Straight into a Storm—Deer Tick

Straight Into A Storm centers on Deer Tick’s 10th anniversary run in New York City. It is a portrait of a hard-rocking band known for their substance-fuelled live performances on their journey to become one of the great cult rock bands of our time. The film weaves in and out of time over the past decade, utilizing never-before-seen archive footage from their booze-drenched early days to their headliner success. “Deer Tick make rock ‘n’ roll that’s as American as apple pie, canned beer, and pickup trucks. But don’t mistake the Providence band’s heartland sound for flag-hoisting faux country—they’ve got both smarts and soul, and front man John McCauley’s whiskey-soaked voice is wise beyond his years.”—The Mercury.
