NEWS: Titus Andronicus share official version of the previously unreleased ’69 Stones’

New Jersey rockers Titus Andronicus have shared the video for the previously unreleased ‘69 Stones.’  The recording is taken from their new live album [email protected] Rock: Five Nights at the Opera, which is out on 29th July digitally via Merge Records.  The video itself is an excerpt from the album’s accompanying concert film. Originally intended to be a part of their 2015 rock opera The Most Lamentable Tragedy, the song itself is a country-tinged ditty.  Its video, however, captures the raw power (and sweatiness) of the genre-crossing band’s gigs.

Titus Andronicus singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles explained that ’69 Stones’ is about “the weight that we all carry and the biological imperatives which keep us carrying it year after year, however arduous the task may seem.” He continued: “The same urges which keep our animal friends on the hunt motivate we humans too – perhaps this is also what keeps Titus Andronicus on the road, compulsively rocking as we will do.
