Titus Andronicus share new mixtape ‘A Reductive Scoff,’ announce new tour

Titus Andronicus returned to the music scene earlier this year with the stripped down, barroom rock album A Productive Cough. It was a deliberate move away from the band’s more energetic, punk sound. Frontman Patrick Stickles made it a point to tone down the anger in his lyrics and vocals, which fit in squarely with the more Springsteen-sounding instrumentals. Now if you wanted to hear how these songs got their shape, you’re in luck. Today the band have shared a full new mixtape of material from the A Productive Cough sessions.

The new mixtape, dubbed A Reductive Scoff, primarily features demos of much of the material. Plus you get a couple “basic tracks” and a studio outtake. And better yet, it’s completely free. The band have previously shared two other free mixtape in the past, and this one follows much in those same lines. You can give a listen to the entire thing right here.

To counteract the even more stripped-back sound of the new Titus Andronicus mixtape, the band have just announced a new tour being called the “American Rock Band Tour.” The reason for the naming comes from the fact that Stickles opted for a less band-focused tour behind A Productive Cough. Those dates showed Stickles performing solo with a pianist. But now the band is back together again. The new dates will come about a month after he wraps up some solo dates from around the world.
