    The Hold Steady has revealed the details behind its fourth full-length. Due out on July 15 through Vagrant Records, Stay Positive features Patterson Hood of Drive-By Truckers and such indie rock icons as J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) and Doug Gillard (Guided By Voices).

    "Four records in, you're thinking, 'what have we done before?'" Finn told Billboard.com. "What should we do here? You have these initial habits, but you're fighting those—and that's healthy, to make things sound different."

    "We've tackled the big huge rock riff," added guitarist Tad Tubler, alluding to such albums as 2006's Boys and Girls In America. "And I think we wanted to extend what we're used to doing. Step out of our safety zone."

    The Hold Steady plan on hitting the road hard in the late summer following the record's release.

    Stay Positive:

    1. Constructive Summer
    2. Sequestered In Memphis
    3. One For The Cutters
    4. Navy Sheets
    5. Lord, I'm Discouraged
    6. Yeah Sapphire
    7. Both Crosses
    8. Stay Positive
    9. Magazines
    10. Joke About Jamaica
    11. Slapped Actress
