Deer Tick is made up of members John J. McCauley III, Christopher Dale Ryan, Dennis Ryan, Ian O’Neil & Rob Crowell. The band originated as a John McCauley solo project in December 2004. Beginning his touring career with the help of Brendon Massei (Viking Moses), McCauley had toured extensively across the United States by the age of 19.

Rather than focus on one particular band or artist, this particular article will highlight some of the latest (or upcoming) releases that have managed to grab my attention recently.

No longer a cult indie favorite, The Avett Brothers have stepped into the limelight by reaching bigger and bigger audiences over the last few years, thanks to their first major label debut I and Love and You. Starting in 2001, this band worked tirelessly to develop a loyal and strong fan base and the fruits of their labor were evident at the Pechanga Resort & Casino on July 23.
NeedToBreathe is excited to join Taylor Swift, as main support on her upcoming “Speak Now” tour beginning May 27th in Omaha, NE. Hand-picked by Taylor, the 19-week tour will see the 4-piece rock band playing songs from their current album The Outsiders, which debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200, along with introducing songs from their upcoming late summer release on Atlantic Records. The band is currently hard at work finishing up the new album in their Charleston, SC studio.
