Our love for Titus Andronicus, our generation’s Civil-War-concept-album-crafting, New-Jersey-celebrating, live-show-shredding answer to Bruce Springsteen, knows no bounds, and now that they’ve added “FCC-violating-Coldplay-covering” to that list of descriptive adjectives, we think those bounds have been extended a little more.
That’s right, the band posted their take on Coldplay’s “In My Place” on their Soundcloud over the weekend, and while their instrumentals stick to the original’s soft-rock standard to some extent, the band bring some traditional Titus Andronicus vocals (and, um, lyrical additions) to the table. As if that wasn’t enough, they also recruited a selection of friends and recorded a cover of the Boss’s own “Glory Days” (finally!) under the moniker Shea Stadium All Stars that’s also worth a listen. Check both out.
