Deer Tick & Two Gallants Aus Tour 2013

Deer Tick Two Gallants

Hailing from Rhode Island, Deer Tick have captured their rollicking live sound on their fourth and latest offering Divine Providence with an exuberant romp full of youthful energy, driving alt-country noise, furious punk-influenced bar-rock and reflective blues.

Deer Tick began as a solo project by frontman John McCauley in 2004, a band that varied in size and members through to 2007 when they released their debut album. Now, 8 years on, Deer Tick still sound as wild-spirited as ever.

Two Gallants are alternately explosive and restrained on their aptly titled new album The Bloom and the Blight. Slightly shifting from the San Francisco duo’s folk and blues based past it’s more reflective of their ferocious live shows.

“Our past albums have been a lot more folk and blues-based, and I tried to move away from that to some extent,” Stephens says of the band’s fresh direction, “I wanted to find a rawness in the music and take us back where we’d come from, from punk rock and grunge in particular, to our childhood, in some ways.”

Friends since they were 5, Adam Stephens (guitar/harmonica/vocals) and Tyson Vogel (drums/vocals) have captured the sound of a new beginning. The Bloom and the Blight celebrates the band’s much anticipated reunion following a multi-year break. It’s a meditation on past and present – melodic fury matched with the eloquent, confessional lyricism that has made Two Gallants an enduring favourite of both fans and critics.

In this rare double billing, Deer Tick and Two Gallants acclaimed live shows in such intimate venues are not to be missed.

Each on their first visit to Australian shores, Love Police Touring present the dates listed below.
