Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.

Description


The Hold Steady's ninth studio album, The Price of Progress, leads with a heavy but nimble single following a character dreaming of stardom while slipping into madness. By the final verse of “Sideways Skull,” the narrator reveals that he himself is in a band called The Price of Progress, that has "a reputation as New Hampshire’s hardest.” As the song ends, still “no one listens/ But it’s sure nice to meet some fellow musicians.”

Limited to 750 copies, the VMP exclusive version of The Hold Steady's The Price of Progress is pressed on Metallic Silver vinyl at Independent Record Pressing (IRP). The 1LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket.
