That’s right. Everyone’s favorite go to bar-rockers The Hold Steady are tapped in as the next band to make a song for HBO’s acclaimed show Game Of Thrones. Last year The National did it, and now it’s Craig Finn and co.’s turn.
They will perform a song called “The Bear and the Maiden Fair.” Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin wrote the lyrics, and the music is by the shows music man Ramin Djawadi. The song will be released as a Record Store Day exclusive 7″ single on April 20, along with a new song of The Hold Steady’s “Criminal Fingers” as the b-side.
