Say Anything Sideband XO Plan New Release

12/13/2012
.
XO featuring Say Anything guitarists Jake and Jeff Turner are keeping things in the family with the project by signing to Anything frontman Max Bemis' imprint label Rory Records.

XO first release on Rory Records/Equal Vision Records will be a 7" single, expected to be out in early 2013.

Bemis had this to say, "Though it seems obvious for us to finally be working with Jake and Jeff because they play in Say Anything, the amazing thing is how unique XO is in that context. The band has made a huge creative leap recently - despite already being really awesome - and it's something we're really proud to display in our roster with our other Rory Records artists. They are making a hell of a record."

"We're working on creating a completely immersive experience when you hear our recordings and see our band. The songs are mostly love songs, sometimes anti-love songs, and they deal with death and the ever dying heart (figuratively and literally). The lyrics are definitely important to the music but the music is the guide, causing/releasing tension when needed," explains Jeff. "We have been approaching the music more like an orchestra of guitars, switching tunings almost every song, to create specific vibrations and hums, that drone along for a more cerebral experience. One that will be continued into the live show with projection of corresponding visuals to the songs."

"The fact that Rory Records is a new face in the business and have paired with one of the finest independent labels we've known, Equal Vision Records, we really find ourselves in a dream situation," Jeff continues. "We've been writing songs for years and to have Max Bemis, our friend and bandmate, tell us he wants to release the music we're working on really hits us hard. Equal Vision Records has been on our list of labels to sign with since we were 14 years old. Jake found a list recently that will prove it. Dreams do come true."
