The Hold Steady have signed to Washington Square, a new label imprint formed by Razor & Tie. The band has signed a worldwide multi-album deal that will see the release of a new studio album Teeth Dreams on March 25.
Rolling Stone has the first song streaming: "I Hope This Whole Thing Didn't Frighten You," so check it out. The New York City-based band The Hold Steady is the first signing to the newly-created label Washington Square, which will include future signings in the indie and alt-rock genres. The Washington Square roster will also include the U.K. rock band Deaf Havana and the New York-based indie rockers Born Cages.
"We're excited for this new chapter," says Hold Steady's Craig Finn. "We're really proud of our new record." Adds the band's 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."
