Titus Andronicus’ Next Album Will Be a 30-Song Rock Opera

Expect big things from Titus Andronicus’ next album. In an interview with Missoulian (via Pitchfork), frontman Patrick Stickles indicated that their next album will be rather ambitious. He says it will be a, “fictional, multi-act rock opera including 30-odd songs and at least one film.”

The plot is inspired in part by Nietzsche’s “The Birth of Tragedy,” and “Touched with Fire,” psychologist Kay Redfield Jamison’s book on how manic depression relates to the artistic temperament. There’s a guy who is going through depression, until he meets a doppelganger who reveals that he is a part of an acient race of humans

It all sounds very wildy entertaining and interesting. For the rest of the details, you should check out the piece over at the Missoulian.

By now, we all know to trust whatever Stickles and the rest of Titus Andronicus do. We just have to be patient.

Titus Andronicus have released another song from their new album, Local Business. It’s called “Still Life with Hot Deuce and Silver Platter.”  The band are in their comfort zone here, sounding like a very rootsy New Jersey rock band, which as we know, totally works for them.

Frontman Patrick Stickles is aware about the album leaking online, but is still going about his local business, all the ame. As seen in today’s post on their blog:

Hello friends. I invite you this morning to join me on a flight of fancy, wherein we will pretend that the forthcoming Titus Andronicus LP “Local Business” has not leaked onto the internet, and that you are still frothing with anticipation as to what it could possibly sound like. Well, froth no longer, dear friends, as it is now our pleasure to share with you the second track from said LP, “Still Life with Hot Deuce and Silver Platter.” BEHOLD!

Take a listen below.

Hear the first single “In A Big City” right here.

[new]: Titus Andronicus – In A Big City

By Will Oliver, September 18th 2012 — with 2 comments

Titus Andronicus are back. Today on their blog they shared a new song titled “In A Big City”. It’s off their upcoming new album, Local Business, which comes out October 22 via XL Recordings.

“In A Big City” is a contained affair from the band, who still bring the New Jersey-guitar feel, just in a less blitzkrieg manner. It’s a quality single, and it comes with a really random lyric video.

Listen/watch below.

Titus Andronicus Playing At Binghamton University (Win Free Entry)

By Will Oliver, April 28th 2011 — with 1 comment

Concerts here at Binghamton can be very hit or miss. For instance, we got Taking Back Sunday for our spring fling concert next week (buzzkill, much?). Last year we had Girl Talk (awesome). The year before that? Eve 6 (yikes). Gotta love being on New York state’s budge. Thankfully, I’m a part of the wonderful Binghamton Underground Music Presents, who try and balance things out.

Next Thursday Titus Andronicus will be playing at Binghamton University’s Mandela Room, for the amazing price of $5. Support comes from River City Extension & The Jean Jackets (who come from Old Tappan/Ridgewood – which is really close to my hometown). For $5, this is quite a bargain. If you’re a student here at Bing, you better find a way to the Mandela Room next Thursday.

I’m also allowed to give one person free admission to the show. To win, just be the first person to leave a comment. Easy as that.
