Bassist leaves Say Anything
2010-09-29 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 58 Comments

Say Anything bassist Alexander Kent has left the band.

Kent explained his decision in a Facebook post: "All of the guys and I are still best friends and hopefully always will be. There are no hard feelings and there was no altercation. I have just decided to start the next chapter of my life.

"As George Bluthe once said, "It's time for me to mozy on, partna." I'm not sure what I'm going to do besides start brewing beer and going to school. I'll still play music too - maybe with Brian from Weatherbox."


Kent will be replaced by Kenny Vasoli of Person L and the Starting Line for the upcoming tour with co-headliners Motion City Soundtrack.

Max writes pretty much everything, but I've heard that Alex did contribute a bit, and his basslines were tasteful. In any case it could be worse.

I am somehow not scared for the band's future... Sad when a member leaves, though.

headline should be...

"not max bemis leaves say anything"

so people will not care just the same as when they hear "bassist"

alex kent is the shit. don't know what the fuck y'all are talking about. while is a real boy is still my favorite say anything album, the bass work on idotg is miles and miles ahead of its predecessor. clearly because of this guy.

Say Anything is still alive as long as Max and Coby are in the band.

andcas i care about this more if it helps, but i feel like this band has already peaked, and pop-punk isn't really my thing. I did like Was/Is a real boy and IDOTG but just didn't feel any desire to even pick up their latest after listening once.

What I'm trying to say is if I want to listen to this band ill listen to one of those and be content.

Don't mean to poke my head into the convo but I was a bit skeptic about their latest myself, even being a fan before it's release, but after maybe 3 or 4 listens I found myself enjoying it profoundly.

okay you guys need to break out of the delusion that max writes all the music. that was true for IARB, but ever since then coby linder, the drummer and alex have written the drum and bass parts. so this will affect the band more than you think. still not really at all cus its the fucking bass, but still, stop being retarted

"terrible band, this is the first good news posted about say anything on sputnik."

Couldn't agree more. Terribly awful band, we can all only hope that this has a domino reaction and the rest of the band leaves and never speaks about or attempts to create any music ever again.

idk where you're getting your facts man... all sources ive seen point to bemis writing all the instruments parts and the other members just playing them. But okay.

Yeah Max said once in an interview that Alex was a much better bassist than him

I'd like to also point out in regards to the 'Bassists are disposeable' thing that whilst this is true, how many crappy bass players are out there?

It's like omg bassists are so unimportant but when they suck they get complained about. Shit's wack.

Anyways, band is good, got some good songs, has weak moments in the cheesy lyrics (see: Crush'd, but I think that was purposefully cheese) but altogether don't really see anyone in their genre, or anything close to their genre, doing anything as interesting as this dude. I mean, IARB is seminal, but their last two albums were still pretty solid.
