Titus Andronicus share STACKS sitcom pilot with two new An Obelisk tracks: Watch

on May 29, 2019, 1:02pm

In the last few weeks, Titus Andronicus announced their new LP, An Obelisk, and released its first two singles. Now, in addition to detailing an extensive 2019 tour, the subversive punk band has revealed the pilot for STACKS, a new sitcom (?) to support the follow-up to last year’s A Productive Cough.

STACKS follows the comedic traditions of Seinfeld and Maron, focused on the daily life of Titus Andronicus singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles. Per a statement, the program serves as a fictionalized autobiography of sorts, following the frontman as “attempts to navigate a ‘heightened’ reality where the perils and pitfalls of the modern music industry take on nightmarish proportions.” The show also acts as a conduit for the release of new An Obelisk songs, with tracks “Just Like Ringing a Bell” and “Troubleman Unlimited” incorporated into STACKS’ music sequences.

The sitcom is a collaboration between Stickles and director Ray Concepcion, who have previously worked together on Titus projects including The Magic Morning and A Productive Cough: The Documentary. Noted Stickles,

“What a blessing for a guy like me to be the beneficiary of Ray Concepcion’s inestimable talents… Where once my capricious whims would vanish into the ether immediately following their conception, I can now turn to my trusted ally so that they might be actualized into vibrant life. I will forever celebrate and cherish the man with the golden eye.”

Watch the 36-minute pilot episode below. You can also tune into Titus Andronicus’ YouTube page at 9:00 p.m. ET for STACKS ON STACKS: The Official STACKS After-Show, a live Q&A and panel discussion with Stickles and friends.

In a slightly more on-brand announcement, Titus Andronicus has announced an extensive 63-date North American fall tour. Check out the itinerary before tickets go on sale on Friday at noon local.
