Poker, cigars, beer, and honesty. Today’s episode of the Rock it Out! Blog features a conversation with the band Deer Tick that takes place around a poker table at Sami’s apartment. While playing, the guys give up the scoop on their forthcoming album, Negativity, and explain why it’s the best record they’ve ever written. They also discussed the one time they played a festival with Papa Roach, how they’re planning to make themselves an even bigger band, and the sweet science of putting together a playlist before they hit the stage.
