Grandiose punk rock band Titus Andronicus will be releasing the live album S+@dium Rock: Five Nights at the Opera on August 5 via Merge records (which is available for pre-order) and ahead of the release, the band is sharing a live outtake from 2015's epic rock opera The Most Lamentable Tragedy. "69 Stones," a jaunty country tune, is about "the weight that we all carry and the biological imperatives which keep us carrying it year after year, however arduous the task may seem,” +@ singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles said in a press release.

The band will also embark on a North American tour. +@'s “Rockers On The Road” includes Jersey City's Monty Hall on September 8, the Tommy Brull Foundation's annual 'Shine A Light' benefit show on October 6 at Cannon's Blackthorn in Rockville Centre, NY, and two small NYC shows at Market Hotel on October 7 and 8. Deer Tick-related band Happiness will open the NYC shows and the Tommy Brull Foundation benefit (Deer Tick have played that benefit more than once). A Giant Dog are opening the NJ show. Tickets go on sale Friday (6/24) at noon for NJ and NYC, and 11:45 AM for the benefit in Rockville Centre.

All dates are listed, with that "69 Stones" video, below.
