The Airing of Grievances Gets the Re-Release Treatment on XL in January

“Patrick Stickles howls with anguish way beyond his 22 years, often cramming lyrics into tight spaces just to make sure he gets the last word in…the drama’s more Boss than Bright Eyes, fueled by blue collar frustration and, most notably, beer.”-PITCHFORK

Following similar moves by Bon Iver and Deer Tick, Titus Andronicus will re-release their spastic, yet highly thrilling self-titled debut in 2009 under the banner of a prominent new label, in this case XL Recordings. While we haven't checked out the remastered version yet, their previous effort is sure to appear in our top 20 records of '08. The Airing of Grievances hits shelves (again) January 20. Titus is touring with Los Campesinos! - dates after the jump...

Elsewhere in the blog world today... M.Ward is releasing a new record Feb 17 on Merge featuring guest spots from his leading lass Zooey Deschanel and Lucy Williams. M Ward will play the Apollo Theatre in NYC on February 19th. Tickets for that show, and all shows, go on presale Tuesday at 10 AM (password = holdtime) Via BV.
