The Hold Steady

The Hold Steady's most recent release is 2010's Heaven Is Whenever. The album was produced by Dean Baltulonis, who engineered the band's 'Almost Killed Me' and produced 'Separation Sunday,' and was recorded at Dreamland Recording Studios in Upstate NY and Wild Arctic Studios in Queens, NY, with mixing also happening at Wild Arctic. Singer Craig Finn says 'Heaven Is Whenever' is about "embracing suffering and finding reward in our everyday lives." Piano and keys take a backseat to guitar on the new record, which also gets production help from guitarist Tad Kubler. Recorded in several smaller sessions spread out over a long period of time, the songs on 'Heaven Is Whenever' received the benefit of being tested on the band's recent tours. As Finn says this allowed them to "see what was working and what wasn't. I believe this record benefits from us working at a more deliberate pace."
