The boys from the borough are releasing their new full-length album on Oct. 23 and NPR is giving listeners a bit of a sneak preview of Titus Andronicus' latest, Local Business.
"The band can be abrasive, but Local Business is the kindest album [lead singer Patrick] Stickles and company have made," reviewer Jacob Ganz wrote.
"There aren't as many rousing choruses here as on 2010's The Monitor, an album that cast self-sabotage in the aftermath of a failed relationship as a Civil War standoff, complete with faux-antique recordings of quotations about a union tearing itself apart."
Check out the tracks (especially first single "In a Big City") and the brief write-up here.
The band will be having its album release show at Shea Stadium on Oct. 22. Tickets go on sale Tuesday at noon.
Glen Rock "stoner-punk" band Liquor Store will be joining Titus Andronicus on stage. The doors open at 8 p.m. and the show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10.
