A More Perfect Union

Titus Andronicus | MySpace Music Videos

The video for Titus Andronicus‘ “A More Perfect Union” premiered on their MySpace page a few days ago. The pros: Playing in the snow dressed in vaguely 19th century clothing with American flags in the background offers a visual component that matches the epic feel of the song; Patrick Stickles’ beard looks particularly awesome; the part where they’re marching down the road, combined with the spoken-word outro reminds me of Winston Churchill’s, “The world was made to be wooed and won by youth” speech, which gives me goosebumps. The cons: The video drops out at the 3:30 mark, cutting off the second half of the song. To see what you’re missing, listen to the full thing here.
