For the first time in four years much loved MM faves Deer Tick have announced the September 15 release of a long-awaited new album…actually, two. Never a group to stand by conventional protocol, the Providence, RI quartet will release two separate albums of original material, Deer Tick Vol. 1 and Deer Tick Vol. 2.
Deer Tick Vol. 1 showcases the folk-driven, roots/rock style with just the right amount of grit, that Deer Tick is known for. Lead singer/songwriter John McCauley is a masterful introspective and observational songwriter, who documents inner struggles and external conflicts with a perfect balance of heartfelt sincerity and wry wit.
On Deer Tick Vol. 2, the band turns it up and lets it fly with an injection of punk-inspired garage rock at it’s finest. Clever lyrics, infectious hooks and captivating melodies pack Vol. 2 with bassist Christopher Ryan skillfully laying it down with authority and attitude.
Listen to to the beautiful Sea Of Clouds from Vol. 1 and the rowdy, garage punk-infused It’s A Whale from Vol. 2.
Welcome back boys!
