Fucked Up have the most perfect name for any band in rock history. In two words it bluntly states the truth that lies at the heart of the white noise maelstrom - things are different from what you expect.
Right from the start this Toronto band has been pushing musical and conceptual boundaries. Forming ostensibly as a punk band, they swiftly took on hardcore and twisted it into their own version, with a psychedelic edge, unexpected instrumentation like flute and keyboards, and songs stretched to perverse lengths.
Titus Andronicus is a punk/indie rock band from, New Jersey, United States, formed in 2005. The band is composed of singer/lyricist/guitarist Patrick Stickles, bassist Julian Veronesi, guitarist Liam Betson, and drummer Eric Harm. The group takes its name from the Shakespeare play Titus Andronicus, and has cited musical and stylistic influences as diverse as Neutral Milk Hotel and Pulp.
Their first album, The Airing of Grievances, was released in 2008, and was described as the sound of a "violent, overblown and irreverent" indie band in a positive review in Pitchfork. The band's second album, The Monitor, was released on March 9, 2010, debuting at No. 7 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. In March, Rolling Stone named the band one of the seven best new bands of 2010. Titus Andronicus has also been featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Venus Zine and Dirty Laundry TV.
Their third album, Local Business, was released on October 23, 2012, through XL Recordings.
