Titus Andronicus announce new album on Merge, share new song, playing five Shea Stadium shows (tix on sale)
by Andrew Sacher
Titus Andronicus have been saying for a while now that they're working a 30-song rock opera, and it looks like we may be one step closer to that. They posted an Instagram announcing that they signed to Merge (their last two albums were on XL), and released a new single called "Dimed Out" on Rdio and Spotify. It has Titus injecting some '77 punk vibes and Who-worthy keyboards into their sound, and as you'd expect from them, it's a total anthem. The song comes with the artwork above. Listen below.
UPDATE: As the artwork above hinted, The Most Lamentable Tragedy is the name of the band's new album. It will be out July 28 via Merge. The band also made a lyric video for "Dimed Out" which you can watch below.
Titus also announced five album releases shows to happen at Brooklyn DIY spot Shea Stadium from July 24-28. Tickets are on sale.
