Recent signer to Partisan Records, Deer Tick will get its brilliant debut War Elephant reissued on November 25.
Deer Tick is the one man folk band creation of John McCauley, who wrote an album beyond his years at the tender age of 20. McCauley is also a cousin to Matthew McConaughey, which probably comes in handy.
The re-issue of War Elephant will feature new artwork, so if you are among the lucky few who copped the original pressing, hold on to that bad boy. It could be worth buku cash flow or just be a neat-o keepsake. This re-issue also marks the first time Deer Tick is available on vinyl.
Following the re-issue Partisan Records will release a full length album of pre-War Elephant material.
Be sure to check out Deer Tick's fantastic Daytrotter session and his cover of Sean Kingston's “Beautiful Girls” for further proof that Deer Tick is cooler than his cousin.
