Deer Tick share second single from Negativity, tour (2013)

Deer Tick are sharing the second single off their forthcoming new record Negativity (out September 24), “The Dreams In The Ditch,” today via Rolling Stone. They have also confirmed a lengthy run of fall headlining tour dates.  The full list of dates is below.
Negativity was penned over the course of a genuinely eventful 2012, an annus horribilus in which John McCauley’s father pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiracy and tax fraud, ultimately leading to a prison sentence. As if that weren’t enough, McCauley’s wedding engagement collapsed under the weight of his own excessive behavior and impossible lifestyle. Like any true artist, McCauley channeled his anger, sadness, and regret into his work, resulting in what can be safely declared his finest collection of songs to date, impassioned and interior and increasingly mature, both as expression of emotion as well as pure unadulterated songcraft.
