Titus Andronicus Announce Live Album ‘S​+​@​dium Rock : Five Nights At The Opera

New Jersey DIY punks Titus Andronicus had one of last year’s best albums in their behemoth rock opera opus The Most Lamentable Tragedy. For the release of the triple LP, the Jersey five-piece sold out five consecutive shows, one for each act of the opera, at the tight, legendary Brooklyn DIY quarters of Shea Stadium. It was the first time in NYC history that any band sold out the same DIY venue five nights running. Today, +@ invites their fans to revisit that historic run with the announcement of their live album S+@dium Rock: Five Nights At The Opera.

The A-side to S+@dium Rock revisits some of TMLT’s standouts in a much more concise form, stripping the studio embellishments with a more raw, passionate sound prevailing. The B-side offers electric arrangements of the mostly acoustic fifth act of TMLT, and debuts the previously unreleased album outtake “69 Stones.”

As a taste of what’s on the album, the band has shared an official video for “I Lost My Mind”/”Fatal Flaw” from their Shea Stadium run. Watch below.

01 “Dimed Out”
