The Hold Steady may hold the honor of being the most frequented artists to visit the Current Studios.

Having been on a world wide tour in support of Stay Positive for the last year straight, the band will head back to New York this summer to take a much earned break, to water their plants, kiss their girlfriends, do laundry and start thinking about their next CD which they plan to record in upstate New York.

Craig Finn is never at a loss for words, he has a lot to say in his own music so we knew he would make a perfect Theft of The Dial guest host to talk about other people's music.
