Aug. 22 |  New Album / New Tour – “The Hands That Thieve”

You always get so much time to prepare big announcements – but it’s never enough.  But what we mean to say is…Streetlight Manifesto has a new album.

It is called “The Hands That Thieve”

It comes out November 6th.

Yes, this could all have been one sentence.  But here at Streetlight Manifesto we want our thoughts to be given room to breathe.  With the new album we will also be heading out on a tour of the same name this Fall.  The tour will start October 16th in Toronto and will go over the course of two months throughout the US.  Streetlight Manifesto will be joined by Lionize, Hostage Calm and The Chicharones at different points throughout the tour.  New songs will be played every night alongside the old classics and everything else in the between.

“The Hands That Thieve” tour will also take Streetlight Manifesto to South America for the WROS Festival and to Gainesville for a night at The Fest.
While the tour is already extensive there are still dates and cities being added, so if you don’t see your city listed it’s either being added or there’s a very good reason that you’re going to need to travel a bit.
While this is probably enough news for a while we are excited about some other news we have in store if you are the type to be patient enough to listen.

Keep your eyes and ears posted to StreetlightManifesto.com anPentimentomusic.com for exclusive tracks, videos and news in the coming days and weeks.  We will also be featuring exclusive material on our Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. So treat yourself to those internet places and we will see you soon.

Ta ta.

    THE YEAR WITH NO END TOUR 2016!

    WHY HELLO THERE!

    So for this year’s touring shenanigans, we decided to take a new route: we’re announcing all of our headlining shows for the year (more or less) all at once, here and now. Ladies and gentlemen, we hereby announce THE YEAR WITH NO END TOUR 2016! We’ll be popping up here and there across the country and dabbling a bit into our country’s toque as well, primarily on weekends. OK, so it’s not really a “tour” tour so much as a number of weekends spread throughout the calendar year, but we’re trying here, so stop nit-picking, you scoundrel you.

    As we did last tour, we’ll be gathering ideas for which songs/versions of songs to play before now and the shows, to keep it fresh and interesting for both yourselves and ourselves. As always, eardrums will be dropkicked and shoes will be lost, lyrics will be forgotten, voices will be lost and post-show diner food shall be consumed. In short, life will be good.

    Art this time around has been provided by the incredible Dan Mora, and as usual we implore you to check out his stuff over at www.behance.net/danmora. Tell him what you think of the art! We did! (spoiler: we love it)

    Tickets for all shows listed go on sale TOMORROOOOOOWWWWW!!! (March 2nd) Once again, most of these shows sold out last year, so they’ll likely do the same this year, so DON’T DILLY DALLY.

    Since Streetlight’s early days, we’ve been lucky enough to work with some of our favorite artists on the planet for tour posters and merch. It’s been an honor to work with each and every one of them and we’re proud to show off the hard work of these ridiculously talented individuals. Whether it’s a song or a poster, what we all do is so closely related and complimentary that it’d be virtually impossible to see the whole picture if one was missing. We’d like to call attention to these artists via our social media outlets, and hopefully you’ll be kind enough to check the artists out at their own sites and accounts, to see what they’re up to and support what they do.

    First up is the super awesome artist we’ve worked with most recently for the October 2015 East Coast tour, Teagan White. Her Instagram is @teaganwh and her website is www.teaganwhite.com. Tell her we said hi when you check out her increeeedible portfolio!

    If you’d like to purchase this art as a screen printed poster, please buy it directly from her site at http://teaganwhite.bigcartel.com/product/streetlight-manifesto-fall-2015-tour-ap

    When it sells out there, or if you want the t-shirt or pullover hoodie with this artwork, head over to our shop at http://riscstore.com/search?q=teagan+white

    Thanks for reading and thanks for supporting our brothers and sisters in the arts!
