Biography

Ladies and gentlemen…

From the band that’s been both accurately and inaccurately labeled just about everything this side of Top 40 comes a true-to-form rock-n-roll record. Scratch that, true-to-form is not Deer Tick‘s style. Let’s start over…

Naturally, after so many years of critics praising [and making fun of] them for their “folk” and ... Read more in Amazon's Deer Tick Store

Editorial Reviews

Deer Tick's highly anticipated second full-length, and follow-up to the band's acclaimed debut War Elephant (reissued in 2008 by Partisan Records)! This release follows two years of extensive touring in sold-out clubs across around the world. Unlike War Elephant, the album features the three new members of Deer Tick that principal songwriter John J. McCauley III recruited to form the current incarnation, and reflects a natural evolution from a singular vision of one songwriter to something greater.

This is one of those albums that keeps getting better every time you listen to it.
Nicholas Henscheid
Some people might not be able to get used to the unique voice, however, everybody will love the words and music.
Michael Twardy
I can also say that having had the privilege to see them live they are worth every penny.

I was introduced to Deer Tick through a friend from Providence (the bands hometown)a little over a year ago when they were doing even smaller venues than now, mainly around Boston. They've since been getting great exposure, and deservedly so.

Born on Flag Day is a great listen. Deer Tick doesn't come at you with any revolutionary songs, just great, great music with outstanding, insightful, and creative lyrics. I don't think they are trying to be anything they aren't. They're just writing great songs.

This CD, much like the first, is quite strong overall with a number of amazing, stand-out tracks. For me, those were Easy, Houston-TX, and Smith Hill. I literally can't stop listening to them. There are a number of other 'better than good' songs on here as well, like Song About A Man, Friday the 13th, Little White Lies, The Ghost. We even get a hidden song after Stung (keep listening!). Considering all the songs I just named, that's most of the CD. That's very rare nowadays since most albums have 2 'release' songs and the rest is filler. You won't find that here, nor on their first album, War Elephant.

In what seems to be an era of cookie cutter, radio crap, Deer Tick brings a refreshing sound and some plain old wicked-good tunes. John McCauley has a very unique voice that totally works for his music. Give em a try, you won't regret it. Great album.

Deer Tick has scored on their 2nd CD. War Elephant was the first and recorded when Providences' own John Joseph McCauley III was 21. On the new CD, "Born on Flag Day", Deertick has matured fully. Some people might not be able to get used to the unique voice, however, everybody will love the words and music. Very catchy.

I just caught this americana/folk/alt/country band at the 50th Newport (RI) Folk Festival last week (where they made a few more thousand new fans of all ages). John McCauley & company were the hit of the festival and have shown why they have constant sellouts on their new album. John is an accomplished songwriter & performer, well beyond his years (like Justin Townes Earle) and has knocked out several catchy tunes (my faves are Ghost, Easy, Little White Lies). I guarantee you'll be tapping your foot through all the songs and will be replaying this CD over & over (I'm at around 20 times since I bought it last week). Please catch these guys if they come your way, it will be well worth it.

Wow, really excellent reviews. Several of them make reference to musical genres and even specific groups that I quite like, so I really was looking forward to hearing this. And I'll even grant that the first song was quite catchy. But there's one little detail which I felt I should point out for any of you out there who share my strange quirk of preferring to listen to musicians who can actually sing. You might note that a number of reviews refer to the lead singer as "unique". In this case, at least, that's a code word, and the reality being disguised is that the lead singer's voice is truly, truly grating. Grating to the extent that after a while I felt like I had a cicada lodged in my ear, and I just couldn't listen any more. I'm not advocating for mellow... I could quickly reel off the names of a dozen acts with lead singers whose voices are also unique, many of whom take a while to get used to. I just thought you might find it helpful to be aware that this particular singer may take longer to get used to than I personally feel can be justified by the quality of the songs.

I bought this album on some shady Russian download site, and I loved it. Funny thing is, that version didn't even have all the songs. When I got this vinyl record, and I heard all the songs for the first time, I nearly wept.
I won't buy things online from Shady Russian download sites in the future, unless it's just a heck of a good deal. Which it was. Gosh darn it, was it a good deal. Still though...I feel those dastardly Reds swindled me out of a seven months of listening to this masterpiece. I may play ball with the Ruskies again, but I'll be wary. Lesson learned.

Been listening to this band all year. Excellent stuff!!! This album reminds me a lot of John Prine. A great blend of folk & rock & roll.

Some folks dont like the vocals, I do. I never understand why it gets mediocre reviews.

Great songwriting on this album.
