Say Anything return with new single ‘Psyche!’

Say Anything release their first new music together as a band since 2019’s would-be swansong, ‘Oliver Appropriate.’ ‘Psyche!’ reunites Say Anything’s mouthpiece and mastermind Max Bemis with the band’s original drummer Coby Linder, former bandmates Alexander Kent on bass, Parker Case on synths and programming, and adding into the fold Brian Warren (Weatherbox) and Fred Mascherino (The Color Fred, Taking Back Sunday), who offered additional production on the track, alongside Case.

With his signature snarl, Bemis proclaims in the opening lines of the song, “We are born again. We’ve died and sprung to life, so wet and fresh.” ‘Psyche!,’ replete with lyrical nods to the band’s contemporaries in the pop punk scene – “I will sing the requiem” (Saves the Day), “Blink and you’ll miss” (Blink-182), “To the crucifix with Twin Fucking Forks” (Chris Carrabba) – is a near six-minutes long, stream-of-consciousness, self-referential and attitude-laden return for one of the most beloved bands to come out of the early-oughts alternative rock scene.
