Streetlight Manifesto -vs- Victory
2010-03-11 by Antonio Sanchez | 47 Comments

While it may have been apparent to many that third-wave ska band Streetlight Manifesto and record label Victory Records have had their issues with each other, lead singer Tomas Kalnoky and Co. have released an official statement regarding their lack of support for the much maligned record label.

"Hello there. Just a quick note from us:

If you want to support Streetlight Manifesto by buying a CD, shirt, hoodie, poster, etc etc, PLEASE do not buy anything from Victory Records or their website. Use our online store or come out to a show and support the band by buying merch there. We cannot condone or agree with the actions or ethics of our record label, nor do we want to support them financially through revenue made under the guise of helping Streetlight. Hey douchebag lawyers: This is not libel or slander. We're just letting our fans know how best to support the band if they should choose to do so by buying stuff. That is all."

Hot damn, things are certainly getting intense. I can't give Streetlight enough props for continuously sticking to their guns and being one of the most down to earth bands I've ever seen.

Victory has sucked for a long, long time. As far as I know, Between the Buried and Me and Streetlight are the only two bands worth a damn on the whole label.

Hell yeah I am. Oh wait, we're talking about the feud.

Yeah, this is pretty fucking awesome news.
I just hope they release 99 Songs and go to some other label or something.

what streetlight needs to do is start their own independent label. they certainly have the support to pull it off.

I think Ringworm are on Victory - they're good.

The label had a bad reputation years ago, pity bands don't boycott it.

I love it when bands openly hate their record label. Sticks it to 'the man' ya know.
Streetlight could prob start their own label with much success
