“New Jersey band Titus Andronicus may have scaled things back a bit from the Civil War rock operatics of The Monitor for new album Local Business, but their ragged brand of sing-along punk remains triumphantly intact, and their live show continues to be a stomping, cathartic blast.”
Behold the amazing, yet true, story of the third Titus Andronicus LP, LOCAL BUSINESS. It begins with a plan of action. While the first two LPs were elaborate concoctions, requiring the contributions of 30+ musicians, the most advanced computer wizardry and transmissions from an alternate universe, LOCAL BUSINESS would be of the earth, the handiwork of a living and breathing entity. No more would Titus Andronicus the studious recording project and Titus Andronicus the raucous touring machine be two distinct beings; there would only be Titus Andronicus, rock and roll band. At the center of the band remained, as ever, singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles. Flanking him was the dynamic duo of Eric Harm on drums and Julian Veronesi on bass, rhythm section and principal backup singers. Returning to the fold was recent college graduate Liam Betson on guitar, whose studies kept him off the road but not away from the recording of the first two LPs.
