Deer Tick have announced tour dates in support of Mayonnaise, their forthcoming compilation album comprising covers, outtakes, alternate takes and new originals.
The 17-date tour begins April and includes a stop at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium alongside Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real and another at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater with Trampled by Turtles. Singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews will be joining the indie-rock group as an opening act on most dates.
Mayonnaise comes two years after the group’s double-album release (Vol. 1 and Vol. 2) in 2017.
“I don’t feel like I’m at a place in my life where I’m ready to tell my own life story,” singer John McCauley told Rolling Stone last year. “I’m going to wait until I’m old and have a lot of spare time.”
To coincide with the tour announcement, the group has shared two new tracks — a Nirvana-influenced original titled “Bluesboy’ (with an accompanying video filmed at a recent house show in Providence) and the ballad “Too Sensitive For This World,” a cover of singer-songwriter Ben Vaughn. These songs follow the band’s recent release of their George Harrison cover of “Run of the Mill” and the accompanying original “Hey! Yeah!”
