Local Business is the third album by the American punk/indie rock band Titus Andronicus. It was released on October 22 via XL. The first single, "In a Big City", was posted in the band's blog on September 19.
A more stripped down record than their previous efforts, Local Business was recorded live in the studio with almost no overdubs, creating an album that was "plug-in-and-play" ready, helping the band sound as close as possible to the album when playing live.
The album received positive reviews and was listed at #38 on Rolling Stone's list of the top 50 albums of 2012, saying "These Jersey boys might be America's most desperately ambitious, righteously exciting punk-rock flamethrowers."
