Los Angeles rock band Dead Sara have announced the release of their highly anticipated self-titled debut album on April 10th on Pocket Kid Records/ Fontana/Universal. Having spent much of last year in the studio, Dead Sara has hit the road in support of their debut full-length album beginning with a week of shows in Austin, TX at the SXSW Music Festival, followed by a spring tour supporting Chevelle, and radio festival dates including BuzzFest in Woodlands, TX, EdgeFest in Dallas, LAZERfest in Des Moines, and the Big Gig in Hartford, CT. Additional dates will be announced. The band will cap it all off with a 40+ date coast-to-coast run on the Vans Warped Tour this summer, beginning June 16th, and will perform at the annual Warped Tour kick-off party/record release party on Thursday, March 29 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.

The bands' explosive first single "Weatherman" has sunk its teeth into Modern Rock and Active Rock radio and is already the #1 Most Requested Song at KYSR/Star 98.7FM in Los Angeles, while also scoring early adds from influential stations across the country.

The 11-track full-length debut set, produced by Noah Shain (Atreyu, As Tall As Lions, Sonny Moore/aka 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.

The album veers effortlessly from melodic, soaring tunes such as "We Are What You Say" and "Whispers & Ashes," to fierce, blaring tracks "Monumental Holiday," "Lemon Scent," and "Weatherman," to bruised, power ballads like "Dear Love," "Face to Face," and the epic closing track "Sorry For It All."

The band, praised for its blazing impassioned rock and catchy guitar melodies, have been attracting major buzz for the ferocious spectacle of their high-octane live performances. A study in contrast onstage: Medley remains rooted in place - a solid, steady anchor for Armstrong's almost unhinged performance style. A skilled vocal stylist who can handle blues, soul, and folk-rock with equal aplomb, Armstrong can unleash a guttural howl one minute and trill as pretty as a songbird the next.

"That diversity is what's honest and real to us," Medley says. "We love classic rock, blues, folk, metal, punk, gospel, all of it, so we didn't want to put restrictions on ourselves genre-wise. We just knew we wanted the music to sound really raw and primal, even a bit unsettling." Dead Sara embodies everything you want from a young, hungry, unpredictable and enigmatic rock band.
