The Hold Steady "You Did Good Kid"

The Hold Steady have shared “You Did Good Kid.” The track is off the group’s forthcoming release Thrashing Thru The Passion. The LP drops August 16 via Frenchkiss Records. “‘You Did Good Kid’ is the first song we worked on for this session, and remains a favourite” “It went though a few iterations before we came to this arrangement, and I’m really psyched on it. It feels great to play live, says Craig Finn.

The Hold Steady’s Thrashing Thru The Passion contains five new songs recorded this year combined with five previously released digitally. The full-length was recorded at The Isokon in Woodstock, NY with producer Josh Kaufman and engineer D. James Goodwin. Additional performers include Stuart Bogie, Dave Nelson, Jordan McLean and Michael Leonhart on horns and Annie Nero on backup vocals. The Hold Steady is: Bobby Drake (drums), Craig Finn (vocals), Tad Kubler (guitar, vocals), Franz Nicolay (keyboards), Galen Polivka (bass), and Steve Selvidge (guitar, vocals).

The Hold Steady will tour behind Thrashing Thru The Passion with live shows, weekends across the United States. These weekends take place in Seattle, WA’s The Crocodile (August 15-17), Chicago, IL’s Thalia Hall and Empty Bottle (August 22-24), Nashville, TN’s Basement East (September 5-7), Boston, MA’s The Sinclair (September 12-15), and the fourth annual “Massive Nights” event at NY’s Brooklyn Bowl (December 4-7).
