The Hold Steady are doing their second annual Brooklyn Bowl holiday run this week -- from Wednesday (11/29) through Saturday (12/2) -- and ahead of the shows, they have released two new songs, "Entitlement Crew" and " Snake In The Shower." Here's what the band writes:

Hey Everyone,

The four shows at Brooklyn Bowl are pretty much upon us. We are calling this year “Massive Nights” and we are predicting massive things indeed.

In anticipation, we are sharing with you two new songs that we recently wrote and recorded:

1. Entitlement Crew
2. A Snake In The Shower

We recorded these in Brooklyn just this month. We hope to play them at the shows, so we thought we’d share them in case you want to sing along.

These will be available for the fans here on Bandcamp for this week, and next week we will make them available via the major digital music providers.

If you choose to download these two songs, a donation will be made to benefit the K+L Guardian Foundation. ALL monies received from downloads will be transferred to the K+L Guardian Foundation.

The K+L Guardian Foundation was formed to benefit "Jersey" Mike Van Jura's children after he suddenly passed away in November 2012 at only 36 years of age. Jersey Mike was the unofficial leader of The Unified Scene.

You can stream and download the tracks starting RIGHT NOW on our Bandcamp page!

Thanks for Listening!
Thanks for Understanding!

Stay Positive!
