The Hold Steady have announced details of their brand new studio LP, to be titled ‘Thrashing Thru The Passion’ and released on August 16 through Frenchkiss Records.
The record includes the five tracks the band have released digitally between November 2017 and March this year.
Among the songs is new track ‘Denver Haircut’, which you can take a listen to below.
“’Denver Haircut’ is a story about a guy who has chance meet up that takes him to a few different locations before leaving him alone and cashless in a strange hotel room,” says the band’s lead singer Craig Finn.
“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.”
