Ray Concepcion directs the doc, which includes lots of behind-the-scenes footage from inside the studio.

"[Concepcion] is one of the most singular artists I have ever known, as well as one of the most principled and most disciplined," Titus Andronicus' bandleader Patrick Stickles says. "Hhis steadfast, ruthless dedication to excellence pushed me to reach for that same standard - in the presence of such a samurai, one can not help but strive to sharpen the sword, so to speak."

Stickles & Co. have already previewed their follow up to 2015 rock opera The Most Lamentable Tragedy with tracks "Number One (In New York)" and "Above The Bodega (Local Business)".
