After a sold out performance at the 2012 Halifax Pop Explosion, indie rockers Deer Tick return to the Marquee Ballroom on FRIDAY, JULY 11, 2014.
Providence, Rhode Island-based John McCauley and his band-mates in Deer Tick, Ian O’Neil, Chris Ryan, Rob Crowell and Dennis Ryan, have long walked a tightwire between total despair and fractured resilience.
Recording their latest release, Negativity, in Portland, Oregon with legendary producer/musician Steve Berlin (The Blasters, Los Lobos, and last year’s McCauley side project, Diamond Rugs), the album –Deer Tick’s fifth full-length studio release, and follow-up to 2011’s acclaimed Divine Providence – is McCauley’s most personal work thus far as well as the band’s most undeniable and universal, their famously freewheeling musical approach refined here into a gloriously cohesive whole. Heartbreaking, fist-pumping, and ultimately life-affirming, Negativity stands as an indisputable high water mark for Deer Tick – a defining collection from a rock ‘n’ roll band driven by an undying faith in the power of redemption and transcendence.
With their catalogue spanning from rock ’n’ roll to country soul and back to bar band blues, Deer Tick continues to sound as sure-footed as one would expect from a band who have spent a couple of hundred nights each year on stage for more than half a decade.
