Members of Deer Tick, Los Lobos, Dead Confederate, Black Lips and Six Finger Satellite Form New Super Group

Deer Tick’s John J. McCauley III performing at Relix this month

Deer Tick will release their next studio album Divine Providence on October 25 via Partisan Records. But two members of the group are already looking ahead to their new project. Deer Tick’s John J. McCauley III (guitar/vocals) and Rob Crowell (keyboardist/saxophonist) spent time in Nashville, TN last week working on a new studio album with Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin (keyboards/saxophone), Dead Confederate’s Hardy Morris (guitar/vocals), Black Lips’ Ian Saint Pé (guitar) and Six Finger Satellite’s Brian Dufresne (bass/drums). The ensemble recorded 13 tracks for the forthcoming project. No release date is currently available. McCauley is also a member of the “super group” Middle Brother with members of Dawes and Delta Spirit.

Just because all of the members of a band are also in other bands does not make it in any way “super”. Cream was a “super group”. Blind Faith was a super group. The Traveling Wilburys were a super group. Used in this instance, the phrase has lost meaning.

in my new thing and middle brother’s defense, we never claimed to be a super group or even a side project for that matter (i prefer side-by-side project). we’re just bands man!

Now that’s funny. Well played Mr. McCauley. Looking forward to hearing it.
