#TBT May 28th, 2011 – Titus Andronicus ( +@ ) performing live at BOMB Fest, Hartford, CT #FourYearsAgoToday We had a tire blow out on the way to the event, only to be assisted by a mechanic who had been driving behind us – he saw the whole thing and told us his name was Angel. Yes, it's all true! After our set, I took a nap in the van, only to wake up and realize I had slept through almost the whole =w= set – I made it back to the cavernous amphitheater in time to hear them play "Paranoid Android" (by Radiohead) and "Buddy Holly" (by =w=) and then we all went home +@
Whenever Titus Andronicus releases a new album, you should stop what you’re doing and listen to it immediately. Now, stop what you’re doing and listen to Titus Andronicus’ The Most Lamentable Tragedy. The album isn’t due out until July 28, but can be found streaming below via NPR.
The group’s fourth LP and follow-up to 2012’s Local Business is unlike anything they’ve done in the past. The Most Lamentable Tragedy is a 29-song rock opera that will take up 98 minutes of your life and change it forever. The album includes guest features from Owen Pallett, members of The So So Glos, Baked, and Lost Boy. Once the first single from TMLT, “Dimed Out,” was released, you could tell it was going to be a special album. Then, Patrick Stickles and crew followed that up with “Fatal Flaw,” “Fired Up,” and their 15-minute short film “The Magic Morning.” Seems like a lot of songs to release before the album comes out, but this is a 29-song rock opera.
