The Hold Steady has released a new single. “Eureka” b/w “Esther” is arriving at all DSPs and streaming services via Frenchkiss Records on March 12th.
“Eureka” b/w “Esther” is currently available to hear exclusively at The Hold Steady’s Bandcamp page. Anyone wishing to download the single can do so via Bandcamp, with all donations going to The K + L Guardian Foundation, a fund set up to benefit the children of Unified Scene founder Mike Van Jura, who died in November 2012.
Recorded this past November in Brooklyn, NY, with producer Josh Kaufman, “Eureka” b/w “Esther” follows recent new recordings “Entitlement Crew” b/w “A Snake In The Shower.” These songs are the band’s first new material in four years, and the first studio recordings to feature longtime keyboard player Franz Nicolay since 2008’s beloved fourth album, STAY POSITIVE.
“Eureka” b/w “Esther” arrives as The Hold Steady prepare to kick off “Boys And Girls In London” - a remarkable three-show run that includes two nights at London’s Electric Ballroom and a further night at The Lexington - celebrating the music, community, and positivity that has defined the band since its very beginning. The Lexington show will be a special, intimate, celebration with fans, some of whom will be served a full Sunday roast dinner in the afternoon. Having filled Brooklyn Bowl with the show on four consecutive nights last November – an event that Uncut magazine described as “brilliant” - it’s now the UK’s turn to experience what they have in store. Complete with surprise special guests…
