Titus Andronicus announce new album 'An Obelisk'

Despite only releasing their last studio album 'A Productive Cough' around this time last year, Titus Andronicus have now announced their plans for a new studio LP to arrive in the coming months.

The new full-length 'An Obelisk' was produced by Hüsker Dü’s Bob Mould at Steve Albini’s Chicago studio Electrical Audio, will feature the newly unveiled lead single '(I Blame) Society', and is due to be released on the 21st June via Merge Records.

Speaking about their new release, the band’s Patrick Stickles added, “The ideology of ‘punk’ supports the elevation of our own interior authority and the degradation of exterior authority, which we recognise to be arbitrary, a tool by which the many are subjugated under the few. While the common ‘punk rocker’ will take this as license to piss on the street and generally pursue a lifestyle of nihilistic hedonism, the true ‘punk’ will recognise the price of this freedom. ‘An Obelisk’ tells the story of one particular individual, someone maybe a lot like you but certainly a lot like me, scouring linty pockets, trying to pay that bill.”
