This morning, the Garden State’s favorite Ska-Punk spewing juggernaut, Streetlight Manifesto, announced to fans it future plans which includes the release of a brand new full-length collection of original material titled The Hands That Thieve, the collective’s first album of that kind since Somewhere In The Between dropped in 2007, and coinciding jaunt about the United States that includes a long awaited homecoming performance at Starland Ballroom on November 23rd with Lionize and Hostage Calm.
Tickets for the event go on sale Friday at noon with a modest of price tag of $17.50 plus an unknown amounts of ridiculous “convenience” fees. Pick them up here.
The Hands That Thieve is scheduled to be released into the wild on November 6th, and that announcement, in true Streetlight Manifesto form, did not come without an admittedly long winded statement to fans…a State Of The Streetlight Address if you will. Read it below:
“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.
