Teeth Dreams is the sixth album from one of America's most acclaimed rock bands. This is their first release in four years. Their last, Heaven is Whenever, came out in May 2010. The songs on Teeth Dreams came together over the past three years and many of them went through significant changes along the way. Guitarist Steve Selvidge joined The Hold Steady for the Heaven is Whenever tour and Teeth Dreams is the first THS release where Selvidge participated in the writing and recording. A number of the songs were written at sessions in Memphis, where Steve lives. The album was produced and mixed by Nick Raskulinecz. Nick has produced records by Foo Fighters, Rush, Alice in Chains, Deftones, Ghost and more. Teeth Dreams was recorded and mixed at Rock Falcon Studios in Franklin,TN. It is the first record that THS has made outside of the NYC area.
Formed in 2004 and originally from Minneapolis, MN, The Hold Steady are a critically acclaimed rock band with a vibrant mixture of punk ethos and classic rock pedigree punctuated by lyrically dense storytelling and guitar riffs. The band's narrative based songs have scored them millions of fans worldwide. In May 2005 The Hold Steady were the first rock band to grace the front page of The Village Voice in 15 years. Their 2006 album, Boys and Girls in America was ranked No. 8 on the Rolling Stone Best Albums of 2006 list, and No. 1 by The A.V. Club. Pitchfork wrote of the album, "[Craig Finn] not only has a commanding, rousing voice but he also says something worth hearing, displaying gifts for both scope and depth that are all too rare in contemporary rock - indie or mainstream."
