, Staff

Reel Big Fish and Streetlight Manifesto will continue their co-headlining tour through the winter. After a successful summer outing, the ska and punk favorites will return to the road later this month. The two will return to Massachusetts for a show at The Palladium in Worcester on Saturday, November 26. Tickets for the concert are now on sale through Tickets.com for $21. Lionize and Rodeo Ruby Love will open the show.

Fans of Reel Big Fish can probably expect a set filled with fan favorites as the band continues tour in support of their greatest hits compilation, A Best of Us for the Rest of Us, which was released in July 2010. Due to the fact that their former label Jive Records owns the master recordings of their older material, Reel Big Fish re-recorded many of the tracks for the compilation, which also includes four bonus tracks of new material. Earlier this year, the group announced that multi-instrumentalist Scott Klopfenstein (trumpet, guitar, keyboard, vocals) would be leaving the band to focus on raising his family. Saxophonist Matt Appleton, who filled in for him on the band’s 20th Anniversary Tour, and has since been declared a permanent member.

Streetlight Manifesto are working on their next studio album, through no release date has been announced. Their most recent release was 2010’s 99 Songs of Revolution, a series of covers from bands including Radiohead, Bad Religion and Paul Simon. Frontman Tomas Kalnoky (also known as Toh Kay) will release a solo album, Streetlight Lullabies, on November 22. The album will feature acoustic solo versions of Streetlight Manifesto songs.
