Deer Tick fly airplane over Newport Folk Festival to drum up new album attention

With the cover of their latest album, Negativity, to be the above image of an airplane flying with a trail of negative vibes behind it, it only seemed fair that at last weekend's Newport Folk Festival, Deer Tick took the opportunity to recreate history. The day of the festival, the band hosted an image on their Facebook with the simple hashtag #lookup, and later in the day, lo and behold, Amelia Earhart flew above the anticipating crowd with the album announcement.

We shared the first single from the upcoming album, the menacing “The Rock,” and now we've got a second single in the track “The Dream's In The Ditch,” which premiered at Rolling Stone and you can stream below. Deer Tick will be taking their own kinds of airplane (likely a tour bus, you know) on an upcoming fall tour, for which you can find the dates below. Preorder Negativity through Partisan Records and get it flown to your doorstop by September 24. Plane jokes—we got 'em.
