Earlier this year, The Hold Steady released their seventh studio album, Thrashing Thru The Passion, a collection of five brand new songs and five songs released digitally between November 2017 and March 2019. It was the band’s first album in five years and found fans throughout UK and US media. Pitchfork said “The Hold Steady treat rock the way Penn & Teller treat magic: They deconstruct it, demystify it and expose it warts and all, but do so out of love and a belief that its behind-the-scenes machinations are every bit as beautiful and intriguing as the polished final product.” It also achieved 4* reviews at The Guardian, NME and Uncut.

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).
