The Hold Steady Announce 20th Anniversary Oral History Book
The Hold Steady have announced an oral history book called The Gospel of the Hold Steady: How a Resurrection Really Feels in celebration of the band’s 20th anniversary. It’s due out July 25 via Akashic.
The book comprises interviews with everyone who has ever played in or worked with the band over the course of their career. It includes more than 200 photographs and images, as well as essays by writers Michael Hann, Rob Sheffield, Laura Barton, and Isaac Fitzgerald. A limited-edition preorder package includes a signed copy of the book and a signed copy of the chapbook TJK on THS, a behind-the-scenes photo journal by guitarist Tad J. Kubler with an introduction by frontman Craig Finn.
The band’s forthcoming ninth studio album The Price of Progress is due out this Friday (March 31) on their own Positive Jams label. Last year Finn released the solo album A Legacy of Rentals.
