Earlier this year we were blessed with the reunion of Say Anything after a four year hiatus. After gifting us with two new singles, “Psyche!” and “Are You (In) There?” over the summer, we just keep getting good news. Today, the band has released another new song, “Carrie & Lowell & Cody (Pendent)” and shared the news of their eighth studio album …Is Committed. Although we don’t have an official release date yet, we have a lot of great information regarding the new record! They have reunited with producer, Brad Wood, who worked with the band on their sophomore album …In Defense Of The Genre. “Carrie & Lowell & Cody (Pendent)” finds Say Anything back in their truest, strangest, most aggressive form and we love it.

Max Bemis spoke on his inspiration for the song, saying, “‘Carrie & Lowell & Cody (Pendent)’ is named (with the brevity of an early Minus the Bear track) after my affinity for Sufjan Steven’s titular album about HIS Mommy issues. I adore my mom to death and grew up both sparring and worshiping her, enmeshing myself in both her emotional genius and warmth and the wealth of generational trauma she inherited from her Holocaust-laden family. It took until middle age for us to get into our first real (heinous) fight, replete with actual stakes and a brief ‘let’s pretend we’re never going to talk again’ period.”

“I wrote this song,” He continues, “and much of our forthcoming record, during a period of such searing trauma and loneliness that not having my parental BFF by my proverbial side felt like an affront even if my mom was just trying to deal with other issues that come with being a child-soul with grown-person decisions to make…. Just like her bipolar pervert of a son. We in the SA camp figured serving y’all a spazzy, weird one after that last poppy jam would be fun, too, so here it is, with all the time changes and Sherri vocals you’ve come to expect.”
