YouTube Preview ImageDeer Tick- The Rock

Deer Tick has a new tune! The song appears on their upcoming 5th album, ‘Negativity’,  due out September 24th, 2013. Deer Tick’s John McCauley had the following to say about the song:
“The Rock” is a song about being in love with an artist and subsequently having your heart broken by that artist. The silly little metaphors in the song are ‘the rock’ which is the power to destroy your relationship, and ‘the window’ which is the relationship. I like the idea of a breakup being represented by shattering glass.”
