When we met up with the Hold Steady at Lollapalooza, Craig Finn told he us hoped Boys And Girls In America would stay off the P2Ps at least a month before it’s 10/3 due date. So far so good. It’s frustrating when your band’s album leaks, Craig explained, not because people are stealing it (“I don’t care if people download it for free!” he claimed, but please don’t take as an invitation) but because an album release should be a big event. October 3rd … and boom!
That said, he did promise “Chips Ahoy!” would soon be made a free MP3. And that day has come!

Word on the street is that PFork’s already given the album a 10.1. You guys dig the single?
