Titus Andronicus definitely has us excited for their new album An Obelisk due in late June. With their anthem driven first single, the Bob Mould produced record should perk ears and give the band a larger audience. Now the group has just released a new song, the album’s closer “Tumult Around The World.”
While the song isn’t as fist pumping as “(I Blame) Society,” it still has plenty of screaming energy and punk intensity. With a stride that reminds you of early music from The Who, the song gets going quickly and never really lets up. The vocals are gruff and unreserved while the guitars, bass and drums create and growling tone from start to finish. The video is noteworthy, if not just because it’s a different take on an audio video proving Titus Andronicus will always follow their own path.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube, the song can be purchased in all online music stores or streamed on all streaming platforms. An Obelisk is available for pre-order directly from Merge Records ahead of its release on June 21. Titus Andronicus will be on tour starting June 21 at Rough Trade in Brooklyn, NY until September 15 at The Imperial in Vancouver, BC. The band’s entire tour schedule can be found here.
