Formed in 2003, The Hold Steady have released eight albums, numerous singles and played
over 1,000 shows.
The Brooklyn-based band has performed in all 50 states in the USA and throughout Canada,
Europe and Australia. The Hold Steady music has appeared across movies, advertising and TV,
including on Game Of Thrones and Billions, in addition to writing original material for Seth
Meyers cartoon The Awesomes and Meyers' 2019 stand-up comedy special Lobby Baby.
In February 2021, The Hold Steady released their most recent record, Open Door Policy, which
achieved the highest chart position of any The Hold Steady release, debuting #6 on the
Billboard Current Album Chart. Vulture hailed that the record "expands their horizons," and
"gives the Hold Steady new heft and variety without undercutting the sharpness of the hooks or
singer-guitarist Craig Finn's heart-wrenching novelistic lyricism."
Throughout 2022 the band has continued their extended multi-show runs in cities across the
globe, including The Weekender in London and appearances in Toronto, Melbourne (Australia),
Nashville, Atlanta, Denver and Los Angeles. The Hold Steady have done the post-
Thanksgiving Massive Nights weekend in Brooklyn at Brooklyn Bowl every year since 2016.
The Hold Steady is: Bobby Drake (drums), Craig Finn (vocals), Tad Kubler (guitar, vocals), Franz
Nicolay (keyboards, vocals), Galen Polivka (bass), and Steve Selvidge (guitar, vocals).
