On July 28th, Titus Andronicus will unleash its fourth studio album, The Most Lamentable Tragedy, a 29-song “rock opera” influenced by the likes of Hüsker Dü and Lou Reed. The follow-up to 2012’s Local Business is due out through new label home Merge Records and clocks in at a whopping 93 minutes.

“The central narrative of TMLT (‘a work of fiction,’ claims singer/songwriter Patrick Stickles) concerns an unnamed protagonist whom we meet in deep despair,” reads a press release. “Following an encounter with his own doppelgänger (an enigmatic stranger, identical in appearance though opposite in disposition), long held secrets are revealed, sending our protagonist on a transformative odyssey, through past lives and new loves, to the shocking revelation that the very thing that sustains him may be the thing to destroy him.”

Already we’ve heard the volatile anthem “Dimed Out”. Now, Stickles & co. have shared “Fatal Flaw”, a snappy little ditty featuring jaunty saloon piano. Diehard fans might recognize the track, as the band’s been playing it live for the last few years. Check it out below via its corresponding video, which was shot and edited by Baked’s own Jeremy Aquilino.

Along with the new song, Titus Andronicus has mapped out a lengthy world tour that kicks off in September and lasts through late November.

Finally, Titus Andronicus have claimed “+@” (that’s plus-sign, at-sign) as a new symbol. The band identifies itself using the symbol in a new press release, as well as on their social networks and website.
