Crag Finn, frontman of The Hold Steady, has released a new single titled It's Never Been A Fair Fight, with a b-side acoustic version of the new track. The new single comes with Finn about to embark on a UK/Europe tour this month (with support from Laura Stevenson) and, later, more US dates (with support from Cassandra Jenkins).


“‘It’s Never Been A Fair Fight’ is about the extreme difficulty of staying true to the rigid rules of a subculture as you get older,” Finn says in a press release announcing the single. “The character in the song revisits an old peer and finds struggle and disappointment in the place he left behind. I’ve always really loved this song, and people seemed to connect with it on my acoustic tour with Brian Fallon. Excited to be sharing the full band version with the world.”


Watch the song below.


Finn released I Need A New War recently on Partisan Records.
