Dead Sara Announce North American Tour With Neon Trees And The Offspring

July 19th, 2012 by Megan Washington

Dead Sara has announced a new North American tour with renowned punk rockers The Offspring kicking off August 31st in Detroit, with Neon Trees slated to join the tour beginning September 6th in Boston. To further support the recent release of Dead Sara’s self-titled debut album, the band has also added further U.S. and festival dates through the summer and into the fall including the Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles, Riot Fest in Chicago and the Epicenter Festival in Irvine. Dead Sara have been attracting major buzz for the ferocious spectacle of their high-octane live performances on The Vans Warped Tour earlier this summer.

“We’re super excited to have Dead Sara out on tour with us,” said Dexter Holland, The Offspring. “Great players, great songs. We’ll be getting there early to see them tear it up.”

The “L.A. quartet poised to breakout nationally” this year, was recently profiled by RollingStone.com as their debut single “Weatherman” continues to explode at radio, fast becoming the most requested song at stations across the country, and climbing its way up the charts. “Dead Sara rocks so hard they remind me of the days when alternative bands, like Soundgarden and Alice, got played on Headbangers Ball. See them, listen to the album, they never disappoint,” says Julie Pilat of 98.7 KYSR. Dead Sara recently made their network television debut with a blistering, energetic performance of the single “Weatherman” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The band also performed the album cut “Sorry For It All” as an online exclusive for Jimmy Kimmel Live! View both videos now online.

Dead Sara’s 11-track self-titled debut, produced by Noah Shain (Atreyu, As Tall As Lions, Sonny Moore/Skrillex), is driven by the dynamic duo of two talented young women, singer Emily Armstrong and guitarist Siouxsie Medley. The band is rounded out by bassist Chris Null and drummer Sean Friday, creating an electrifying four-piece rock band whose supercharged music is propelled by Medley’s exhilarating, monster guitar riffs and Armstrong’s powerful, wailing vocals. Praised for their blazing impassioned rock and catchy guitar melodies, Dead Sara embody everything you want from a young, hungry, unpredictable and enigmatic rock band.
