NEW MUSIC: Cleo's Ferry Cemetery
The physical editions of the Say Anything / mewithoutYou Tour Split are limited to only 300 copies total with only 10 copies being sold a night in each city of the band's Spring tour. But in case you aren't able to get your hands on one these coveted lathe-cuts, we are offering our side of the 7-inches for download on this very website as well as our Bandcamp.
"The original version of 'Cemetery' embodies what I love about Say Anything: vividly corporal, emotionally confrontational, self-deprecating, brutally honest, cynical/dark while weirdly hopeful, etc," explained mewithoutYou's Aaron Weiss. "He sings way better than I can, so why bother covering his song outright? Better to do something our own, even if it’s inferior, at least it’s not only inferior. Cobbling together lines of Max’s, lines of mine, a Morrissey lyric, it’s harder to know who gets credit if it turns out well, who’s to blame if it fails, probably accounting for the somewhat-less-anxiety-ridden-than-usual song production process. All this plus we can recommend a visit to Cleo’s Ferry Museum in Melba, Idaho—a partial-cure place, I think, for what ails 'people' like me and Max." - Aaron Weiss
