The Hold Steady Sign To New Label Washington Square

Bookmark and Share

The Hold Steady has signed to Washington Square, a new label imprint formed by Razor & Tie. The band has signed a worldwide multi-album deal that will see the release of a new studio album Teeth Dreams on March 25th 2014. The album is produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Rush, Evanescence). The Hold Steady will also kick off a string of tour dates in January 2014 that will include two 10th Anniversary shows (tour dates below).

The New York City based band The Hold Steady is the first signing to the newly created label Washington Square that will include future signings in the indie and alt-rock genres. The Washington Square roster will also include the UK rock band Deaf Havana and the New York based indie rockers Born Cages.

Washington Square/Razor & Tie Co-Owner Cliff Chenfeld adds, "We are huge fans of The Hold Steady and could not be more excited that they will help us launch the new label. Washington Square will be a home for groundbreaking artists both established and new, who will make music that is vital and inspiring."
"We're excited for this new chapter," says Hold Steady's Craig Finn. "We're really proud of our new record." Adds the band's Tad Kubler, "This is an exciting time for us. Making the new record has been a journey for the band, and the results exceeded even our own expectations. Can't wait for people to hear it."

Formed in 2004 and originally from Minneapolis, MN, The Hold Steady are a critically acclaimed rock band with a vibrant mixture of punk ethos and classic rock pedigree punctuated by lyrically dense storytelling and guitar riffs. The band's narrative based songs have made them fans around the world. In May 2005 The Hold Steady were the first rock band to grace the front page of The Village Voice in 15 years. Their 2006 album, Boys and Girls in America was ranked No. 8 on the Rolling Stone Best Albums of 2006 list, and No. 1 by The A.V. Club. Pitchfork wrote of the album, "[Craig Finn] not only has a commanding, rousing voice but he also says something worth hearing, displaying gifts for both scope and depth that are all too rare in contemporary rock - indie or mainstream." Previously signed to Frenchkiss and Vagrant, The Hold Steady have released five studio albums, with their last release Heaven is Whenever in 2010. Rolling Stone gave the album 4 out of 5 stars raving, "On Heaven Is Whenever, the Hold Steady don't just show us how much they love classic rock - they make some of their own. It's their most polished record, nearly majestic at points, without scrimping on bloodshot angst or exuberance."

The Hold Steady have toured the world extensively as both headliners and as a support act with Death Cab For Cutie, The Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows and many more. They recently created an original version of "The Bear And The Maiden Fair" for the hit television series Game Of Thrones. The band will also release a covers EP entitled RAGS direct to fans this month via Pledge Music to benefit the K + L Guardian Foundation in honor of devoted fan and concert promoter Mike "Jersey Mike" Van Jura, who passed away in late 2012.
