Deer Tick Confirms US Tour Dates


Partisan Records is excited to announce the first leg of tour dates in support of the band’s soon-to-be released new record, Divine Providence. Besides an appearance at Bestfest in Houston, TX, on September 25, the tour blasts off with two hometown shows at The Met in Providence, RI, and then winds its way around the country, culminating with a performance at New York’s Webster Hall on November 20. A full list of dates is below.

Divine Providence, to be released on October 25, was produced by the band along with Adam Landry and Justin Collins, who were also at the helm for lead singer, main songwriter John McCauley’s highly acclaimed side project, Middle Brother. Deer Tick’s live shows and McCauley’s overall stage aesthetic fueled his desire to create the raw and spontaneous kerosene blaze that is Divine Providence. While the break-neck speed and damn-it-all fury could give one the sense that it all may fall apart in an instant, Deer Tick never loses sight of the song. It is insanity, but there’s obviously a plan in place.

The album is the Rhode Island quintet’s fourth album in just five years, and is the first one the band has recorded in their home state. It’s a follow-up to their fantastic Black Dirt Sessions, that New York magazine called “flat-out great,” and inspired the Late Show with David Letterman to give the band its network television debut. The new record features for the first time lead vocal turns on a couple of songs by guitarist Ian O’Neil and drummer Dennis Ryan.
