Titles release new video for Pillowcase
Titles have followed up their video for Lug Me with yet a new and equally fantastic video for their song Pillowcase.
Info on Titles for those new to this sick band:
New Haven 5-piece, Titles recorded their third studio LP, Dirt Bell at various locations in Connecticut: from their skate park practice space to the guitarits' dad's furniture store, in some attics and basements and wide open spaces. The album was tracked by Titles themselves before the 12 songs were mixed by Greg Giorgio at Tarquin Studios whose previous successes include records by The National, Jónsi Birgisson and Paul Banks.
Dirt Bell takes its name from "Demon and Dirt Bell," a book by songwriter Titles' songwriter himself, Brad Amorosino. The book is an illustrated fairy tale in which a man wanders a dark world in search of a mystic bell that, when struck, rings endlessly and turns evil creatures to dust.
Titles began 5 years ago when songwriter Brad Amorosino and drummer John Miller began as a duo in 2005. The following year the band gained two members and released its debut self titled LP. They went on to release a split with fellow New Haveners, The Mountain Movers in 2007 and in 2008 they released their sophomore LP, Up with the Sun, which found itself on the iTunes Top Ten Best Alternative Albums You Didn't Hear list for 2008. Last year, guitarist/steel player Matt Wilson moved to Knoxville TN and the band was joined by keyboardist Dan Franko.
