Video of the Moment #2763: Titus Andronicus

In the first decade of the 21st century, New Jersey band Titus Andronicus made their name on their brash, devil-may-care rock sound and equally high octane live shows. As time passed, it became increasingly clear that we were watching a band evolving through the trials and tribulations of life. In 2012, they released ‘Local Business’, their third album that was showcased how good a live band they were. In 2015, ‘The Most Lamentable Tragedy’ was released, a five-act opera representing their most ambitious work to date.

In 2018, they will be bringing out their sixth album, ‘A Productive Cough’, on the 2nd of March on Merge Records. They also will be known as from here on out, following in the footsteps of Prince, ‘+@’, though for ease of writing and to avoid any coding issues, we’ll still be calling them Titus Andronicus here on TGTF. Fully admitting that this new LP will be focussing on ballads, they’ve also announced an all-acoustic tour – their first – seeing singer/songwriter and singer Patrick Stickles performing with pianist Alex Molini. The tour is to begin in Kingston, New York, on the 7th of March following the album’s release.

To preview this unprecedented release, the band have released the promo video for ‘Number One (in New York)’, which they’re calling a trailer of sorts for ‘A Productive Cough’. This promo precedes a longer, much more detailed album ‘making of’ documentary set for release on the 26th of February. It’s an exciting period in +@’s career, and we look forward to hearing the album in full in 2 months’ time. Watch the video for ‘Number One (in New York)’ from Titus Andronicus below.
