Happy day-long-dinner-day to everyone and may it make your Friday the Blackest. In honor of the dangerous hoards that decend upon stores nationwide tomorrow, we have done our duty to keep you safe and on the internet by making a Black Friday sale at the RISC Store. For just 24 hours - all day tomorrow - use the discount code: BLACKFRIDAY2013 to receive %30 off everything in the store. Stay indoors. It’s safer there.
This is the last full week of The End of The Beginning Tour, folks. Pittsburgh tonight, Buffalo tomorrow and then the final 3 shows Thursday, Friday, Saturday at Starland Ballroom in New Jersey. The Thursday show still has some tickets available if you are thinking about taking that last minute trip to watch a little bit of history and enjoy the merriment. And to ease the pain of the tour train coming to a halt - Toh Kay will be playing two shows in December. More specifically, December 8th in New York City and then the 12th in Los Angeles. Tickets available on the Streetlight Manifesto web page. Get your hankies ready, this is it.
With two weeks until “The End of The Beginning Tour” the Risc Store is having a pre-tour sale so that everyone looks extremely good in their new shirts and such before the band gets to their town. Until Friday at 11:59PM (Pacific Standard Time) everything on the store is %25 off - just use the discount code: PRETOUR. You all deserve this. Pat yourself on the back - go to the Risc Store and live a little.
Oh these new shirts? Yeah - they’re all up at the RISC Store. And that poster? Yeah, it’s there as well. I’ll just leave this here.
End of The Beginning Tour - Final Leg Dates Announced
Here it is folks, the final leg of the final tour. ”The End of The Beginning Tour” has completed its first leg and the remaining dates have been announced and posted. We are once again working with Good Will Guestlist to raise money for charity on this tour. Head over to www.goodwillguestlist.org to pick up one of four tickets that are available per show (they each come with an EOTB tour poster signed by the entire band)- they sell out quickly - so if they’re gone for your city head over to www.streetlightmanifesto.com and get a ticket the old fashioned way. These shows, like many of the just finished leg, will sell out fast so don’t drag your heels on this - join in on the nostalgia and merriment. We finish this whole journey where it started - with two shows at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. So drop out of school / quit your job / divorce your wife - and come out to the shows. s
We are proud to announce that as The End of The Beginning tour begins TONIGHT in New Haven, CT - we have also secured the FINAL two shows that will finish out our last year of touring: two nights, November 15th and 16th at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey. This final two night stand will be called “The End Of The End Of Beginning” and each of the two nights will feature completely unique sets including songs from all of our records and plenty of surprises. Come on out and celebrate the end of 10 years of non-stop touring with us! Tickets available here:
Also, as a reminder, we are starting leg one of our last year on the road tonight! Check the tour dates to see when we’ll be passing through your town and come on out: for the most part, these will be the last times we ever play these cities. Man, that hurts to type. See you at the shows!
It’s with a very heavy heart that I have to announce the following:
1) The Toh Kay album “The Hand That Thieves” has been canceled for the foreseeable future. More details will come to light in the coming days.
2) Due to Victory Records refusal to send us copies of our own new album, there will be another delay in our ability to deliver preorders on time. We hoped to find a compromise with them, up until the bitter end; unfortunately, it just wasn’t possible.
We ask you to once more be patient: we’re working around the clock to find a solution to our gigantic nightmare of a problem. We will be able to fulfill all orders soon, and we maintain that the only way to buy the album without all of the money going to Victory Records (which ironically funds their legal efforts against us) is via the RISC Store.
Thank you for your support during our dark and trying times. We stood up against the largest, meanest, most despised bully in the schoolyard and now we have to face the consequences. Hopefully you’ll stand with us and we can get through this in one piece.
There will be much more information available in the next few days. Thanks.
