Streetlight Manifesto Likely to Tour North-East America in September and October 2009

Though not officially announced (with the exception of one show) on the Streetlight Manifesto website yet, several dates have recently appeared for a small Streetlight tour in America and Canada during late September and early October of this year. The support listed for these dates are Outernational and Broadway Calls, the latter of which have most of the dates on their MySpace. All the currently known dates can of course be found on the Streetlight Manifesto shows page, and hopefully Streetlight will post an update about the tour soon.

Streetlight Manifesto Post First South American Dates

Streetlight Manifesto’s Fearless Music Performance Posted to YouTube

Streetlight Manifesto’s performance of “We Will Fall Together” from Fearless Music TV is now available on YouTube, and it’s a lot faster than the album version. In the update linking to the video Streetlight also say that their second song should be aired this weekend. The Fearless Music MySpace has a page detailing their airtimes and channels in different regions so you can check if you can watch/record it.

Streetlight Manifesto to Tour South America in September 2009

Streetlight Manifesto have announced that they are going to tour South America for the first time in September of this year. The only confirmed country so far is Brazil, but there are apparently one or two more countries on the cards, details of which will be released in “the next few weeks”.

HD Version of “We Will Fall Together” Video

After having their copy of their video for “We Will Fall Together” removed from YouTube a while ago for… peculiar reasons, Streetlight Manifesto have now uploaded it to hdfest.com, where it is streamable at a much better quality (even better than vimeo’s “HD” version). Additionally, it is also available for download, this time as a full 720p HD file. For some peculiar reason both the streaming and the download versions have a near minute long quiet opening shot of the moon instead of the usual few second it lasts, but it is otherwise great quality.

Everything Goes Numb Finally Gets Vinyl Release

Everything Goes Numb cover art Victory Records are finally pressing Streetlight Manifesto’s Everything Goes Numb on vinyl, as revealed by Vinyl Collective yesterday. The standard press will be on red and Vinyl Collective have an exclusive white pressing which is out of 500. In addition they are running a competition giving everyone who buys a copy a chance to win a test press.
It also seems likely that there will be a third pressing, perhaps exclusive to the Victory web store, as there was with Somewhere in the Between, with the obvious choice of colour being black as it is the third colour used for the artwork.
The vinyl is expected to be released sometime in July, though given the delays the SitB pressings experienced it’s probably best not be too expectant.

Streetlight to Play a Few US Headline Dates Before Warped

Streetlight Manifesto have updated their site with the dates of the last few US headline shows they are doing before they embark on the Warped tour. In regards to the current, nearly over, European tour they explained that, due to a personal matter, trumpet player Matt Stewart had to return home, so they have been playing with a short-notice replacement and their song repertoire is, as a consequence, somewhat limited.

Additionally, they had this to say about 99SoR:

As for 99 Songs, sit tight a tiny bit longer. The record is out of our hands now, in terms of recording, so we’re all waiting at this point. We’ll be posting a track list on the site very soon.

First Part of 99 Songs of Revolution out Before Warped Tour

The Streetlight Manifesto site was updated today with news that they will be wrapping up recording and mixing the first part of 99 Songs of Revolution within the next few weeks, and that it will be available (in some form) sometime before the Warped Tour starts. A track listing and additional release info should be forthcoming. In addition Streetlight found some time to record a performance and interview for Fearless TV, and promise to inform us of its air date, so hopefully someone will be able to record and upload it for those of us unable to watch it.

RISC Store Sale

The RISC Store is currently having an “economic stimulus sale”, where everything is reduced by 10%.

So head over there and pick up any CDs you don’t already have, or perhaps treat yourself to a nice print or a hoodie for the cold weather (unless you’re in the southern hemisphere, in which case you’ll probably just want a t-shirt).

Streetlight Manifesto Headlining Europe in March and April, Playing Warped 2009

I apologise for all this being rather old news now but I’ve been busy/apathetic lately. Anyway Streetlight Manifesto are touring Europe again this March and April, including 4 countries yet to be graced by their musical prowess: Greece, Spain, Hungary, and Tomas’ homeland: the Czech Republic. The tour will finish with just two UK dates (seeing as they just gave us a full tour back in December). They will also be playing all the dates of the Warped tour this year, which runs from June until August. Apart from this however they will not be touring the US again this year, instead they intend to hole up to record some new music and plan for 2010.
