Dead Sara’s Emily Armstrong Talks “Ain’t It Tragic” With Blurred Culture
LOS ANGELES, CA- “The Deadicated” have been waiting years for a new full-length album from Dead Sara. They released a 6 song EP on May 4th, 2018, Temporary Things Taking Up Space, but it’s been over 6 years since they dropped their sophomore album, Pleasure To Meet You. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Dead Sara, so when I got the notice from their label, Warner Records, that they were scheduled to drop their new album, Ain’t It Tragic on September 17th, I jumped at the chance to do a feature with them.
There was plenty to talk about, especially their history with prior labels and managers, but others have already broached those topics. Dean Delray did a particularly good interview with Emily earlier this year, and I’ve embedded that talk below.
Rather than discuss the past, Emily and I spoke a bit about the music that’s on the album, delving into the writing process, back-story, and inspiration for a couple of the tracks (“Starry Night”, “All I Know Is That You Left Me For Dead”, “Uninspired”, “Losing My Mind”, “Lover Stay Wild” & “Gimme Gimme”).
Check out the interview below, and make sure you get tickets to catch them live at one of the current tour dates. CLICK HERE TO SEE WHAT CITIES THERE ARE PLAYING and trust me when I say that they will rock your face off.
