Hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, Deer Tick have a new album on the way in October called Divine Providence, and they will be here to start out the Labor Day Weekend right, with a Free At Noon concert on September 2, 2011!

Deer Tick Complete with strings, drums, guitars, and bass, Deer Tick is a self-described rock-rock-rock outfit with a little something more--a twist of alt-country and gritty blues, as demonstrated on their 2010 studio album, The Black Dirt Sessions. With their serious music and humorous on-stage banter, these five young musicians have one goal: to rock across the continent.
