Deer Tick Brings Its ‘Confessional’ Songs To Boston Music Festival
The band Deer Tick formed in Providence in 2004, led by then-teenage singer-songwriter John McCauley. Its music has often been described as alternative country, but that label hardly captures the band’s musical range or tremendous evolution — from a turnover of bandmates to the development of a more raucous, rock-based sound.
And, now, a return to a very personal, soulful and sometimes dark place with Deer Tick’s forthcoming album, Negativity, scheduled for release Sept. 24.
