The Hold Steady will begin recording a new album within the next few months, reports Rolling Stone.
According to the publication, the Brooklyn band began working on the follow up to 2010′s ‘Heaven Is Whenever‘ last November, and are now close to finalising plans to enter the studio.
“The Hold Steady have completed roughly a dozen songs for the new album since they began writing in November, Finn says, and they’ve scheduled time at an Austin rehearsal space to work on more material,” the paper states.
“They hope to make enough progress to book studio sessions by as early as June. No decision has been made yet about where the band will record the LP or who will produce it.”
Meanwhile, when questioned on the direction of their new material, frontman Craig Finn told Rolling Stone: “This is in the same vein of the kind of songs that we had a lot of on the last record, of an older and wiser person saying to someone else, ‘You know, this might be some good advice.’”Just Published:
