MORE INFO :

Since debuting in 2008, Titus Andronicus has been conditioning faithful listeners to always expect only the unexpected, consistently zigging where others would zag and maintaining a steadfast dedication to fearless ambition. With the March 2 release of the new studio album A Productive Cough on Merge Records, Titus Andronicus has executed the most shocking departure yet—but only if, as ever mercurial singer-songwriter Patrick Stickles insists, “you haven’t been paying attention.”

In a move that may infuriate the black-denim-and-PBR set, A Productive Cough finds the band setting aside the leadfooted punk anthems of yesteryear in favor of a subtler, more spacious approach that pushes Stickles’ soul-baring songwriting to the fore, creating a conversational intimacy between artist and audience with which previous Titus Andronicus’ efforts had only flirted.

About Us

ONE OF TimeOut Chicago’s “BEST RECORD STORES IN CHICAGO”

Record Breakers started thirty years ago in 1988 as a suburb storefront in Hoffman Estates, IL.  In 2007, then-owner Robby Glick migrated Breakers to Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood, where it took up residence on the second floor of Reggies – an all-in-one bar, concert venue, record store and rooftop bar.  After nearly 10 years at 2105 S. State St, Robby has passed the ownership torch to long-time employees Colin Brennan and Eric Kratz, and under this new ownership, Breakers has relocated once more to a brand new storefront home: this time on Milwaukee Avenue in Avondale.*

We buy, sell and trade used vinyl and cassettes, and offer up an impressive selection of band t-shirts, turntables and collectibles – band stickers, patches and posters.

Swing by Record Breakers to check out our collection of new and used vinyl, everything from Jefferson Airplane to Edith Piaf to Merle Haggard, as well as the new releases everyone’s talking about. Stay tuned for an upcoming monthly showcase featuring local bands in our all-ages space.

*Fun fact: Breakers is now in the space that once housed Blind Pig Records. Our space has a lot of creative history. Stop in and visit to learn more.
