Brooklyn-born rockers The Hold Steady have announced plans for a series of shows to commemorate their 2006 breakout album, Boys and Girls in America, which officially turns a decade old this October. The live shows will double as an old-school Hold Steady reunion, with former keyboardist Franz Nicolay—who left the band shortly before the release of their fifth studio album, Heaven is Whenever—rejoining the band for their mini-tour.
While The Hold Steady had plans to release full tour details along with this announcement, they were forced to delay the celebratory news until May 18—we will have it for you then. “One apology,” the band wrote in their Facebook post. “The plan was that today was going to be the day releasing the precise info on everything. Unfortunately, some details with our co-conspirators changed and it required waiting two more weeks on the details.”
In addition to announcing their reunion tour, the band shared that fans would soon be able to get their hands on vinyl reissues of Almost Killed Me and Separation Sunday this fall, via Frenchkiss Records.
