Beloved Platinum-selling band, Toad the Wet Sprocket, has released their latest album, Starting Now”, which is available everywhere you find great music now. This latest project, being released through the band’s own independent label, Abe’s Records, is a collection of material exploring how we manage to find hope after life’s uncertainties that often force a change and challenge us to survive on a new path.

Celebrating 30 years as a band, Toad the Wet Sprocket is still making music and touring with the same spirit of unwavering independence that started it all over three decades ago. Toad the Wet Sprocket share in the kind of musical chemistry that can only come from meeting in high school and writing, recording and touring on albums over the course time. After “Bread & Circus”, they followed with “Pale” in 1990, “Fear” in ’91, “Dulcinea” in 1994, and “Coil” in 1997, as well as some compilations along the way.

While most will still feel the comforting familiarity of the Billboard-charting hits, “Walk on the Ocean”, “All I Want”, “Something’s Always Wrong”, and “Fall Down”, fans will also be well familiar with tracks with lyrics that resonate for so many life milestones like “The Moment”, “I Will Not Take These Things for Granted” and so many more. It is thanks to the enthusiastic support of their fans, that helped spur the release of All You Want and also serves as inspiration for the band to continue touring and play live. Next, the band is set to release their first album in six years, “Starting Now”, available on August 27th wherever you find great music! They will also be touring through 2022 on the “Starting Now” Tour for their first live shows as a band since their 30th Anniversary Tour in 2019.

Also being released today is the band’s latest single from Starting Now”, “Hold On.” The track’s pleading lyrics of finding commonality and hanging onto what is truly important, is a message for the times. Through some of the most trying months of many of our lives, “Hold On” is a positive reminder to us that there is something better on the other side of our troubles and if we give it time, we’ll find the peace we’re all seeking.

In addition to the release of the track, Toad the Wet Sprocket, has also released the official music video for “Hold On.” This live performance based music video brings the full band to the forefront and teases fans for their upcoming tour dates – showing they are still at the top of their game.

Toad the Wet Sprocket will be on the road through 2022 on theirStarting Now” Tour. The tour marks the band’s first time back on the road since 2019.
