Backwards Dancer will be joining seminal post-punk outfit Say Anything for the entirety of their upcoming tour commemorating the 10 year anniversary of their pivotal In Defense Of The Genre record. This will be a very special tour for Backwards Dancer as Max Bemis (of Say Anything) not only signed them to Rory Records, his imprint under Equal Vision Records, but has also been a big influence on the band for a really long time.

As vocalist Zack Shaw puts it: “I’m beyond excited for the In Defense tour. In Defense in particular has been like a friend of mine since it was released so it’s surreal to be able to accompany Max and the band on tour. Working and building a relationship with Max over the last couple years has been incredible and something I’ll always be grateful for. We love him to pieces. When they released that record Max was my age and it has never resonated so much as it does now. Such an important and special record to me and honestly can’t wait to sing along every night!”
