The last time we heard new music from The Hold Steady, it was on their 2010 studio album called 'Heaven is Whenever.'  Frontman Craig Finn said that album was about the band aging gracefully. After aging gracefully, The Hold Steady is set to released what could be their most-rocking album yet entitled 'Teeth Dreams.' In a Rolling Stone interview, Finn calls the new album "the biggest-sounding, most rock-oriented album to date." Set to drop on March 25, Teeth Dreams will be their first release on the new imprint of Razor & Tie called Washington Square Records.  

In addition to the new album The Hold Steady will release a covers EP called RAGS, which was crowdfunded by their fans via the site PledgeMusic. The EP is all cover songs and it will benefit a foundation in honor of their long-time and loyal fan Mike Van Jura, who passed away unexpectedly in 2012. 

In the meantime, take a listen to a new song from the album Teeth Dreams called "I Hope This Whole Thing Didn't Frighten You" below or via Rolling Stone.
