In July of 2005, the rock band Titus Andronicus made their first live appearance, performing for a few friends in an unfinished basement. The ensuing decade would see nearly 800 shows, 18 members, and the release of three full-length albums and 14 7-inches, as the group rose from their obscure beginnings in the tri-state DIY scene to the heights of international "indie stardom," only to (nearly?) throw it all away in a vicious cycle of depression and decadence. The culmination of that ten-year journey was their fourth album, the sprawling "The Most Lamentable Tragedy," in 2015, their first release on Merge Records. A rock opera in five acts, it has 29 tracks and a running time of 93:44.
