The Hold Steady
The Hold Steady
Formed in 2003, The Hold Steady have released six albums, numerous singles and played over 1000 shows during the past 15 years.
The Brooklyn-based band has performed in all 50 states in the USA, nearly every province in Canada and throughout Europe and Australia.
In November 2017, The Hold Steady released their first new music in over three years when they put out the songs “Entitlement Crew” & “Snake In The Shower” ahead of their (now) annual week-after-Thanksgiving four night stand at the Brooklyn Bowl. In March 2018, ahead of a sold out weekend at The Electric Ballroom in London, the band released two more new songs, “Eureka” and “Esther”.
2018 will see The Hold Steady re-issue a 10th Anniversary Edition of their fourth studio album Stay Positive, featuring b-sides and previously unreleased outtakes.
The band will play a series of special weekend shows beginning in July called “Constructive Summer”.
On Thursday July 26 & Friday July 27 we are taking the Constructive Summer to Philadelphia for two shows at the awesome Union Transfer club. The next day, Saturday July 28, we move the party a bit east to Asbury Park NJ with a show at the new Asbury Lanes. We have a cool merch bundle available for these shows. We will also be doing two Soundcheck Happy Hour events, one before each of the shows at Union Transfer. You can also buy a three day pass for these shows. Really looking forward to being with all the friendly friends in Philly and to get some summer beach weather down in Asbury. Join us! Stay Positive!
The Hold Steady is: Bobby Drake (drums), Craig Finn (vocals), Tad Kubler (guitar, vocals), Franz Nicolay (keyboards, vocals), Galen Polivka (bass), and Steve Selvidge (guitar, vocals).
