Limited Edition Pink Vinyl LP!
Only 1000 Copies Pressed!
Part Of The Ten Bands One Cause Campaign To Support Cancer Patients & Their Caretakers!

Ten Bands re-issue their albums on limited edition pink vinyl, all for one cause. This is the 8th year for the initiative, and a portion of the proceeds from each shipment will go towards the Red Door Community (formerly Gilda's Club NYC).

The nonprofit's mission is to create a welcoming community of FREE cancer support to bring knowledge, hope, and empowerment to anyone and everyone impacted by cancer and their families. They are committed to expanding their program and broadening their reach to meet the growing needs of individuals living with cancer, in more places, and in more ways than ever before.

Open Door Policy is The Hold Steady's 8th studio album, released on February 19, 2021 via their own label, Positive Jams, in association with Thirty Tigers.

The band recorded Open Door Policy in two different sessions in the back half of 2019. Once again they teamed with producer Josh Kaufman and engineer Dan Goodwin, this time at the Clubhouse studio in upstate NY. Their intention was to create an album that worked as a grand piece, rather than a collection of songs. 2019 was an active year for The Hold Steady - their writing was consistent, and new songs were coming in pretty regularly. The recording process was creative, open and fun.

The band was pretty much done with the record by the time they played a few of the new songs in London the first week of March 2020, as the unease of the pandemic was setting in. Not long after they got back from London, NYC shut down and their 2020 shows were postponed. Over the next months, it became obvious that timing this album's release to specific weekend celebrations wouldn't be a possibility in the near future. But The Hold Steady was still excited to share it.

The songs on Open Door Policy are about power, wealth, & mental health. They're about technology, occupation, consumerism, freedom, fandom and escape. And although the album was written and recorded in 2019, the themes of this record seem to be underscored and highlighted by this year of virus and quarantine.

...[B]y focusing on bringing light and shade into the margins, the Hold Steady wound up with an album that feels vivid and alive; it's as if the songs themselves have a life outside of the recording.
-Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic.com, 4/5 stars
Dark, ominous, but still marching forth with that same bar-rock passion, the Hold Steady feel more unified, making a place for each member within their music's newfound sprawl.
