New Music Report: Titus Andronicus


In this week's New Music Report, Rolling Stone contributing editor Christian Hoard presents another segment of Christian Rock, spotlighting Titus Andronicus's new album The Monitor. Hoard says the Jersey rockers accomplish a strange feat with a "rare punk-rock album that blends Abraham Lincoln and Bruce Springsteen." The Monitor is a loose concept album about the Civil War, with portions of speeches by Lincoln and other historical figures interspersed between songs about isolation, alienation and youthful angst. Highlights include "A More Perfect Union" and "Richard II." Hoard adds that Titus Andronicus, named as the "Best Punk Brainiacs" in the Best New Bands 2010 feature in our new issue, "rock as thoroughly as any new band you'll hear all year."
