Titus Andronicus New Single

2nd one off The Moniter:

Not the obvious choice, but anthemic enough in the end. 

PS. I think I've finally figured out band-leader Patrick Stickles' thing with the beard.  He's not doing the Jihadi look; he's doing the Starving American Civil War Soldier look, which fits in with the themes on the album.  Believe it or not. Still, success has changed him.  From the video it looks likes he's filled out a bit; not sure "the look" works anymore. Anyway, in rawk beards are almost always a mistake. Look what happened to Jim Morrison: he grew a beard, he died.

Anyway, these days these guys are my favorite rock band, and Stickles my favorite candidate for rock boy genius.
