The Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn plans to follow 2017’s We All Want the Same Things with his fourth solo album in Spring 2019, and while things like a title and exact release date are TBA, Craig and his We All Want The Same Things Band (aka Stuart Bogie, Sam Kassirer, Josh Kaufman, Annie Nero, Joe Russo, and new member Cassandra Jenkins) will preview songs from it at an intimate Brooklyn show on January 12 at Murmrr Theatre. Craig says, “We plan to play the whole album, as well as additional songs from the other records. I will be joined by a special extended band- the incredible musicians who helped me make this record.” Tickets go on sale Friday, November 16 at 10 AM with a presale starting Wednesday (11/14) at 10:00 AM.

Before that, Craig is playing the Scott Hutchison (Frightened Rabbit) tribute in Brooklyn in December, and after that, Craig is touring with Brian Fallon in Europe/UK. The Hold Steady also have upcoming shows, including their holiday run at Brooklyn Bowl in December, NJ/CT shows in May 2019, and more.

Craig also recently teamed with The Weakerthans’ John K Samson to cover Gillian Welch’s “Wrecking Ball” for the charity compilation Don’t Stop Now II.
