With their seventh studio album, revered rock institution Titus Andronicus invite you on a journey from fear to faith, from anger to acceptance, from grief to gratitude, chasing the mythical ideal of Ultimate Rock, all in hopes that you will find The Will to Live.
The band also invite you to see them perform live at Black Cat on Tuesday, April 4. And you can win a pair of tickets to go with Parklife DC!
The Will to Live, released last year, was produced by Titus Andronicus singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles and Canadian icon Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Leonard Cohen, The Whole Nine Yards) at the latter’s Hotel 2 Tango recording studio in Montreal. Drawing on maximalist rock epics from Who’s Next to Hysteria, Bilerman and Stickles have crafted the richest, densest, and hardest-hitting sound for Titus Andronicus yet. All at once, the record matches the sprawl and scope of the band’s most celebrated work, while also honing their ambitious attack to greater effect than ever before.
“It may strike some as ironic we had to go to Canada to record our equivalent to Born in the USA,” Patrick said, “but the pursuit of Ultimate Rock knows no borders.”

Dimed Out is not only my personal favorite TA song, it’s THE definitive song in their catalog in my opinion. Feels like a total artistic statement. Hopefully they’ll play it!
Would love to see them, thanks!
Titus Andronicus Forever!
I just discovered the band and immediately fell in love with anomaly. My life kinda feels like an anomaly
