Honing new material in the band's Greenpoint, Brooklyn rehearsal space, the Craig Finn-fronted band spent the bulk of the past winter perfecting the follow up to 2006's 'Boys and Girls In America' at Hoboken, NJ's Water Music and Wild Arctic studio in Queens, New York. Guests on the sessions include former Guided by Voices guitarist Doug Gillard and Lucero's Ben Nichols.
The 11-track album boasts titles like 'Both Crosses,' 'Slapped Actress' and the set-launcher, 'Constructive Summer.' Describing the new disc, Finn told Uncut, "I believe it captures a band hitting their creative peak, as well as enjoying each other's creativity and company."
In advance of the disc, the Hold Steady will play a brief tour next month, anchored by an appearance at All Tomorrow's Parties on May 11.
