Deer Tick share "Easy" from upcoming LP!

Once the work only of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist John J. McCauley III, Deer Tick is now a full quartet, and they're back with a new record entitled Born On Flag Day (album art shown), which is set for release on June 23rd. I fell in love with Deer Tick's debut album, War Elephant, just recently, so I'm pumped for new music from one of folk's most talented young songwriters.

The band are offering a new song from the upcoming album, which you can download below. "Easy" is a more racous number than much of what you'll find on War Elephant, and as would be expected, the song has a more full rock sound, which I'm loving. I've got high hopes for Born On Flag Day, and June can't get here soon enough.
