The Hold Steady will spend at least one week on the road this summer as the band has mapped out an eight-date run for late August/early September. With an appearance at the St. Louis, MO-based LouFest at the center of the itinerary, the leg will launch on August 24th in Milwaukee. From there, Craig Finn and co. will hit Chicago and Omaha before playing the aforementioned LouFest on August 27th. They’ll then wrap up their travels with shows in Louisville, Atlanta, and Carrobo, and Washington, DC. Find the complete itinerary below.

An issued press release gives no indication if a new album is on the way, but Finn did recently play three new solo acoustic songs for Minnesota Public Radio. Check out the clip for “One Single Saviour” below (via P4k).
