Deer Tick to infest the road this fall

on May 28, 2010, 12:05pm

After partying across these United States with Dr. Dog earlier this year, Rhode Island’s Deer Tick is ready to take its new, more subdued album – The Black Dirt Sessions – on another long and windy road.

Highlights for the much-hyped foursome include a headlining slot at New York’s Webster Hall and a spot on the always-star-studded Lollapalooza line-up. (Dear Lord, is this what happens after a band pops Brian Williams’ music-blogging cherry?)

Their quest kicks off in Richmond, Va., and the 23-date voyage will take John J. McCauley’s throwback rasp as far south as Miami. Along the way, the band will also treat Cleveland to new-guitarist Ian O’Neil’s Skynrd-esque shredding at a free show at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on August 11th.

Openers for all dates haven’t been announced, but Georgia’s Dead Confederate will play support on ten dates. Fellow Northeasterners Wye Oak clock in for shows in Philly and D.C, and there’s still no word on whether a one-off Baltimore gig with Dawes will see one-half of McCauley’s super group – MG&V – take the stage.

Tickets for the Webster Hall show are available via Ticketmaster.com. Also be sure to check out this blurry video of McCauley swaying (and sounding) eerily like Kurt Cobain on an electric version of The Black Dirt Sessions’ piano-driven closer, “Christ Jesus”.
