Three months ahead of the album release, you can now stream two of the new songs, including a cover of The Pogues’ ‘White City’.

Praise for ‘Deer Tick Vol. 1’ and ‘Deer Tick Vol. 2’
“…with Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, McCauley solidifies his status as a modern-day barstool poet…throughout both albums, the band varies its rhythms and arrangements with surprising agility.” – Pitchfork
“Vol.1 is raw, introspective and rootsy… Vol.2 is its noisy yang” – Mojo
“Vol 1 is reflective and rootsy… Vol 2 is high-class punk thrash” – Uncut
“…’Deer Tick Vol. 1′ and ‘Vol. 2’ find the Rhode Island roots rockers back and better than ever…Deer Tick’s most optimistic effort yet, a masterclass in newfound maturity not losing what made the band so likeable in the first place.” – Noisey
“If the motive behind putting out two albums with contrasting volumes was intended as a demonstration of ambition and range, well, mission accomplished” – NPR Fresh Air
