Titus Andronicus’ bluster doesn't come easy. It hits hard. Frontman Patrick Stickles is all spit and bile, even when he's sing-ranting about getting drunk in his basement with old friends during the holidays. So on new Titus track "In A Big City," you'd expect that bluster to be magnified—a new album, new anger, new parts of the world and yourself to rage against—but this song is focused. The vocal contempt for everything is still there but tempered by beautiful guitar work and the sort of anthemic quality that this band does so well. "In A Big City" comes from Titus Andronicus' upcoming Local Business, which is out October 22nd on XL.
