Say Anything’s New Album Doesn’t Have Any Guitars On It

Say Anything

Last month Say Anything confirmed that they would be releasing their sixth studio album, titled Hebrews, June 10 via Equal Vision Records. What they didn’t tell us though was how ambitious and unique this project was going to be. Today, the band teamed up with Billboard to reveal some very exciting details about their upcoming album as well as premiere the lead single.

In a brief interview with Billboard, Max Bemis states that there aren’t any guitars on the album. Instead, it’s full of orchestral instruments. In addition to that, there are sixteen guest vocalists on the album. The first two are on the first single off Hebrews, which is titled “Six Six Six.” The song features Jon Simmons of Balance & Composure and Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra. The album also features Tom DeLonge, Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die, Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids, Chris Conley of Saves The Day, Bemis’ wife Sherry Dupree and sister-in-law Chauntelle DuPree-D’Agostino, and more.

“Six Six Six” might not be an easy song to play live, which Bemis acknowledges will be the case for the whole album, but it is definitely very entertaining to listen to. I’ve been a fan of the band for years, and can’t wait to hear what else is on this album. Be sure to read Billboard’s entire article for the rest of Bemis’ interview and stream their new single, “Six Six Six,” after the jump.
