Say Anything posted a bulletin on their MySpace today announcing a fall tour with Eisley and Moneen as support. I regret to say that for the first time since I fell in love with this band, I will not be attending their tour. Although the new self-titled album may surprise me, Max Bemis seems to have lost his touch for writing unique pop-punk. Have you heard any of the acoustic versions of the new songs? “Ahh… Men” and “Crush’d” are both rittled with lazily written, cliched lyrics and simplistic chord structures that are below what I know Max Bemis is capable of writing. I’d much rather sit at home and blast …Is a Real Boy than go to the show and be disappointed with how much new material is played. The bulletin and dates can be seen below:

“hi everyone. i’m thrilled to announce that some of our favorite bands will be joining us for our fall tour. first and foremost my beautiful wife sherri and her family play in a spectacular band called eisley. EISLEY will be playing the entire tour. also joining them throughout the whole jaunt will be the canadian rock and a half powerhouse MONEEN. MINIATURE TIGERS and MOVING MOUNTAINS will be splitting duties as the opening act. i’m stoked, you’re stoked, we’re all stoked to be stoked! see you this fall if you ain’t a square.”
