After a four-year spell, The Hold Steady will return this March with their sixth studio album entitled Teeth Dreams. The group fronted by Craig Finn recently revealed "I Hope This Whole Thing Didn't Frighten You", the first heavily distorted, fist-swinging single released off the new record.
"We were looking to make a big rock record," Finn told Rolling Stone. "Maybe it's less wild but in some ways that makes it a bigger record."
In the single below, this "big rock" progression is palpable as Finn guides the licked up melody with a commanding vocal presence. Listen to "I Hope This Whole Thing Didn't Frighten You".
