Although we had to wait five years, The Hold Steady has finally announced their new studio album.
Named Thrashing Thru The Passion, the upcoming album will be follow up to the band’s 2014’s Teeth Dreams and will be released on August 16. In addition to featuring several of the already released tracks, the upcoming album will contain some new releases.
In the announcement, the band also shared its new track dubbed Denver Haircut”. The song is about a guy who meets up with Chance to a new location but eventually gets left behind in a hotel room. Craig Finn said, “Steve Selvidge (guitarist) brought in the music to this song and everyone felt it immediately, it was really fun to play. The story unfolded quickly too. When recording, we remarked that it sounded like it could kick off an album…and so here we are.”
