The Return Of Deer Tick

For the first time in four years much loved MM faves Deer Tick have announced the September 15 release of a long-awaited new album…actually, two. Never a group to stand by conventional protocol, the Providence, RI quartet will release two separate albums of original material, Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol. 2.

Deer Tick Vol. 1 showcases the folk-driven, roots/rock style with just the right amount of grit, that Deer Tick is known for. Lead singer/songwriter John McCauley is a masterful introspective and observational songwriter, who documents inner struggles and external conflicts with a perfect balance of heartfelt sincerity and wry wit.

On Deer Tick Vol. 2, the band turns it up and lets it fly with an injection of punk-inspired garage rock at it’s finest. Clever lyrics, infectious hooks and captivating melodies pack Vol. 2 with bassist Christopher Ryan skillfully laying it down with authority and attitude.

Listen to to the beautiful Sea Of Clouds from Vol. 1 and the rowdy, garage punk-infused It’s A Whale from Vol. 2.

Welcome back boys!

Deer Tick cover the Pogues

On the 4th December Bloodshot Records will celebrate turning 21 with their first six-pack single release, Bloodshot Six Pack to Go: Working Songs for the Drinking Class, a limited edition run of 1,000 and as the title suggests,  all themed around drinking songs.

There are plenty of covers amongst them including JP Harris & the Tough Choices having a go at Merle Haggard’s Drink Up and Be Somebody, Nashville outsider Elizabeth Cook throws down on the Dead Kennedys’ Too Drunk To Fuck, and and bluegrass road warrior Al Scorch delivers a spectacular version of Black Flag’s Six Pack.

Here then is the mighty Deer Tick’s rendition of the Pogues’ classic If I Should Fall From Grace With God.

Order the six-pack here.

 

On July 31, Amazon Music will release Amazon Acoustics, a playlist of cover songs and original music from more than 30 artists.

The latest song to be shared from it is Deer Tick’s Grandfather Song, which was was originally a demo for 2013 album Negativity. While it didn’t make the final cut for the record, John McCauley revisited it recently and finished the song at home in Nashville.

We’re glad he did! Stream it here.

Listen below.
