Last month, the great Jersey punkers Titus Andronicus announced the impending release of Local Business, their third album. And this morning, they’re hitting us with a lyric video for the album track “In A Big City,” a hearty and triumphant anthem about provincial alienation. Usually, lyric videos are pretty pointless, but Patrick Stickles actually writes words worth parsing. And the song itself has me very, very excited about Local Business — like, even more than I already was. Check it out below.
Local Business is out 10/23 on XL. My friend Nolen Strahls, the former Double Dagger frontman who now leads the band Pure Junk, designed the cover art.
