Titus Andronicus have just announced a new studio album, titled The Most Lamentable Tragedy. The band’s follow-up to 2012’s Local Business is due for release on July 28 via Merge, and yes, the title is a Shakespeare reference to the same play that gave Titus Andronicus their name. That’s the cover art above, designed by Nolen Strals.
The Most Lamentable Tragedy is the band’s longest album to date (93 minutes), with 29 songs, and will be released on two CDs and three LPs. Kevin McMahon and lead guitarist Adam Reich produced the album, which also features Owen Pallett on violin. The band also included covers of Daniel Johnston’s “I Had Lost My Mind” and the Pogues’ “A Pair of Brown Eyes” on the album.
