Streetlight Manifesto having problems with Victory Records

By Chris Marshman

Streetlight Manifesto release their album ‘The Hands That Thieve’ today, however this comes with the news that they are having some trouble fulfilling orders for physical copies of the album due to an issue with Victory Records. Read a statement from the band below.

Hi guys

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.

Tomas
