Victory Records has had Toh Kay’s album “The Hand That Thieves” cancelled and are not allowing the record to be released as planned. The album, an acoustic companion to Streetlight Manifesto’s “The Hands That Thieve,” has been legally dancing in the air for weeks as tensions between Streetlight and Victory reach an all-time high.
The band released this statement this morning:
“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.”

That being said, today’s release of “The Hands That Thieve” marks the end of the band’s contract with Victory. Check out our review of the album right here.
