The tour also includes four shows at the Brooklyn Bowl in NY November 29 through December 1-2.

Hailed by Pitchfork as “vivid and weird: a celebration of second winds, unlikely comebacks, and undying rock’n’roll dreams,” The Hold Steady’s acclaimed ninth studio album, The Price of Progress, is available now on their own Positive Jams label via Thirty Tigers in a variety of formats, including digital download, CD, standard black vinyl, translucent green vinyl (, metallic gold (Independent Retail exclusive), metallic silver (Vinyl Me, Please exclusive), and white (Rough Trade exclusive). The album includes such standout tracks as “Grand Junction,” “Understudies,” “Sixers,” and “Sideways Skull,” all available now for streaming and download. The Hold Steady recently visited NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers for an explosive live performance of “Sideways Skull.” 

The Hold Steady’s landmark 20th anniversary will further be commemorated by the upcoming publication of The Gospel of The Hold Steady: How a Resurrection Really Feels, a new oral history by Michael Hann and The Hold Steady, arriving July 25 via Akashic Books. Preorders are available now. Exclusive to the online pre-order is a Limited-Edition Package for The Gospel of the Hold Steady featuring a copy of the book signed by the band as well as the signed chapbook, TJK on THS – a behind-the-scenes photo journal by guitarist Tad J. Kubler spanning the band’s two-decade history (along with an exclusive introduction by THS frontman Craig Finn) only available as part of this package.
