Close Out Your Weekend with Titus Andronicus

November 30th, 2012

Since forming in 2005, indie punkers Titus Andronicus have earned comparisons to Bruce Springsteen, Bright Eyes and the Pixies. Rolling Stone has even gone as far as to say they “may be the most ambitious punk band in America.” Not too shabby, right? Following the release of their second album, the much-praised The Monitor, the five-piece went through some lineup changes. But now they’ve returned with an equally ambitious third LP, Local Business (stream it below). The new tunes were all road tested earlier in the year before Titus Andronicus (above, doing “In a Big City” for Pitchfork TV) headed to New Paltz, N.Y., to recreate their high-energy stage act in the studio. And now you can see them live
at Webster Hall on Sunday night.
