Streetlight Manifesto decide it's time for a break

Streetlight Manifesto has been struggling to get out their latest album "The Hands That Thieve". After many arguments and runarounds with their soon-to-be ex-label, the album has finally gotten it's release date. 

After nearly a decade, the guys are happy to say that they're "free of a very contentious, very unhappy relationship" with their record label, but they're also happy to call it quits. On touring, that is.

They stated on their website that they will never stop making music together, but the time has come to move on. Some of them will be exploring other musical avenues while others will be settling down and just being happy to be home. 

So, to finish out 10 straight years of tours, Streetlight Manifesto presents: The End Of The Beginning Tour, a year long, multi-country farewell tour and while they're not saying goodbye to live events forever, they did say it's likely they will never return to most of the places they're appearing this year.
