RIYL: The Hold Steady, Fucked Up, Deer Tick

Label: Merge Records

I keep hearing the words “Titus Andronicus are back” anytime this band of Jersey misfits make a new record.  I mean…Did they ever leave?  Since they sprang into the musical landscape like a starving coyote in 2005, they’ve been an everpresent force in the evolving punk rock ethos of the aughts and beyond.  As feral as the bloody and bruised early 80s hardcore scene, but as uplifting and life-affirming as the most legendary Bruce Springsteen sets, Titus Andronicus make music when they have something that needs to be said.  And we’re still listening.

An Obelisk marks their 6th record, a quick follow-up to 2018’s A Productive Cough, and if the first single is any indication of what to expect, it’s gonna be a fast and bumpy ride.  Produced by Bob Mould, this has the potential to be one of the most important rock albums of the year.  Bend an ear to the Dylan-inspired music video for (I Blame) Society and grab a copy of the ‘Peak’ vinyl colorway after the ‘buy’ link.
