If you didn’t catch the premiere of Providence, RI-based Deer Tick‘s new video for “Main Street” on MTV last week, don’t worry—the band has released the unedited version on YouTube. Get ready for your fill of exploding fireworks, unsuccessful attempts to put out fires with urine and the rock ‘n’ roll-style destruction of the band’s equipment.
The band worked with director Colin Devin Moore to make the video, which serves as an ode to Deer Tick’s notoriously raw and raucous live shows. John McCauley’s raspy, Cobain-inspired vocals along with loftily strummed guitar chords and smashing cymbals make for a beer-spilling, bar-fighting anthem that most likely really would result in a night of destroyed instruments in the boys’ hometown.
Having just about finished up a U.S. tour in support of Divine Providence (Partisan), Deer Tick has also announced a New Year’s Eve show at Brooklyn Bowl with J Roddy Walston And The Business, Dead Confederate and Virgin Forest.
Tour Dates For Deer Tick:
12/07 – Brooklyn, NY – Glasslands Gallery *
12/31 – Brooklyn, NY – Brooklyn Bowl
* Ian O’Neil solo perfomance with Virgin Forest
