The Offspring and Dead Sara Duet on Stripped-Down 'Gone Away'
SoCal vets get a charge out of tour openers

Last fall SoCal punk luminaries the Offspring hit the road, tapping up-and-coming Los Angeles outfit Dead Sara as openers. The two bands clicked, and soon Offspring frontman Dexter Holland was looking for a way to work with Dead Sara singer Emily Armstrong: "When we started building our own set list, I realized the stripped-down version of 'Gone Away,' which we've been doing for a few years, would fit Emily's voice really well," recalls Holland. "It turned out to be a special moment in the show each night." With the help of producer Bob Rock, Armstrong and the Offspring re-recorded the Ixnay on the Hombre track. Now you can check out this exclusive video of them performing "Gone Away" at the Hollywood Palladium in October – with some extra vocal help from the audience, of course.
