The Hold Steady Start Tour

For those of you who have been waiting for the Hold Steady to start playing live again, the wait is over. Craig, Tad, Moustache Guy, and everyone else will be spending most of February travelling around the southern-most part of the U.S. on a winter holiday tour of the warmest part of the country.

Very wise if you're a northerner, as the band resides in New York (and some members even have roots in the frozen tundra of the northern midwest). The south makes a great get away, and hey, a Hold Steady gig can be a drunken holiday of its own.

After that, the band will go all the way down to Australia to see if Bart Simpson's theory of the toilets flushing in a different direction in Australia is really true. Of course, they'll fit in a few gigs while they're there.

And those of you who go to the shows, you'll hear new music from the band. A statement on the band's web site says "We've been mainly writing for our new record, which will come out at some point this year. The new songs are spilling out and we will be playing a lot of them on our upcoming tour."

The U.S. dates get various combinations of opening acts Swearing At Motorists, Plastic Constellations, and Les Savy Fav; and while in Australia Les Savy Fav and Thunderbirds Are Now! Will! Share! Opening! Duties!
