Led by guitarist and singer Patrick Stickles, NY/NJ’s Titus Andronicus—named after a play by William Shakespeare—have a raucous and individual take on punk rock that embraces the fast and loud parts of the formula but leaves room for indie rock, garage rock, classic rock, and folk influences as the band careen through it all with a muscular passion and a surprising variety of literary references.

Along with Stickles, the band presently includes Liam Betson on guitar, R.J. Gordon on bass, and Chris Wilson on drums.
