[Watch] Titus Andronicus Release Bootleg VHS-Style Clip for "Still Life With Hot Deuce And Silver Platter"

Titus Andronicus are a hell of a lot of fun live, and that's what is on show in their video for "Still Life With Hot Deuce And Silver Platter." The visuals for the Local Business highlight come in the style of an early '90s bootleg VHS, complete with fuzzy sheen, screen glitches and artifacting. All this overlays a performance by the band during a sold-out show at Brooklyn's Shea Stadium, with mosh pits and rowdiness galore from both the crowd and the band. That's some authentic shit.

The band also released a cover of Icona Pop's "I Love It" yesterday. Renaming it "I Don't Care," the cover is a mess of distorted guitars, enthusiastic percussion and energetic, raspy vocals. Simply put, it's fucking awesome. Check it out below.

[Watch] Titus Andronicus - "In a Big City"

Titus Andronicus quickly follow up the release of their latest album Local Business with a literal visual accompaniment to the lead single "In a Big City". The Isaac Ravishankara-directed affair follows lead singer Patrick Stickles as he journies across his home state of New Jersey, ending his march with a riverside view of the New York skyline. Check it out above.

For a more in-depth look at the video, check out Grantland's Amos Barshad's behind-the-scenes expose as he spent time with the band discussing their new album, band history, and more.

[Listen] Titus Andronicus - "Still Life with Hot Deuce and Silver Platter"

Titus Andronicus follow-up the infectious "In a Big City", the lead single from their forthcoming album Local Business, with an even more infectious and raucous rock anthem. The track, titled "Still Life with Hot Deuce and Silver Platter", doesn't win any appreciation for its lengthy title, but the addicting nature of its rumbiling guitar riffs and sing-a-long friendly verses make it a solid song from start to finish. Speaking of singing along, the song has an accompanying lyric video which you can watch below.

Local Business is out on October 23rd via XL Recordings, and NPR is streaming the whole album now. Head here to stream the entirety of the band's third album.
