Deer Tick, the brainchild of Providence, Rhode Island’s John McCauley turned full-on band, has been kicking up some dust in the past few years. With the band’s stunning 2007 debut, War Elephant, reissued in 2008, the 21-year-old has been spreading his Dylanesque howl across the country since he was a teenager. June 23 will see the release of War Elephant‘s follow-up, Born on Flag Day, via Partisan Records. While a 19-year-old McCauley recorded War Elephant on his own, playing every instrument found on the album, Born on Flag Day showcases the sound of a newly assembled full band.

As both a headliner and/or an opening act for the much esteemed Jenny Lewis, an accompanying tour will span much of the country throughout the summer.
