Following their weekend residency as Newport Folk Festival's house band, Deer Tick shot down to Manhattan to perform for the Baeble crew in our backyard. The Providence locals hosted and headlined the festival's three consecutive after parties at the Newport Blues Cafe, and on the third evening, the group performed their forthcoming studio record Negativity in its entirety. The following day, frontman John McCauley told us that he couldn't wait until September 23rd, which would be the eve of the album's release. Fast forward a month and a half, and here we all are today, session video in tow, with the impending release of their superb, fifth record less than 24 hours away.
We're thrilled to share with you this exclusive session featuring McCauley, alongside guitarist Ian O'Neil, who break through the summer's haze to strum three of Negativity's stand-out tracks, "The Dream's In The Ditch", "Just Friends", and "In Our Time".
