Country-rock stalwarts, Deer Tick, have released your grandmother’s least favorite Christmas single. Titled “Holy Shit, It’s Christmas,” the Providence, Rhode Island natives bring a much needed kick in the pants to holiday music. This two song single, featuring both the title track and the song “Christmas All Year Long”, is out now on Itunes but can be picked up for free via the Partisan Records website with the purchase of any physical Deer Tick merch.
On the heels of their Christmas single, lead singer/guitarist John McCauley and guitarist Ian O’Neill have released a series of stripped down acoustic shows. McCauley has also added a solo date on December 20th to benefit Invisible Children, a non-profit committed to ending conflict in Uganda.
