PUNK IS BACK
Hello friends. By now, you’ve all heard about the forthcoming third Titus Andronicus LP, “Local Business,” coming October 22nd from our friends at XL Recordings. You may be wondering though, as is sensible to wonder when it comes to recorded music, what does it sound like? Well, wonder no longer, as it is our pleasure to now share with you the first single, “In A Big City,” with the lyrics embedded for you to follow along with.
For those of you who would prefer to judge a record by its cover, well, we are prepared to accommodate you too. Here it is in all of its glory, courtesy of our good friend Nolen Strals, formerly of Double Dagger and lately of the new band Pure Junk.
By now, you have surely been whipped into such a state of feverish anticipation that you just can’t wait to get yr hands on the thing. That is now easier than ever, as the good people at XL Recordings are now taking pre-orders here. Okay, that is a lot to process, but continue to watch this space, as we will have more pertinent information to reveal to you in the coming days. Stay tuned!
Dear friends, this is just to say that October 23rd will see the release of the third Titus Andronicus album titled Local Business via XL Recordings. A nationwide US tour will follow the albums release, dates TBA.
While the first two albums were elaborate concoctions, Local Business is of the earth. Titus Andronicus the studious recording project and Titus Andronicus the raucous touring machine are no longer two distinct beings; there is only Titus Andronicus, rock and roll band. This is to say, it was recorded primarily live with precious few overdubs, with an elite squad of musicians.
The lineup is: Patrick Stickles (singer/songwriter/guitarist), Eric Harm (drums), Julian Veronesi (bass), Liam Betson (guitar) and Adam Reich (guitar). The album was recorded in New Paltz, New York’s Marcata Recording with producer/engineer/mastermind Kevin McMahon. They recorded it in April and May of 2012 along with some special guests including longtime Titus session keyboardist Elio DeLuca, universally acclaimed violinist Owen Pallett, and Eric Harm’s father Steven on harmonica. This tight-knit group is just one of the meanings behind the phrase “Local Business”.
While abandoning the linear narrative of their last album The Monitor, the songs on Local Business aim to make explicit the implications of the first two LPs, that the inherent meaninglessness of life in an absurd universe gives the individual power to create their own values and their own morality. Along the way, we witness a devastating automobile wreck, a food fight (that is to say, a battle with an eating disorder), an electrocution, a descent into insanity, and ultimately, a forgiveness of the self for its many faults. Titus Andronicus even finds time to broaden its emotional palette to include moments of pure positivity, brief respites from the usual doom and gloom.
In case you were wondering, here is the track listing.
1. Ecce Homo
2. Still Life With Hot Deuce And Silver Platter
3. Upon Viewing Oregon’s Landscape With The Flood Of Detritus
4. Food Fight!
5. My Eating Disorder
6. Titus Andronicus VS. The Absurd Universe (3rd Round KO)
7. In A Big City
8. In A Small Body
9. (I Am The) Electric Man
10. Tried To Quit Smoking
More information will be forthcoming, such as the cover art, subsequent tour dates, and all that other good stuff. We thank you for yr continued interest.
Very sincerely yrs,
P.S. Sneak previews of some of these songs may be found earlier in this Tumblr, via live videos. Further questions may be administered via twitter @titus_ndronicus.
All will be revealed, and soon.
