Four years post-Negativity, Rhode Island’s favorite hometown rockers have wrapped up two distinct albums. The acoustic Deer Tick Vol. 1 and garage rock Deer Tick Vol. 2 are slated for a September 15 release.

According to a press announcement, “The two albums complement each other yet reflect completely contrasting styles, both of which accurately represent the two distinctive musical personalities of Deer Tick — quiet and thoughtful/loud and raucous.”

Partisan released two videos today to celebrate. The visuals are weird, which is to be expected.

Here’s “Sea Of Clouds” from Vol. 1:

And here’s “It’s a Whale” from Vol. 2:

If you’d hoped to catch the band at the Newport Folk Festival after-parties or the O-Mist bash in July, you’re outta luck; tickets sold out quick. But Deer Tick is playing the Levitate Music Festival in Marshfield, Mass. — with the likes of Dispatch, Umphreys McGee and Ziggy Marley — and two-day passes are still available. Learn more here.

Also worth mentioning: For the right amount with your pre-order, you can cash in on a personalized Deer Tick voicemail ($75); a PawSox game with the band ($250); or a Grand Canyon Railway Experience (!!!) with frontman John McCauley ($1,000).
