Streetlight Manifesto announce final Boston show

, Staff

After rocking Providence earlier this month, Streetlight Manifesto have revealed plans to return to New England this fall as part of the final leg on their farewell tour. The veteran ska-punk rockers will bring their “The End Of The Beginning” to Boston for a night at the House of Blues on Friday, October 4. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers Mike Park and Dan Potthast, are now on sale through Live Nation for $17.50.

Earlier this year, Streetlight Manifesto announced that 2013 would mark their final year as full-time touring band. The group has stressed that they are not breaking up, nor do they have plans to do so. They still plan to play festivals, occasional one-off shows and even sporadic short-run tours.

As for making new music in the future, that is also still a possibility. After a contentious relationship with Victory Records, the band said in a message to their fans that they “will happily continue to release records, on our own and on our own terms”.

In April, Streetlight Manifesto released The Hands That Thieve. The band’s fifth studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s 99 Songs of Revolution: Vol. 1. features lead single “The Three of Us” (video is streaming below). The band had planned on releasing an acoustic version of the album by frontman Toh Kay called The Hand That Thieves but has since been forced to cancel the release due their ongoing legal dispute with Victory Records.
