    Pro-tip: never name your band after a particularly nasty pest if you want it to be Googled. That is, unless your band is particularly awesome at what you do. Deer Tick has that mojo to back up being named after an annoying parasite... the songs definitely stick on you, but they don't suck your blood. Then again, vampires are all the rage these days. What a weird way of talking about this very great band!

    This track is the first preview of The Black Dirt Sessions, the so-called "very personal" set of songs recorded by the band late last year at Black Dirt Studios in upstate New York. The song, "20 Miles", certainly backs up the claim that the album will be more intense and introspective, with the exploration of themes like mortality and loss. They'll be previewing more as they hit the road, with a bunch of US dates including stints at Coachella and Lollapalooza. Make sure to wear long pants while traveling in high grass.

    The Black Dirt Sessions drops on 6/8. MP3 below. -joe puglisi
