Streetlight Manifesto have announced their last two shows for the year, taking place Nov. 15 and 16 at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. The opening acts for both nights will be Dan Potthast and Mike Park. Each set will be completely unique, with songs from all of their records (and some surprises, we're told). Tickets are on sale from the venue.
They recently released their fifth studio album, The Hands That Thieve, streaming below via Spotify.
To clarify what this all end-of-days talk means, the band wrote:
“We will no longer be touring year round, nor will we be touring much at all anymore. We have decided to step away from the table before we get sick of our favorite meal; we’ve seen enough bands over the years grow old playing the same songs for decades, going through the motions, slowly fading, and more depressingly, continuing on for all the wrong reasons.
As for our actual plans for the future, this is what we have in mind: No more long tours and no more year round traveling. BUT! Streetlight is not actually breaking up, and we have no plans to ever do so, really. As of now, we still plan to play festivals, both in the US and overseas, occasional one-off shows here and there and even sporadic short-run tours. Hell, we may even do an extended tour a few years from now, who can say? One thing is certain, though: we will still make music together.”
That last “long tour” is ongoing now.
