After almost five years of practically nonstop touring, ska/punk/pop veterans STREETLIGHT MANIFESTO are finally planning on taking a break, but not before hitting the road ONE last time. Ready to kick off The Last Tour For A While Tour, they will be planning on adding a few surprises for these dates (which the band has not revealed yet, but will not be unlike their recent back-to-back full album shows in NYC). “We’ve dedicated ourselves over the last half decade to touring relentlessly and thereby put our ‘real’ lives on hold,” explains Tomas Kalnoky (vocals, guitar). “That changes after our upcoming Northeast America/Canada tour, which runs from September 17 (this week!) until our hometown show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on October 4th.”

Supporting their 2007 album Somewhere in the Between on Victory Records, the Streetlight boys have just ended their grueling but raucous fun Summer on the full 2009 Vans Warped Tour. “After this tour, we will be taking a nice long break from touring,” Tomas explains. “We have nothing planned until at least the Summer of 2010, so if you’ve ever wanted to see us live, or want to see us live before mid 2010, come out to one of the upcoming shows!”

In addition, the band has released their second video “Would You Be Impressed?” taken from Somewhere in the Between and animated by Jurjen Bosklopper ( and, as Tomas has said, “was funded entirely by the band, after our label refused to help us make a second video for our record.” The video can be found here:
