Upcoming Events for Streetlight Manifesto

Streetlight Manifesto is an American ska punk band from East Brunswick Township, New Jersey.

They released their first album, Everything Goes Numb, which was distributed by Victory Records, on August 26, 2003. The band headlined their first concert at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey on December 9, 2003. Several of Streetlight Manifesto's members were well known in the New Jersey third wave ska community for their roles in past ska punk bands from that area. The lineup included Catch 22's Tomas Kalnoky, Jamie Egan, Mike Soprano, and Josh Ansley, as well as One Cool Guy's Stuart Karmatz, Pete Sibilia, Dan Ross, and Chris Paszik.

The lineup has since gone through several changes, and as of 2007 consists of Matt Stewart on trumpet, Mike Brown on alto and baritone saxophone, Jim Conti on alto and tenor saxophone, Tomas Kalnoky on guitar and vocals, Pete McCullaugh on the bass guitar, Mike Soprano on trombone, and Chris Thatcher on drums. Kalnoky and Conti are the only remaining members from the original lineup that played on the band's first album, "Everything Goes Numb". However because Jamie Egan played both trumpet, and trombone on the album, Mike Soprano joined to play trombone at shows, while Egan played trumpet, and Paul Lowndes who recorded drums on the album never toured with the band. So Soprano, and Thatcher are original from the original touring lineup.

Although the band has enjoyed no mainstream commercial success, they have received acclaim in alternative music circles, and their debut album was in's top 100 items, even three years after its release.[citation needed] Their concerts have often sold out, and their first few shows at Rutgers and The Stone Pony not only sold out, but had fans coming from as far away as Minnesota and Canada.[1] Their second album, Keasbey Nights, a reworking of Catch 22's Keasbey Nights was released on March 7, 2006.

In August the band website was redesigned and has since been updated several times, announcing the completion of their newest studio album titled Somewhere In The Between and posting song samples. They also revealed that the first official Streetlight music video is forthcoming, as well as a US headlining tour starting November 7 and international tours in the near future. On September 7 it was announced on the band's website as well as Victory Records' website that the release date for the album will be November 13th. The full track listing and album cover were also released.
