Deer Tick have revealed the video for “Big House” off their album Negativity, which was released in September 2013. Lead singer John McCauley wrote “Big House” in dedication to a friend’s battle with heroin. “He’s always relapsing and going back to rehab. It’s a terrible cycle” says McCauley. The bluesy, heartfelt ballad is one of many soulful, Americana anthems found on Negativity and one of the band’s most personal. Take a listen and don’t do drugs please.
On another note, congratulations are in order to John McCauley who wed Vanessa Carlton nearly a month ago with Stevie Nicks doing the honors (hello, jealousy).
