Deer Tick Releases Split 7″ With Jonny Corndawg, On Tour Now

Since the inception of Partisan Records, the label has had the intention of creating a 7″ series to showcase new and talented musicians. These may be artists who are beginning on the road to a long and fruitful career or artists who have remained on the radar but have never had the opportunity to have their music showcased to larger audiences in a physical format.

With that in mind, the label is pleased to announce the Partisan Records Co. 7″ series. These will be vinyl-only releases on high quality vinyl which will be a showcase of new songs from these bands, or doing a split with current artists on the Partisan Records roster.

Officially, this is the second release in the series, with Deer Tick sharing the wax with long time tour companion Jonny Corndawg. A limited pressing of 1000, on two color variations of white and sky blue at 500 per color.

Deer Tick offers the fan-favorite ZZ Top cover “Cheap Sunglasses” while Corndawg gives fans a taste of his upcoming studio album with “Chevy Beretta” and “Nightrider”. These will only be available on the bands respective tours and in the Partisan webstore.

“Deer Tick’s front man, John McCauley (top left), got an early start as a teenage singer-songwriter in Providence, a scene known for genre-busting noise music. But it’s country rock he’s plowed his old soul into, and on his band’s flat-out great forthcoming album, The Black Dirt Sessions, you hear not just heartbreak (“Christ Jesus” alone constitutes an album’s worth) but a hint of the tumbling-down noise of his hometown’s sound-much of it in his aching, ripped-to-shreds voice. Live, the band delivers hellfire.” – New York Magazine

“The best set yet from this still-rising Rhode Island quintet.” – BBC

“The songs are better, too. So good, in fact, they can make you punch the air or pin you to your seat. A giant leap forward.” – The Independent

“It’s hard to put into words what a band like this is now or could become without being too gushy” – CMT
