“The musical approach we’re taking—in how we’re producing the record and how it’s going to be arranged—is going to be really radical for us. I can’t give away the exactly definition of why it is so radical. [But] when it comes to what the instruments sound like and the types of music on the record—I think we’re going to be stripping away all comfortability when it comes to that on this next record. In some ways, it’s going to be a total 180 for us.
But then, the cool thing about the record is … what I have written so far—and how I plan to produce it—is also the most self-indulgently Say Anything record that I’ve ever written—almost to the extent that I think I lost the want to escape the cliché of Say Anything. I think the past couple of records, for me, have been [about] trying to avoid being pigeonholed. And in a way, we’re going to definitely be doing that by changing so much sonically and musically.”
Say Anything’s latest album, Anarchy, My Dear, was released last March on Equal Vision Records.
