Recorded at The Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY with producer Josh Kaufman and engineer D. James Goodwin, Open Door Policy marks the second LP by The Hold Steady to feature the band’s current six-piece lineup. Additional performers include Stuart Bogie and Jordan McLean on horns, Cassandra Jenkins and Annie Nero on backup vocals, and Matt Barrick on percussion.

“Open Door Policy was very much approached as an album vs. a collection of individual songs, and it feels like our most musically expansive record,” says singer Craig Finn. “This album was written and almost entirely recorded before the pandemic started, but the songs and stories explore power, wealth, mental health, technology, capitalism, consumerism, and survival – issues which have compounded in 2020.”

The Hold Steady is celebrating the 10th anniversary of their fifth studio album, Heaven Is Whenever, with a very special double-album reissue. Heaven Is Whenever Deluxe Edition is available now on black vinyl and limited-edition colored vinyl plus a number of exclusive bundles – including limited edition T-shirts, bandanas, and THS face masks – available now via theholdsteady.net. The newly remastered vinyl version of Heaven Is Whenever Deluxe Edition collects nine rare and previously unreleased bonus songs, and includes liner notes by Drive-By Truckers co-founding singer-songwriter-guitarist Patterson Hood. The digital release of Heaven Is Whenever Deluxe Edition is joined by six additional previously unreleased songs available exclusively at DSPs.

The Hold Steady is: Bobby Drake (drums), Craig Finn (vocals), Tad Kubler (guitar, vocals), Franz Nicolay (keyboards, vocals), Galen Polivka (bass), and Steve Selvidge (guitar, vocals).
