Streetlight Manifesto announces 20th anniversary “Keasbey Nights” show

Ska super-heavyweights Streetlight Manifesto have announced plans to play a 20th anniversary show celebrating the legendary “Keasbey Nights” album. The band will celebrate by playing the single most played album in my collection from top to bottom.

Check out a personal favorite below.

In case your unaware “Keasbey Nights” was originally recorded by New Jersey ska legends Catch 22, “way back in 98, yo”. A few years later Tomas Kolnocky left the band to focus on higher education and upon his completion of said task, brought the world the awesomeness that is Streetlight Manifesto.

Streetlight Manifesto infamously re-recorded the masterpiece and somehow made it better? At the behest of Victory Records (ahem who they later sued and won). After many years of trying to avoid the elephant in the room the band has announced they will play this gem in it’s complete amazingness on May 5, at the Pine Belt Arena in Toms River, NJ. Act fast this bad boy will sell out quickly! 

MU330 stream new single “Don’t Worry Don’t Stress”

California ska band MU330 have released a brand new song called “Don’t Worry Don’t Stress.” The single was released in response to the recent events in Charlottesville, VA, including the rise of neo-nazi groups. In conjunction with Asian Man Records, all of the proceeds generated from this single will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center in the fight for peace worldwide.

A statement from the band reads:

MU330 rejects the violence and hate speech of alt right nazis in Charlottesville. White supremacy must be stomped out and uprooted from this country. Let’s throw these tired ideas in the garbage once and for all. There should be no safe space anywhere on the political spectrum for a group of people that advocate genocide, anti-Semitism, and the oppression of minorities. As a country, we need to stop defending such vile behavior. This has to stop, and our president must be held accountable for defending such hateful ideology. Are you thinking, “wait, I’m a conservative and I’m not a racist!”? That’s great! The good news is that you can be a conservative while rejecting nazis and a racist president that defends them.

100% of all donations from downloading this new MU330 tune will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Peace, MU330

Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) found dead at 41

Man, It really is hard to deal with a loss like this. While not punk rock, Linkin Park was one of the most influential alternative bands of the early 2000’s. We are deeply saddened here at Dying Scene to hear Chester Bennington has committed suicide at the age of 41. Law enforcement sources are reporting that the singer hanged himself at a Los Angeles private residence in Palos Verdes Estates. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.

Linkin Park last released One More Light earlier this year. The album had a different sound from their previous efforts, causing backlash from fans. You can give the track “Heavy” a listen below.

Streetlight Manifesto announce “Somewhere in the Between” 10th anniversary tour

Ska-punk veterans Streetlight Manifesto have announced a US tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of their album Somewhere in the Between. Check out the tour dates below to see if there’s a show near you.

Here’s what the band had to say about the tour and their other plans for 2017:

“Every night on this tour will include every single song from SITB, plus a bunch of other songs from our other albums and a few b-side type cuts (since, as you know by now, we play long ass sets). Yes, EVEN BLONDE LEAD THE BLIND, for which we apologize in advance.

If you’re foolish enough to think that that’s all we have up our sleeves for 2017, then you are truly a foolish fool who thinks relatively foolishly. YOU FOOL. Expect more announcements in the coming months, of varying degrees of relevance and significance.”

It’s been 4 years since Streetlight released their latest album The Hands That Thieve. Could one of those announcements in the coming months be a new record? We’ll keep you posted.

Victory Records suing Streetlight Manifesto for more than $1,000,000

Interesting, though hardly surprising, news coming across the wire from the California-based legal clearinghouse Courthouse News Service. It seems the head honchos at Victory Records continue to have a hair across their collective proverbial asses about Streetlight Manifesto. How big a hair, you ask? A fucking million dollar hair, that’s how big.

According to the lawsuit, Victory Records have Streetlight Manifesto frontman Tomas Kalnoky as the primary target in their crosshairs because of the fact that the band didn’t hold up their end of a decade-plus-old contract that called for them to release four studio albums. As a result of Kalnoky and the band’s “incessant production delays” and “proclivity to procrastinate,” the label have filed suit seeking more than $1,000,000 in damages.

If you’re keeping score at home, Streetlight Manifesto released a total of five albums through Victory Records; 2003’s “Everything Goes Numb,” 2006’s “Keasbey Nights,” 2007’s “Somewhere In The Between,” 2010’s “99 Songs Of Revolution: Vol. 1,” and of course 2013’s highly contested “Hands That Thieve.” However, according to the lawsuit, “Keasbey Nights” doesn’t count toward the contract due to the fact that it’s essentially a re-recorded version of an album from Kalnoky’s old band, Catch 22. “99 Songs Of Revolution” doesn’t count, meanwhile, because it’s a collection of cover songs.

The band and the label have exchanged legal and public blows for the last several years, increasing around the release of Streetlight’s last album, “The Hands That Thieve.” Read more about the suit, which is officially on the record as “Victory Records, Inc. v. Tomas Kalnoky,” case number 1:2015cv09180 at the Illinois Northern District Federal Courthouse, right here. Meanwhile, if you want to catch up on the tumultuous events surrounding the release of “The Hands That Thieve,” you can do so here and here and here and here. Stay tuned to this one…we’ll have more later.
