Los Angeles-based four-piece Dead Sara has been whirlwind of activity in 2012. After winning audiences over at SXSW, they released their debut full-length in April; hit the road with Chevelle, The Used, and Vans Warped Tour in the spring and summer; and have now announced a series of tour dates supporting The Offspring this fall!

“We’re super excited to have Dead Sara out on tour with us. Great players, great songs. We’ll be getting there early to see them tear it up,” says The Offspirng lead vocalist Dexter Holland, and I have to agree. Fans will be getting a headliner-level performance from the opening act on the tour, and the addition of Neon Trees a week into the tour just makes it that much more enticing.

Prior to their dates with the Offspring, Dead Sara will be joining the band at the Sunset Strip Music Festival alongside the likes of Marilyn Manson, Steve Aoki, and Bad Religion. Check out their acoustic SXSW performance at PureVolume House with 987 FM below, and I would say to make sure to catch Dead Sara when they play a venue near you because you don’t know when they’ll be back, but touring seems to be a non-stop activity for the band. I guess I’ll just say to see them as much as you can, when you can, because the venues are just going to get bigger and bigger as Dead Sara blows up.
