Jan. 15 |  Album Announcement & Samples

Long time, eh?

 

So this is the time when we should be shipping out all the pre-orders for “The Hands That Thieve” and “The Hand That Thieves” but as most of you who have been posted next to your mailboxes have figured out – it hasn’t shipped yet.  “Streetlight, is there a silver lining amongst all this placating?” you ask – and the answer is – YES.

The album has been mastered and as proof – today we proudly provide you with the first of many samples of the new Streetlight Manifesto record.  Here are two, minute-long clips of two songs that you’ll hear on “The Hands That Thieve”.

The release date is currently up in the air, though.  When we hear from Victory Records about when they’ll be releasing the album, we will be right there to let you know.   We hope to know the release date within a week or so.

We understand patience has been worn thin but we stand by this record and the work that has gone into it with such unwavering aplomb that our excitement should match yours when you hear the samples.  But at the same time, we understand that you’ve all been very understanding with us and our delays, and deadlines that have come and gone, that we would like to compensate you accordingly.  With every single pre-order (from the RISC Store) of the new album of any size (from the CD by itself to the Mega Bundle) we will be including a free live EP CD that we recorded on the “Hands That Thieve Tour” last fall.  The free live EP will be an exclusive RISC Store gift and is the only professional live Streetlight Manifesto recording to date.

    THE SOMEWHERE IN THE BETWEEN TOUR 2017
    Hello All! Today we are excited beyond words (spoken, not written, clearly) to announce a celebration of the fact that our album Somewhere In The Between has been out for TEN YEARS. TEN FRIGGING YEARS. There are nine year olds that aren’t even that old. Even some eight year olds! To commemorate this pseudo-milestone, we’re announcing our touring for the year will revolve around this album in particular. Today, we announce THE SOMEWHERE IN THE BETWEEN TOUR 2017. Every night on this tour will include every single song from SITB, plus a bunch of other songs from our other albums and a few b-side type cuts (since, as you know by now, we play long ass sets). Yes, EVEN BLONDE LEAD THE BLIND, for which we apologize in advance.

    If you’re foolish enough to think that that’s all we have up our sleeves for 2017, then you are truly a foolish fool who thinks relatively foolishly. YOU FOOL. Expect more announcements in the coming months, of varying degrees of relevance and significance.

    DATES BELOW AND TICKETS GO ON SALE LATER TODAY, FEBRUARY 21!

    You guys usually only see seven doofuses making noises onstage, but there is always a group of hard working, dedicated crew members behind the scenes, making sure our toots and squeaks sound their best as they hit your eardrums. This one goes out to them, past, present and future! THANKS GUYS! Photo by @digitalkloc
