Titus Andronicus' new album, The Most Lamentable Tragedy, is a rock opera in five parts that singer Patrick Stickles says sums up his 20s. The punk-influenced band from New Jersey is no stranger to exploring grand concepts — it received considerable success for its album The Monitor, which drew thematically from the Civil War.

On this page, hear Titus Andronicus, which celebrates its 10th anniversary as a band this year, perform a set recorded at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. Stickles also joins the Philadelphia Inquirer's Dan DeLuca in conversation.
