BRITISH METAL BAND SIKTH RETURN WITH THEIR FIRST FULL-LENGTH ALBUM IN 11 YEARS

"SikTh pushed me in to the progressive genre. Death of a Dead Day is my jam" - Spencer Sotelo (Periphery)

A keystone in the progressive metal genre, SikTh's legacy gave the inspiration for bands like Protest The Hero, Periphery, TesseracT and Animals As Leaders following their hiatus in 2007. Now in 2017 the intense and enigmatic frontman Mikee Goodman is joined by Alias' vocalist Joe Rosser for a unique double-vocal attack. The band also welcomed guest singer Spencer Sotelo from Periphery as SikTh's first ever guest performer on an album, cementing the relationship formed between the bands on their US tour in 2016.

Following their reformation at the UK's legendary Download Festival in 2014, SikTh have been teasing the metal scene with the release of mini-album Opacities in 2015, a support tour in the UK for Slipknot, their first ever US tour as the main support for Periphery, and a 6-week tour at the beginning of 2017 as the main support for Trivium in Europe and the UK. The band also released a deluxe edition of their most popular album Death of a Dead Day on its 10th anniversary through Peaceville in 2016.

Kicking off The Future In Whose Eyes? album campaign in February, the single "No Wishbones" became an instant favourite with streaming platforms; Spotify placed the track on their popular curated playlists "New Metal Tracks", "Top Tracks in Metal" and "Got Djent?"; iTunes selected the single for their "Hot Tracks in Metal" promotions in both the UK and the US; and Deezer chose the track for their "Metal New Releases" playlist.

Mikee commented on the new album: "Personally I feel this is our best album yet. The band have made incredible music, brutal, technically warped and also some psychedelic moments... we've done something special here." The SikTh frontman explained the artwork, created by Meats Meier, whose credits include the film "Hellboy" and TOOL: "Meats Meier is an absolute genius, a visionary and a pioneer. We wanted something really special and we got it; the inspiration was the title itself, the constant evolution of humanity and the self destructive nature of man.”
