All of these shows, with the exception of Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, will enjoy the support of the great contemporary punk band and Matador Records recording artist Ceremony. If you haven’t already, start getting to know them via the below video, for their song “World Blue” from the 2012 release “Zoo.”
To celebrate our new-found friendship, the merchandise table for this tour will feature an exclusive seven inch single split between our two bands, with “In A Big City” on the Titus side, and a previously unreleased song called “Everything Burns” on the Ceremony side. I can only assume this is a reference to “The Dark Knight,” which has me as excited as you might guess.
As always, if you wish to have Titus Andronicus as yr house guests in exchange for free entry for you and yr friends to our show in yr city, e-mail TitusAndronicusTheBand@Gmail.com and let us know!
We will have a few more dates to reveal in the coming weeks to fill in the gaps in the schedule, which you know we can not abide. We’ll also have a very special announcement in about two weeks, so keep yr eyes on this space!
P.S. Don’t forget that you can pre-order “Local Business” via the XL Recordings website here, including limited edition red vinyl for you wax aficionados.
