The Hold Steady – ” The Price of Progress “

Posted: January 5, 2023 in MUSIC

The Hold Steady is 20 years old! Time flies when you’re having fun, but it’s still hard to believe that 2023 makes two decades of THS. Of course, we think growing out of our teenage years is reason to throw a party or two – this year will be full of Hold Steady celebrations to honour the music, positivity, and incredible community that have made the last twenty years so amazing.

The Hold Steady have announced a new album. “The Price of Progress” releases March 31st via the band’s own Positive Jams label and Thirty Tigers and is led by the single “Sideways Skull.” The band, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, will also hit the road starting January 28th in Brooklyn, New York, for a series of special event concerts.

we are releasing our 9th studio album “The Price of Progress” on March 31st, 2023 via Positive Jams/Thirty Tigers. Produced by Josh Kaufman and recorded over the past year, this record features 10 new the Hold Steady songs, some of which we’ve been playing live in recent shows.

“The Price of Progress” is the follow-up to 2021’s “Open Door Policy”. The band recorded its ninth LP in Rhinebeck, New York, with production by Bonny Light Horseman’s Josh Kaufman and mixing by D. James Goodwin. “These are some of the most cinematic songs in the Hold Steady catalogue, and the record was a joy to make,” vocalist and guitarist Craig Finn wrote in a statement. “I feel like we went somewhere we haven’t before, which is a very exciting thing for a band that is two decades into our career.”
