Streetlight Manifesto reveal plans for new albums, tour

, Staff

With new music on the way, Streetlight Manifesto will bring their fall tour to Massachusetts next month. The veteran ska punk rockers will hit Boston for a show at Royale on Saturday, November 24. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers Hostage Calm and Lionize, are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $20.

The Hands That Thieve, Streetlight Manifesto’s fifth studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s 99 Songs of Revolution: Vol. 1, will hit stores on November 6. In addition to the new Streetlight Manifesto album, an acoustic version of the album is being released by frontman Toh Kay called The Hand That Thieves. Both will be released on the same day but only the band’s album will be released through Victory Records. Kay’s album will be released through the band’s own label called Pentimento Music Company. Streetlight Manifesto and Victory Records have been at odds over contract obligations and royalties. Earlier this year, the band asked their fans to boycott the long-running Chicago-based label.
