,” adds Siska. “When I spoke to Max about joining, there was no doubt in my mind that this is a band that I believe in and want to put my heart into. I look forward to seeing all of you at shows very soon!”
Bemis concludes, “This is a guy who is in a band for all the right reasons: a love for playing his instrument and a passion for music. We’re fortunate that Adam happens to deem our music worthy of being the focus of that passion and are so excited to have such an awesome new member of Say Anything.”
In a recent interview with Alternative Press, Bemis revealed that the title of Say Anything’s forthcoming album will be Anarchy, My Dear. The full-length album will be released by Equal Vision Records in early 2012. This winter, Bemis will head out on a short solo, headlining tour with wife and Eisley vocalist/guitarist Sherri DuPree-Bemis. All upcoming solo tour dates can be seen below.
