Deer Tick, formed in Providence, Rhode Island, in 2004, quickly gained a reputation for their raucous live performances and relentless touring schedule. In their early years, the band averaged 250 shows a year. Although they tour less frequently now, Deer Tick remains a powerhouse in the alternative country rock scene with eight studio albums under their belt.

Their most recent album, Emotional Contracts, was released last summer. It struck a balance between the band’s signature high-energy sound and deeper themes reflecting the journey of getting older. The recording process for this album was noted for its collaborative nature, reflecting the close bond among the band members.

McCauley’s solo performance at Barrelhouse Ballroom offers a unique opportunity to see one of the driving forces behind Deer Tick in a more personal setting.

For Chattanooga locals, the return of Deer Tick in any form is a nod to their memorable performance at the Nightfall Concert Series in 2012.

Opening for McCauley on this tour is T. Hardy Morris, founder and frontman of the Athens, Georgia-based band Dead Confederate until they disbanded in 2015, and a current member of Diamond Rugs.

Morris released The Digital Age of Rome in 2021, an album featuring musical contributions from Faye Webster, Drive-by Truckers’ Brad Morgan, and pedal steel wizard Matt “Pistol” Stoessel.
