Two New Hold Steady Songs Released Today

The Hold Steady are about to embark on a mini tour this summer to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Stay Positive.

In anticipation of the shows the band got together this past May and recorded two brand new songs which they will be playing at the upcoming shows. They released them today and you can get them from the bands bandcamp site.

You can listen to them below as well. They are titled "The Stove & The Toaster" which deals with shady dealings and horn charts while "Star 18" is an upbeat bass driven cooker. For each of the bands previous mini tours they have released a few new tunes and upon first few listens these two sound like the best of the recent bunch by a lot.

Some info regarding the tracks:
These were produced by Josh Kaufman and recorded by D. James Goodwin. Stuart Bogie and Dave Nelson played the horns and Annie Nero helped with some backup vox. Nick Hollomon designed the artwork.
You should pay some money and download them as well, it goes to a good cause. As the band states:
If you choose to download these two songs, a donation will be made to benefit the K+L Guardian Foundation. ALL monies received from downloads will be transferred to the K+L Guardian Foundation.

The K+L Guardian Foundation was formed to benefit "Jersey" Mike Van Jura's children after he suddenly passed away in November 2012 at only 36 years of age. Jersey Mike was the unofficial leader of The Unified Scene.

Looking forward to Constructive Summer. Limited tickets still available for select shows! www.theholdsteady.net
RtBE will be there to kick things off on July 25th in Jersey City.
