Titus Andronicus – The Most Lamentable Tragedy (2015)

A rock opera in five acts, The Most Lamentable Tragedy is the fourth studio album by Titus Andronicus and the band’s debut for Merge Records. The central narrative of The Most Lamentable Tragedy (“a work of fiction,” claims singer/songwriter Patrick Stickles) concerns an unnamed protagonist whom we meet in deep despair. 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. The Most Lamentable Tragedy was produced by frequent collaborator Kevin McMahon and Titus Andronicus lead guitarist Adam Reich.
