New Jersey punk titans Titus Andronicus won’t release their third full-length LP, Local Business, until October 22 via XL, but group has today shared a rousing track from the new album along with the cover art. Back in August frontman Patrick Stickles announced that the new record would have “brief respites from the usual doom and gloom” and the new song, “In A Big City,” with its pounding beat and its sing-along ready chorus about dreams and ghosts, feels like one of those moments of positivity. Watch the playful lyric video for the track, below.
In a typically wordy post on the band’s website, Stickels explain that the album’s striking cover art comes from musician Nolen Strals, formerly of Double Dagger and now a member of Pure Junk. You can check out the cover, below.
