Deer Tick – “White Havoc” (Stereogum Premiere)

It’s December 1, which means that we have officially entered the Holiday Season and can prepare ourselves for the onslaught of sometimes awesome but mostly terrible Christmas songs that will be blaring from the speakers of shopping malls across the country. We’ve heard a few good new jingles, most notable Liz Phair’s “Ho Ho Ho,” and today Deer Tick offered up their charming new seasonal track. “White Havoc” will be released on the second annual Converse Rubber Tracks Noise To The World compilation. Dum Dum Girls, GRMLN, and Iamsu! among others also contributed to the album. Deer Tick celebrates their 10th anniversary this year and will be hosting a six-night residency at the Brooklyn Bowl covering classic albums. Listen to “White Havoc” below along with GRMLN’s contribution “Before December (You’re Alive).”
