    Watch a Pair of Exclusive Deer Tick Live Videos

    According to John McCauley, Deer Tick have always had a greater affinity for punks than folkies. Nursing a midday vodka tonic on the patio of Jackson's, a trendy bar in Nashville's Hillsboro Village, the shaggy 25-year-old frontman and recent Tennessee transplant recalls the time in 2009 when his group almost got booted off a tour with Neko Case for spilling a drink onstage. "We like to trash green rooms and break stuff and pour beer on the crowd," he says with a smile. While Deer Tick's previous three ?albums could be filed under the alt-country banner, their latest, Divine Providence (Partisan), resists hyphenation. "This is a rock'n'roll record," ?explains McCauley.
