Following their reformation at Download Festival in 2014, British progressive metal forefathers SikTh released their new mini-album Opacities in December last year on Peaceville to critical claim.
Now the band are set to keep the momentum going in 2016 by revealing that they will support Slipknot on their UK tour next month. This run of shows will see them playing arenas across the UK as well as 2 nights at London’s Alexandra Palace. Vocalist Mikee Goodman comments:
It’s insane to be supporting someone as huge as Slipknot and playing arenas every night! We’ve never had this kind of opportunity before! I remember when they first came out, they changed the scene. We’re fans, so it’s an honour to be asked to tour with such a band!
