"Main Street," the first single from Deer Tick's new album, Divine Providence,
finds the Rhode Island rockers hitting a comfortable sweet spot where
the romantic rhythms of girl-group pop, the raspy punk of Nirvana and
the rootsy, blue-collar poetry of Bruce Springsteen all blend together
into something fresh and new. "This song is about quitting
drugs and not wanting to grow up," said frontman John McCauley. "I wrote
it in one sitting to spite one of my closest friends." Divine Providence will hit stores on October 25th, but you can stream "Main Street" today.
