The Hold Steady are celebrating their 10th anniversary as a band with the release of their first new album in four years, Billboard reports. Teeth Dreams, which is due out on March 25th, will mark the debut release from Washington Square, a new imprint from the independent record label Razor & Tie.
“We’re really proud of our new record,” said Hold Steady guitarist Tad Kubler. “This is an exciting time for us. Making the new record has been a journey for the band, and the results exceeded even our own expectations. Can’t wait for people to hear it.”
Teeth Dreams will be the sixth LP from the Hold Steady, who released their first album, Almost Killed Me, in 2004 on Frenchkiss Records. The band is set to kick off their “Nights Go on Forever” tour in Memphis on January 29th, wrapping up with a hometown anniversary show in Brooklyn on February 6th and a gig in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on February 7th.
The Hold Steady are also releasing a crowdfunded covers EP called RAGS, proceeds of which will go to the K + L Guardian Foundation to benefit the children of writer and event booker “Jersey Mike” Van Jura, who died in November 2012.
The new Washington Square imprint also has albums by Deaf Havana and Born Cages in the works, and the label is planning a SXSW showcase.
