Deer Tick announce UK & Ireland tour, Jan 16-23

London – The Garage – Jan 23

Deer Tick have announced a full European tour – with UK and Irish dates taking place from January 16-23 2014. Culminating on Jan 23 2014 with a show at The Garage, London, the UK and Ireland dates follow the release of the eagerly anticipated new album, Negativity – which was released on September 30 2013 via Partisan RecordsNegativity, which Classic Rock calls “soulful Americana with a bittersweet backstory” and Uncut Magazine states “spurts gloriously in all directions”, marks Deer Tick’s fifth full-length studio release, and is the follow-up to 2011’s acclaimed Divine Providence.

Negativity was penned over the course of a genuinely eventful 2012, an annus horribilus in which McCauley’s father pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiracy and tax fraud, ultimately leading to a prison sentence. As if that weren’t enough, McCauley’s wedding engagement collapsed under the weight of his own excessive behaviour and impossible lifestyle. Like any true artist, McCauley channeled his anger, sadness, and regret into his work, resulting in what can be safely declared his finest collection of songs to date, impassioned and interior and increasingly mature, both as expression of emotion as well as pure unadulterated songcraft.

The January shows will be the first chance for The UK and Ireland at large to experience Negativity on the stage. Expect a typically raucous rock show, with the band flaunting new singles The Rock and The Dream’s In The Ditch amongst old favourites.
