Craig Finn Goes Solo; The Hold Steady Gear Up For LP6

A few months ago, video surfaced of The Hold Steady's wordy frontman Craig Finn playing a tune called "One Single Saviour" and left the group's dedicated fan base scratching their heads. Rather than a one-off gig, Finn will indeed make a detour into solo LP land, as announced on his recently formed Tumblr. "I'm down in Austin making a record with Mike McCarthy. This one is a solo project," claims his artsy and photogenic 'Do What You Feel' blog.

This isn't the end of his band, however, as his solo news was prefaced with a simple, reassuring sentence: "The Hold Steady begin writing for record #6 in September." Hopefully, the record will be released in the summer like the last two records and sound a little more like the first three records. Either way, follow Finn on Tumblr and Twitter and take a stroll down memory lane with the video for a song from one of the best albums of all-time.
