The Hold Steady Release Two New Tracks

& Playing Brooklyn Bowl This Weekend

It's been a while since New York rock n' roll staples, The Hold Steady, have released anything new. Since 2014's Teeth Dreams, the band has reissued the bulk of their early discography - a reminder of what put the Brooklyn natives on the map. This weekend, you can celebrate over a decade of music with The Hold Steady for a weekend of holiday shows in NYC. 

But before then, you can check out two new rock n' roll sluggers, "Entitlement Crew" and "A Snake In The Shower." Vocalist, Craig Finn, unleashes his signature poetic quirk over Tad Kubler's hard-hitting guitar chops. The two tracks were released via Bandcamp, which you can stream below. 

The shows will start Wednesday, November 29th at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY. They will continue to play Brooklyn Bowl every night through Saturday, December 2nd. You can get tickets below.

In light of the events, the band writes: 

Hey Everyone, The four shows at Brooklyn Bowl are pretty much upon us. We are calling this year “Massive Nights” and we are predicting massive things indeed. In anticipation, we are sharing with you two new songs that we recently wrote and recorded: 1. Entitlement Crew 2. A Snake In The Shower We recorded these in Brooklyn just this month. We hope to play them at the shows, so we thought we’d share them in case you want to sing along. These will be available for the fans here on Bandcamp for this week, and next week we will make them available via the major digital music providers. If you choose to download these two songs, a donation will be made to benefit the K+L Guardian Foundation. ALL monies received from downloads will be transferred to the K+L Guardian Foundation. The K+L Guardian Foundation was formed to benefit “Jersey” Mike Van Jura’s children after he suddenly passed away in November 2012 at only 36 years of age. Jersey Mike was the unofficial leader of The Unified Scene. You can stream and download the tracks starting RIGHT NOW on our Bandcamp page! Thanks for Listening! Thanks for Understanding! Stay Positive! The Hold Steady
