    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.”
