Aug. 28 |  New Streetlight Manifesto, Toh Kay Albums

This is exciting.

We are proud to announce that the new Streetlight Manifesto album, “The Hands That Thieve” is now available for pre-order at the RISC Store (www.riscstore.com). It has been many years in the making and we are more than thrilled to present it to you. In addition to the new Streetlight Manifesto record you will see that there is also a new Toh Kay album, “The Hand That Thieves” now available for pre-order and also being released November 6th, via The Pentimento Music Co. For those of you that don’t know, Toh Kay is the stage name of Tomas, singer & songwriter of Streetlight Manifesto.

The new Toh Kay album is a companion piece to “The Hands That Thieve”; all the songs are performed by Toh Kay and his acoustic trio. The albums may have the same song titles, lyrics and chord progressions, but the similarities end there. The album has a laid back, late night, lazy feel – something to put your feet up to, when you’re not quite in the mood for the ball of frenetic energy that is Streetlight Manifesto.

Throughout the years you have asked us what the best way to support the band is – well now is the moment to show that you’ve understood our answer – and pre-order the new albums from The RISC Store. Beyond buying the new music and merch from the RISC Store you can always come out to a show and buy it from us directly. But we are proud to be in charge of our own webstore, where we print and stock our own merch. Literally all the money that comes through our webstore is put back into Streetlight, Pentimento and all associated projects; buying from other companies and retailers usually ends with said companies keeping all or nearly all of the money that should, in our opinion, go back into the process of making the music that we all love. In short: we ask that you deal directly with us.

We have posted many different bundles on the RISC Store where you can pick up both the new Streetlight Manifesto and Toh Kay CD’s as well as some exclusive new shirt designs, hoodie design, and (available only in the MEGA bundle) a limited screen printed poster signed by the artist – Tomas Kalnoky. And, to spice things up – one hundred people will be chosen from the pre-order customers to win a GOLDEN TICKET that will get them into any Streetlight Manifesto or Toh Kay show for FREE via the guest list – in addition those one hundred people will also receive a poster signed by the entirety of Streetlight Manifesto.

We know this is a lot to take in. So feel free to read and reread this aloud and with family and friends or a pet. Thank you for your patience and let us be the last to say – “Finally!”

    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
