Deer Tick is finally coming out with a new album, Negativity, this fall, the long-awaited follow up to 2011’s Divine Providence. Today, the Rhode Island-based group released a single titled “The Dream’s In The Ditch.”
In an interview with Rolling Stone, bandmember Ian O’Neil said of the new song, “we toured exhaustively leading up to 2013 and it kind of left me and our band feeling hopeless and disheartened. After the song was written, I started to realize that’s what I was writing about: both the despair and resilience you develop as a touring musician and how that can parallel to all of basic situations in the song”.
