Deer Tick's alt-country sound takes on a darker, almost punk edge in their new album. Its title, Negativity, is both a warning and a lure. While the record doesn’t drop until Sept 24, the band recently premiered its first single, “The Curtain." It’s stripped down, but that minimalism engenders a huge sound, all propelled by the crunch of a bluesy and melodic slide guitar riff. 


Deer Tick plays Brooklyn Bowl on Friday, September 13, where they will perform Nirvana’s In Utero in its entirety. The band also plays Detroit’s Majestic Theatre on Friday, October 11.
