Rhode Island’s Deer Tick have held the ‘most distinctive vocalist’ title for years thanks to their singer John J. McCauley’s raw and unruly voicebox. But now the band’s guitarist and drummer, Ian O’Neil and Dennis Ryan, are giving him a run for his money on this newly released track. Find it on Deer Tick’s upcoming compilation album, Mayonnaise, out February 1st via Partisan Records.

Deer Tick: undercutting expectations since 2004.

“I think a lot of my favorite artists have always done stuff like that,” Deer Tick front man John McCauley says from his home in Nashville, reflecting on his band’s love of unexpected mashups: tender lyrics layered over pissed off guitars; classical music flourishes delivered nearly naked and high. Deer Tick’s perfected it all, mostly as an outlier, revered by a legion of fans, respected by peers, but not part of any one scene. With their highly anticipated new project(s), the previous two albums released simultaneously titled Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol. 2, the crew from Rhode Island prove that their punk-roots rock has only gotten better with age.

McCauley, who is married to Vanessa Carlton and became a dad. The couple’s little girl is now two years old. For the first time ever, Deer Tick––are an all-consuming band known for constant touring and steady artistic output.

When the band came back together for their beloved after-party shows at the Newport Folk Festival, the reunion reminded them what they missed about creating with one another. “Playing that week with the guys made me really want to do it––it made everyone want to do it,” McCauley says. “So we started making some plans to go in the studio to reord agan.
