No, not the nasty little critters that can transmit Lyme Disease. Deer Tick is a Rhode Island band lead by singer-songwriter John McCauley III. The dirty folk, country and blues fusion with a grunge influence they perform has received high praise from the likes of Brooklyn Vegan and John Pareles of the New York Times. Partisan records recently re-released their debut War Elephant in November and are set to issue their next album Born on Flag Day later this year. Deer Tick is out now on a massive tour, most notably through our area with Jason Isbell and Phosporescent. They have also been putting together a documentary with director Cory W. Lovell titled "To the City of Sin!", filmed during their 2008 tour. Check out the trailer and single Long Time below.
