Titus Andronicus Celebrate The Monitor with Vinyl and Tour

2020 was the ten year anniversary of one of RtBE's favorite records of the last decade, Titus Andronicus' The Monitor

To commemorate the event there will be a vinyl double album release and a tour this November focusing on the record. 

Back when we wrote about our top 50 albums of the last decade, The Monitor placed super high as we loved the over the top rambles, the connection of Civil War to 2010 New Jersey (things have only gotten worse) the anthemic scream-a-longs and Patrick Stickles whole musical style on this record. 

Stickles also said something very interesting regarding the anniversary's delay:

"As the 10th anniversary came and went, I considered scrapping the whole thing, but my audience has helped me so much to endure during this difficult time, and knowing how much they themselves have had to endure, I couldn't ignore or deny that they deserve a little treat. After so many years of doing whatever I want, for once, I'm going to give the people what they want."

That is great, and very honest. RtBE can't wait to own the vinyl and catch the band live. To get pumped here is a tune from the record:
