Ceremony – “Everything Burns”

Cali punks Ceremony already made a ridiculously fun album this year with Zoo, and now they're teaming up with Titus Andronicus for a massive fall tour, which would be the punk rock tour of the year if Titus hadn't already toured with Screaming Females. Both bands are also hooking up for a super-limited new… More »

Titus Andronicus – “In A Big City”

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… More »

Titus Andronicus Local Business Details

Hard to believe we've been listening to Titus Andronicus's outstanding The Monitor for more than two years now. And yeah, the band has kept us (and themselves) occupied covering everyone from X-Ray Spex to Lana Del Rey, but that's no substitute for a new album. Well, it appears that wait is very… More »

Dinowalrus – “Happy” (Feat. Patrick Stickles) (Rolling Stones Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

For no particular reason, the Brooklyn trio Dinowalrus have corralled a buddy of theirs, Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles, into helping them out on a cover of the Rolling Stones classic Exile On Main Street rave-up "Happy." Their version is sloppy, drunk, and fun, as a Rolling Stones cover ideally should be. Download it… More »

Titus Andronicus – “Oh Bondage! Up Yours!” (X-Ray Spex Cover)

Permanent Wave is a new benefit tribute compilation dedicated to the legendarily unhinged first-wave British punk band X-Ray Spex. On the compilation, Titus Andronicus reunite with Amy Klein, who left the band last year, to cover "Oh Bondage! Up Yours," the best-known X-Ray Spex track, with Klein, whose feminist collective Permanent Wave spearheaded… More »

Download Titus Andronicus LLC Mixtape Vol 1

When they played SXSW last week, Titus Andronicus announced that they'd brought something extra with them: A CDR mixtape, limited to 200 copies, that collected a whole bunch of the band's random rarities, demos, live tracks and covers. (Mine was copy #36.) Someone must've realized that this wasn't the most efficient way to get… More »

Titus Andronicus – “Ecce Homo” & “Still Life with Hot Deuce AND Silver Platter”

Titus Andronicus seems to be back in the swing, debuting some new songs on WFMU and on the road. Titus's Twitter pointed to a live clip from the 3/4 Asbury Park show at the Stone Pony which features a medley of two new songs, allegedly titled "Ecce Homo" and "Still Life with Hot… More »

Titus Andronicus – “Upon Viewing Oregon’s Landscape With The Flood Of Detritus”

Last night, Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles appeared on Tom Scharpling's The Best Show marathon on WFMU to premiere the band's new single allegedly called "Upon Viewing Oregon’s Landscape With The Flood Of Detritus." Scroll to 2:37:00 mark of the show archive to hear the rollicking jam. Stickles also played a new… More »

20 Songs Named After The Bands That Played Them

Self-titled albums are one thing. But when a band names one of its songs after itself -- or, alternately, when a band names itself after one of its songs -- it's a pretty big deal. The song itself comes off looking something like a mission statement, an encapsulation of everything that the band means. Whe… More »

Patrick Stickles Covers “Video Games”

The latest aboard the "Video Games" cover bandwagon is Titus Andronicus' now-beardless (!!!) Patrick Stickles, who recorded the cover in his parent's living room earlier today. Does the fact that it's not at all punk as fuck -- he plays a piano and warbles during his rendition -- make it punk a… More »

Titus Andronicus Cover Coldplay

A couple of months ago, we posted a list of the 10 best Coldplay covers. That list is safe. New Jersey punk rock champions Titus Andronicus recently posted an intentionally ramshackle, lo-fi cover of "In My Place" on Twitter, and holy god this thing is awful. It's awful on purpose, but it's still… More »

Titus, Ted Leo Playing OWS Benefit Tonight

A few days after the NYPD evicted the Occupy Wall Street camp from Zuccotti Park, and a couple of days after this scandalous bullshit went down at UC Davis, Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles has organized a last-minute benefit show that goes down tonight at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn. The show will feature Titus,… More »

Watch Patrick Stickles, Craig Finn, Tommy Ramone Cover “Bastards Of Young”

The all-star tandem of Titus Andronicus' Patrick Stickles, The Hold Steady's Craig Finn, and Tommy Ramone (along with Jesse Malin and Dave Hause) got together a couple of nights ago at Bowery Electric to rip through a cover of the Replacements' "Bastards Of Young." This performance was the grand finale of the NYC premiere… More »

A Trip Through The Kurt Vile/Bank Of America Controversy

This isn't the '90s, and these days no indie bands are getting cards pulled for licensing songs to advertisers. In fact, it's generally accepted that ad-licensing money is one of the few economic things keeping many indie bands afloat. But when it comes to the much-hated Bank Of America, the rules, it seems, change. More »

CMJ 2011: Class Superlatives & Our Finest Photos

We're on the other side of CMJ now, which you could probably tell by the uptick in the music news cycle, or by some bloggers' (could be any bloggers, no way to know who I am talking about) bleary eyes and corresponding level of risibility. Stereogum threw a couple of parties early on,… More »

Amy Klein Quits Titus Andronicus

Just a few days after playing a final show with Titus Andronicus at our CMJ showcase, Amy Klein announced that she was leaving the band to spend more time on her own music projects, which includes the duo Hilly Eye and Amy Klein and the Blue Star Band. She will be exceptionally hard to… More »

CMJ 2011: Stereogum/Popgun Showcase @ Glasslands 10/18/11 Feat. Titus Andronicus, Delicate Steve, Mr. Dream, Cuckoo Chaos, Hollerado

So, CMJ. It's begun. This year we decided to get our shots in early, in some sort of a sado-masochistic attempt to be as lifeless by Sunday as possible, apparently. That means a party last night, and a party tonight. For Tuesday night's bill, we joined forces with Popgun Booking to present NJ wit/punk firebrand… More »

Stereogum CMJ 2011: John Maus, Oneohtrix Point Never Added To Animal Collective DJs, Titus Andronicus, Etc.

UPDATE: We are happy to announce that Four Tet has been added to this bill, and will DJ from 8-9PM (which is precisely the time there will be free vodka). Come early and often. Iceland Airwaves is over, which means it must be time for CMJ. As promised, Stereogum's parties this week… More »

Stereogum CMJ Parties 2011: Titus Andronicus, Animal Collective’s Geologist & Deakin, Twin Sister, More

Next week, NYC's streets will be teeming with a mix of earnest collegiate indie rock aficionados and grizzled music biz veterans. There will be wonderful lineups at all sorts of venues, and if you pick the right show you may just see a band that will be written about on a blog the next day. More »
