ouch"03.11.2010 | DO NOT SUPPORT VICTORY RECORDS (UPDATED!!!!!!!)
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.

As a bonus, let's play "GUESS THAT QUOTE"!!!1! Here it is:
"I absolutely believe that allowing people to cherry-pick the tracks they want from each album cannibalizes full-length album sales and is ultimately detrimental to the artists who created the music� It is important for people to experience the entire album. Not just a track(s)."

You probably guessed it, so we'll just go ahead and give you your prize:
Another full, high quality mp3 from our new record! Apparently, Victory chose this as our first single for us, which we found out by seeing it iTunes. Awesome! Thanks guys!~

Here it is."

Don't they have some 99 song series coming out? I'm sure Victory is going to make it very easy for them to release that on another label.

Streetlight sucks anyway, sucks that they signed a deal that let's them get fucked. But I'm glad, hopefully they will stop putting out shitty music.

Victory had one of Streetlight Manifesto's music videos deleted from youtube last year because of "copyright infringment". I guess there's some sort of issue between the two parties.

Dislike Ska as a genre in general. The best ska band around is like being the best at eating shit in my opinion.

Or it's just my opinion? But yeah, go ahead, make the 'troll' 'joke', if it's even considered a joke.

So for your generic response, you sir, deserve this.
