Reflecting on 10 years as a band, Deer Tick have announced a new documentary entitled Straight Into A Storm.

Straight Into a Storm, tells the story of how the band Deer Tick, fronted by John McCauley, surfed the waves and tempests of the rock & roll life to accumulate a diehard fan base and a cultish identity that has kept them on the road for well over a decade. With never-before-seen archival footage, interviews with friends like Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith and plenty of live shots to bring to life Deer Tick’s lengthy story.The film – directed by William Miller focuses on the band’s history as well as their 10-year anniversary run at Brooklyn Bowl over New Year’s 2014.

The film also shows how vital the band dynamic – now including Ian O’Neil, Chris Ryan and Dennis Ryan – is to Deer Tick’s sound.

“Our 10-year anniversary shows were a celebration for our fans and for us,” the band said in an official statement. “It was a lot of work, but also a blast! William Miller was there every night to capture that spirit. We’re proud and excited for his film to get an official release and proper distribution by partnering with Abramorama.”

On their last set of records, Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol. 2, the Nashville-based, Rhode Island-bred band made peace with their dual sides: one acoustic and one electric, it showcased the breadth of their range and their ability to hop from somber folk one moment to raucous, sweaty punk the next.

Straight Into A Storm will debut at New York City’s Roxy Cinema Tribeca, followed by a Q+A from the band and a concert cruise around Manhattan.
