On The Will To Live, Titus Andronicus invite listeners on a journey from fear to faith, from anger to acceptance, from grief to gratitude, all while chasing the mythical ideal of Ultimate Rock.
Drawing on maximalist rock epics from Who's Next to Hysteria, Titus Andronicus have crafted their richest, densest, and hardest-hitting album to date, matching the sprawl and scope of their most celebrated work while also streamlining their ambitious attack to greater effect than ever before.
The Will To Live was produced by Titus Andronicus singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles and award-winning Canadian producer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Leonard Cohen, The Whole Nine Yards) at the latter's Hotel2Tango recording studio in Montreal. "It may strike some as ironic we had to go to Canada to record our equivalent to Born In The USA," says Stickles, "but the pursuit of Ultimate Rock knows no borders."
The Will To Live comes packaged with gorgeous triple gatefold artwork by illustrious illustrator Nicole Rifkin.
