THE SAY ANARCHY AUSTRALIAN TOUR
Featuring The Getaway Plan & Guests
SAY ANYTHING ANNOUNCE FIRST AUSTRALIAN HEADLINE TOUR!
After more than ten years, four studio albums and an immeasurable amount of
anticipation, the wait is finally over! Destroy All Lines is pleased to announce that this July,
Say Anythingwill voyage down under for their first ever Australian headline tour. The
Say Anarchy Australian Tourwill be the bands first in over three years, with the
Californian indie-punks last in Australia to wow audiences at the 2009 Soundwave
The ingenious indie punk brainchild of Max Bemis, perhaps best known for their
provocative lyrics, quirky music and eccentric live shows, has been making their odd,
ever-changing and simply unclassifiable music for over a decade, with no signs of slowing
down. Their breakthrough studio debut and critically acclaimed 2004 release...Is A Real
Boygarnered praise from media across the board, hurling them into the spotlight. With all
eyes on the fresh--‐faced duo, Bemis (just 20 years old at the time) took the natural next
step. Grabbing a few more of his friends and diving into a relentless touring schedule,
Bemis began building a loyal following through his tongue-in-cheek outbursts and
animated live show.
Fast forward a few years and were met with the heralded release ofAnarchy, My Dear
(March 2012, via UNFD). When it came to recording studio album number four Bemis
reconnected with producer Tim OHeir [Sebadoh, Superdrag, All-American Rejects].
Fuelled by a sense of urgency and aggression, the product of the collaboration is a
showcase of the raw energy, dynamism and exuberance that sparked the bands early
success. In Bemis own words,Anarchy, My Dear is our first attempt to write a true punk
record; thematically speaking, its a collection of songs about subverting society and
destroying the boundaries humankind has placed upon ourselves both physically and in
our minds. Coincidentally, it also happens to be the first record weve made in years
where we had total freedom to explore our edgier side and present a raw picture of what
the band is truly about onstage.
Australian fans were tempted with a taste of the animated and eccentric live showSay
Anythinghas become renowned for way back in 2009. Come July Say Anything will
reward their Australian fans patience with the opportunity to take in their full live
experience with extended sets.
Fresh from appearances on two of the country's premier music festivals (namely Big Day
Out and Groovin' The Moo), Melbourne'sThe Getaway Plan have been touring
relentlessly since the release of their sophomore albumRequiem in November 2011. With
a solid reputation for delivering one of Australia's most explosive live shows, they will set
the stage forSay Anything to bring the show home on all dates. The Say Anarchy
Australian Touris destined to be one of the Must See shows of 2012.
