Apr. 30 |  Update: The Continued Struggle

Hi guys
It’s with a very heavy heart that I have to announce the following:
1) The Toh Kay album “The Hand That Thieves” has been canceled for the foreseeable future. More details will come to light in the coming days.
2) Due to Victory Records refusal to send us copies of our own new album, there will be another delay in our ability to deliver preorders on time. We hoped to find a compromise with them, up until the bitter end; unfortunately, it just wasn’t possible.

We ask you to once more be patient: we’re working around the clock to find a solution to our gigantic nightmare of a problem. We will be able to fulfill all orders soon, and we maintain that the only way to buy the album without all of the money going to Victory Records (which ironically funds their legal efforts against us) is via the RISC Store.

Thank you for your support during our dark and trying times. We stood up against the largest, meanest, most despised bully in the schoolyard and now we have to face the consequences. Hopefully you’ll stand with us and we can get through this in one piece.

There will be much more information available in the next few days. Thanks.
Tomas

    Thanks to the (seemingly) ENTIRE POPULATION OF CANADA (and half of Alaska) for checking out our set at Amnesia RockFest this past weekend. Consider our once rampant enochlophobia CURED.

    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!
