“I always told myself I wouldn't do such a thing unless I believed in and loved a band to the utmost degree, and if I could find a label partner that I could truly trust and enjoy working with. Well, peeps, that day has come!”
That day has indeed arrived for Max Bemis of indie rock outfit Say Anything - with said day being the launch of Rory Records, an imprint label within Equal Vision Records, and the signing of Tampa, FL-based quartet TALLHART.
In their three year tenure together, the band has already built up a solid local fan base and has quickly been gaining more widespread recognition, including praise and support from notable bands such as Anberlin, Underoath, Eisley and of course the aforementioned Say Anything. Bemis, whose band Say Anything is also signed to Equal Vision Records, will work closely with TALLHART, in developing the band and releasing their forthcoming music.
“They are TALLHART. A brilliant young band from Tampa who can write a stadium rock-level anthem like nobody's business but don't shy away from lovely, dense songwriting. They also put on a sickeningly great live show,” Bemis expounds. “To me, they combine the best elements of early U2, Manchester Orchestra and sort of a young Pearl Jam (that last one is a pretty weird call, but I stand by it): basically, smart and brave music, rich with a swelling, unfiltered feeling. I'll be working closely with them on many aspects of their music and the record, and am extremely excited for the release of their EVR/Rory Records debut EP.”
