The Hold Steady


The-Hold-Steady.jpg


The Hold Steady are a Brooklyn-based musical group, although the members have strong connections to the Minneapolis region of Minnesota—something that is frequently reflected in the group's lyrics. Frontman Craig Finn was previously vocalist for Twin Cities band Lifter Puller. Their first album Almost Killed Me (2004) was a sleeper hit among music critics, later appearing at #31 in the influential Pazz & Jop listing in New York's Village Voice. Some months later in May 2005, they were the first rock group to grace the Voice's front page in 15 years. The group's second album, Separation Sunday, was released later in the month. Their third album and Vagrant Records debut, Boys and Girls in America was released on October 3, 2006. Prior albums were released under the Frenchkiss Records imprint.

The title - Boys and Girls in America - refers to a line in Jack Kerouac's 1957 novel On the Road. On August 18th, 2006 the track 'Chips Ahoy' was released online as a free single on popular indie music site Pitchfork Media.
