Titus Andronicus have released a new track.

An Anomaly is taken from their new album, 'The Will To Live', which is due out on September 30. It follows previous cuts Give Me Grief and (I'm) Screwed

Singer and songwriter Patrick Stickles described the seven-minute song's sound as, “Eliminator-era ZZ Top covering Silver Jews.” It also features a one and a half minute guitar solo from Josée Caron of the Canadian rock band Partner. Watch its accompanying video below.

Discussing the inspiration for the track, Stickles continued:

“The titular ‘anomaly’ refers to the perversion of certain ‘natural’ impulses that have occurred within us humans upon taking ourselves out of the food chain, and the natural world in general. A lion killing and eating a wildebeest is not an act of evil, or even malice. Such imperatives are programmed into the very core of the wild animal. This drive exists within us also, but we have gone astray in not only holding on to this primal thirst for violence beyond the point of its utility, but expanding upon and fortifying it by way of our ever-more terrible technological advances, up to and including the invention of the atom bomb. If you want to know the true nature of that which we call ‘the Devil,’ that is where I would start.”

Titus Andronicus will support the record with a fall North American tour. Head here for details.
