SikTh are back! The Watford mathcore sextet that stumbled upon a sound unexplored, who devised their own Morse code of metal that mushroomed into labyrinthine detours and tangents and that ultimately lead to the birth of the djent metal, and whose legacy gave the inspiration for bands like Protest the Hero, TesseracT, Animals As Leaders and Periphery after their hiatus in 2007, are back. They return with what will be one of the finest albums of 2017 in the form of The Future In Whose Eyes?
The album is due to be released on June 2 on Millennium Night, the newly-created label imprint from Snapper Music, home of Peaceville Records and Kscope.
The vocals were recorded at Goodman's own studio and at Adrian Smith's (Iron Maiden) R&R Studios and this is the first release featuring new co-vocalist and former member of Aliases — Joe Rosser.
The Future In Whose Eyes? features the first-ever guest vocalist on a SikTh album – Spencer Sotelo, singer of Periphery, joins Mikee on the track "Cracks of Light."
The Future In Whose Eyes? will be released in multiple formats, which are available to pre-order here.
Further details regarding live plans will be released soon, as the band is keen to return to North America after receiving a rapturous response upon making its stateside live debut on the Periphery tour in August 2016. Since the band's reformation for 2014's UK Download Festival, they have released their first new music in the form of the Opacities EP, supported Slipknot on their UK tour, Periphery in the U.S., and have just returned from a five-week run across Europe as main support to Trivium and have just been announced to return to the main stage at this year's Download Festival.
