Titus Andronicus Share “(I’m) Screwed,” First Single from Forthcoming Album The Will to Live

Titus Andronicus are back with their seventh studio album, The Will to Live, out via Merge Records on Sept. 30. The band gave fans a first glimpse at the album with their new single, “(I’m) Screwed,” and announced an extensive fall U.S. tour in support of it, which will officially kick off with their record release show on Sept. 30 in Carrboro, North Carolina.

The follow-up to their cover of 1982 Cock Sparrer’s “We’re Coming Back,” the band announced their new phase with a music video directed by Ray Concepcion. Filmed in the band’s hometown of Glen Rock, New Jersey, they deliver an electric performance of the new single from the back of a flatbed truck during the Independence Day Parade. An instant classic, it features crashing percussion and an anthemic aura that makes even the suburban neighborhood they’re driving through feel like an arena.

“In ’(I’m) Screwed,’ we are introduced to the narrator of The Will to Live at the moment he realizes the walls are closing in,” lead singer and guitarist Patrick Stickles said. “Be it real or imagined, he feels the pressure building on all sides, a feeling to which many of us can relate, I imagine. His faith and fortitude are tested like never before, and the narrative of the album will reveal whether that pressure crushes him or produces a diamond.”
