About Deer Tick
Deer Tick is the musical brainchild of John McCauley, who had been a heavyweight
on the singing and songwriting scene for years before forming Deer Tick. McCauley got his start in the early 00s, performing
in various acts including the high school music project Kadaver, Metro Savages, My Other Face and El Toro. His early years
were spent lighting up the local Rhode Island music scene, eventually expanding into the other musical bastions of New England
including Massachusetts and New York. 2005 would bring the band's first nationwide tour, alongside soul rockers Viking Moses.
Deer Tick would perform alongside and be heavily influenced by acts such as Nat Baldwin and Jana Hunter, creating a musical
clique that heavily informed the direction of Deer Tick's music.
With Deer Tick still under the exclusive direction
of McCauley, John would make the move towards a permanent lineup, recruiting New England area musicians and brothers Chris
and Dennis Ryan. Signing under Feow! Records, the band dropped their debut album in 2007 and hit the road touring North America.
They would add one more member to their lineup, guitarist Andrew Tobiassen, and sign onto Baltimore based Partisan Records,
which would lead to the band's biggest flirtation yet with fame and success yet. They would hit the road again in a much anticipated
tour that spanned across all of North America and into Europe, while critical praise and recognition rained in from critics
and fans alike.
By 2010, the band had matured extensively in their songwriting capabilities, honing their music in different
directions as their success took them to new heights. They would make their TV debut with David Letterman on the Late Show,
becoming permanently ingrained into the fabric of the music scene in North America. They would also become staple musicians
in Europe as they becoming one of the most talked about musicians from the isles to the continent. The band would see the
addition of keyboardist Rob Crowell, as well as the sad departure of longtime guitarist Andrew Tobiassen, but nonetheless
retained their signature Americana rock sound.
The band has kept their unique roots across all their recordings, but
constantly push their sound to new limits with each and every release. McCauley has described his music making progress as
being accountable to Deer Tick first, and the rest of the world second. Despite that, the band has acknowledged a huge gap
between their recorded music and their live performances, with the latter aiming more to please crowds than to push musical
The band's debut album War Elephant would drop twice: Once in 2007 on Feow! Records
then as a re release under Partisan Records. The second time around the album would be a huge success, gaining positive critical
acclaim from various critical outlets and launching the band into the global spotlight for the first time. The album would
include heavy country influences and be carried by the addictive tracks "What Kind of Fool Am I?", "Art Isn't Real (City of
Sin)", "Dirty Dishes", and "Ashamed".
The band's follow up would meet the huge expectations lumped upon it, with a crisper
sound and overwhelming praise from critics. The album received eight star ratings from both Clash and PopMatters, and produced
a litany of tracks that have become part of the foundational Deer Tick discography, including "Little White Lies", "The Ghost",
"Stung", and "Easy".
Perhaps their most critically acclaimed success to date, Divine Providence would drop in 2011 as
the band's fourth full length release, venturing farther into the musical mind of frontman McCauley than ever before. The
album picked up favorable reviews from Rolling Stone, SPIN Magazine, Uncut, and Paste, and was a band wide collaborative effort
that spawned the hits "Make Believe", "Electric", "Main Street" and "The Bump".
The band occasionally
performs under the title of Deervana, temporarily becoming a Nirvana cover band. In honor of twenty years since the release
of Nirvana hit In Utero, the band played a tribute show in their honor.
The name Deer Tick comes from McCauley's experience
camping and hiking in the American northeast. The name Deer Tick resonated with him after his first time finding one hiding
in his hair.
