The Hold Steady announced an oral history book, The Gospel of The Hold Steady: How a Resurrection Really Feels to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Credited to Michael Hann and The Hold Steady, The Gospel of The Hold Steady: How a Resurrection Really Feels is set for publication on July 25 via Akashic Books.
News of the new book arrived just days before The Hold Steady release their ninth studio album, The Price of Progress, on Friday, March 31. Press materials for The Gospel of The Hold Steady detailed the book further:
The Gospel of The Hold Steady: How a Resurrection Really Feels addresses all the triumphs and setbacks of The Hold Steady’s two-decade career – from high times to near deaths, from the brink of splitting to their current renaissance – told through interviews with everyone who has played in the band, and those who have worked with them over the course of their career. The volume includes over 200 photographs and images along with essays by writers Michael Hann, Rob Sheffield, Laura Barton, and Isaac Fitzgerald, as well as the thoughts and memories of “The Unified Scene” – the devoted fans who have helped fuel and define The Hold Steady’s identity over the past 20 years.
The Gospel of The Hold Steady: How a Resurrection Really Feels also has a Limited-Edition Preorder Package option which boasts autographs from the band and more. Head here for more info.
