Rock Steady

The Hold Steady bring bombast back to rock & roll

So if the Hold Steady plays something called classic rock, don't misunderstand. Their amped-to-ecstatic guitars aren't some security blanket, some reactionary withdrawal into comfortably dumb nostalgia. In Finn's vision, rock & roll may be about redemption; you'll just have to go through Hell to get there.

Any way you want it, that's the way you need it, that's 
the way the Hold Steady brings it.

"I wanted this record to end hopefully," Finn says, "in that final last scene of a girl coming back to the church. There's an element of forgiveness and reconciliation in faith. Then you can move on. Redemption is a big word. It looks good in print, I guess."
