Maxim Mental Drops Video For Latest Single ”Grace Beyond Christ”

Maxim Mental, the solo project of Say Anything​​’s Max Bemis, has released “Grace Beyond Christ,” another new track from the upcoming album Make Team Presents Maxim Mental in Maximalism out July 8 via Dine Alone Records. Maxim Mental has also released a visual accompaniment for the song.

Max Bemis spoke of the new song, saying “Given my album’s tendency to examine mental health through an almost fun, weirdly sexy lens, this song is about how in the past couple years, I’ve had to think about doing…it…a lot despite a hunger for living. I’m indeed a believer in some esoteric version of a higher power, but (and pardon me god-peeps) my wife has saved me from situations involving or possibly leading to it far more than any religion. One could even argue that since I hold the key to my actions and fate, the almost-parental allowance of the free-will needed to up and it myself is part and parcel of how Adonai himself works. And that he left the job of being the sweetest and most encouraging and forgiving to my wife Sherri. So yeah, this song is about suicide and how my wife is nicer than Jesus and more stimulating than drugs.”

Make Team Presents Maxim Mental in Maximalismwas co-written and produced by Grammy nominated producer Will Yip (Code Orange, Title Fight, Turnstile) who is also a longtime collaborator of Max Bemis. Today’s song follows the release of singles from the album, Evermore (and the Grammy goes to)” and Girls The Truth.”

This summer Bemis will be embarking on a U.S. tour with dates that kick off July 8 in Philadelphia and conclude August 13 in Phoenix, AZ. He will play NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on July 9 and The Roxy in Los Angeles on August 12.  Throughout the tour, Max will be performing music across Say Anything’s catalog as well as new music from Maxim Mental.  All dates are listed below and tickets are on-sale now.
