The Hold Steady Debut new single "Sixers"

The Hold Steady have released “Sixers,” the song is off the band’s album The Price of Progress, which drops via their own Positive Jams label via Thirty Tigers on Friday, March 31. “”Sixers’ was written in the first days of the pandemic,” says frontman Craig Finn. “It’s basically a song about knowing your neighbors. Two young professionals meet up in their building late on a Friday night and spend the weekend partying together. They try to find a love connection, but it’s not quite there. It’s hard to make friends when your job is so demanding. Tad and Steve chime in with some beautiful guitar harmonies.”

The Hold Steady, recently celebrated their 20th anniversary with intimate, sold-out shows in Brooklyn, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC – will also celebrate The Price of Progress with a live schedule including the 2023 edition of The Weekender, the band’s annual multi-night live event for fans in the United Kingdom and European Union, set for March 10-12 at London’s Electric Ballroom (March 10-11) and Colours Hoxton (March 12). Additional dates include a sold-out two-night stand at Chicago, IL’s The Salt Shed, set for June 30 and July 1, joined by special guests The Mountain Goats and Dillinger Four.

2023 sees the inaugural “We Can Get Together,” a special weekend curated for the fans in Portland, OR, April 27 – 29. The Hold Steady hasn’t performed in Portland since 2014 and has planned a variety of special events to help celebrate the return. Single-night tickets and three-day passes will be available as will limited tickets to a Soundcheck/Happy Hour event on Friday, April 28. The band will kick the weekend off at Mississippi Studios Thursday, April 27, and then will move over to Revolution Hall for the Friday and Saturday night shows, on April 28 and 29.
