TITUS ANDRONICUS SHARE NEW SINGLE 'BABY CRAZY' WATCH THE LYRIC VIDEO HERE: https://youtu.be/9V_7YPH6wMw ANNOUNCE 2023 UK + IE TOUR DATES NEW ALBUM, THE WILL TO LIVE, OUT TOMORROW ON MERGE RECORDS
This summer, revered rock institution Titus Andronicus have stoked fans' excitement for their forthcoming seventh studio album The Will To Live with a string of singles that have run the gamut from concise and hard-hitting ("(I'm) Screwed," "Give Me Grief") to burly seven-minute epics ("An Anomaly"), leaving listeners breathlessly curious about what could possibly follow.
Today, those questions are answered with the album's final pre-release single, the rollicking, rapid-fire 'Baby Crazy', which Vulture described as "an ethics lesson wrapped in a tuneful punk jam." With a barrage of pounding piano chords, ribbons of saxophone and a heart-racing rhythm, the album's ambitions to achieve "Ultimate Rock" are laid bare in just over four minutes. If you were waiting for 2022's answer to 'We Didn't Start the Fire', it's here. The track is accompanied by yet another unforgettable official music video, which finds frontman Patrick Stickles simply belting the densely-worded track as the lyrics scroll by. "As inscrutable as some of my artistic choices may sometimes appear, I do wish to be understood, as communication is the purpose of all art," Stickles says. "This led me to approach this song as something of a user's guide for the album, wherein I explicate as clearly as I can the meaning behind the recurring symbology I utilise throughout -- the mother, the father, the baby, etc. It is my hope that this will lead the listener to a richer listening experience... or they can just tap their foot to it, whatever works." Stickles will further explain the story behind The Will To Live in a Reddit AMA on r/indieheads this Friday at 6pm BST.
After ravenously taking in The Will To Live's early singles, fans will finally get the chance to see Patrick Stickles and co. perform them live as they kick off the first leg of their 2022–23 world tour with their record release show on September 30th at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC. The band has today also announced a run of UK and Ireland dates for 2023 as well.
