It’s already been quite the year for the members of Deer Tick, as the band was part of a free-wheeling tour with lead singer John McCauley’s side-project Middle Brother. Throw in an acoustic duo tour, a handful of shows as Deervana, as well as a number of festival appearances and headlining gigs, and most bands might consider taking the rest of the year off. Well, that would be most bands, but if you’re John McCauley & Co. the remainder of 2011 will keep them just as busy.
Deer Tick will release Divine Providence, their fourth studio album in five years, on October 25. The band, who put on rowdy, raucous and off the cuff live shows, have lined up a 34-date cross-country tour in support of the record, which kicks off with a two-night, hometown stand at The Met in Providence, RI on October 12 and 13.
