With Christmas fast approaching, acts like Yoko Ono and The Flaming Lips, Los Campesinos!, and Liz Phair have all celebrated the season with festive new music. Now, folk rockers Deer Tick have joined in on the holiday cheer with a new single called “White Havoc”.
With drummer Dennis Ryan taking over vocals, this chime-laden ditty makes a compelling case for a new Christmas classic. Stream and/or download it below (via Stereogum).
“White Havoc” is part of Converse Rubber Tracks’ second-annual Noise To The World holiday compilation, which will be available December 5th. The effort also features contributions from Dum Dum Girls, Iamsu!, and GRMLN.
Continuing their festive mood, Deer Tick will commemorate its 10th anniversary with a special six-night residency later this month at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl.
