Currently the most talked about band in America, The Hold Steady have just announced an additional London date for their fast selling series of shows in the UK next month.

As well being rated Album of The Month in Uncut, The Hold Steady have been acclaimed in pretty much every end of 2006 albums poll for their third album ‘Boys And Girls In America’ which was released in the US in October last year; from Blender to Village Voice and Billboard to Rolling Stone via David Letterman all singing their garage-rock praises.

In the last issue of Uncut, Editor Allan Jones had the following to say, “Meet America’s best new band…..Acute observation, devastating detail, soiled vignettes. It’s a holy noise that runs from bone-crunching riffs that recall the Stones, Thin Lizzy, AC/DC, the E Street boys and The Replacements to swaggering doo-wop harmonies and hook-filled garage pop….Welcome to the first great album of 2007….5/5” (Album Of The Month)

‘Boys and Girls In America’ is released in the UK on January 22 and you better be quick if you want to catch them live to see for yourselves what all the fuss is about.

The Hold Steady have only played one show in the UK, back in 2004, they supported Les Savy Sav!
