British progressive metal forefathers SikTh are to support Slipknot on their imminent UK tour.
The 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!”
SikTh will play the following dates with Slipknot and Suicidal Tendencies:
08th Feb: Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
09th Feb: London Alexandra Palace
10th Feb: London Alexandra Palace
12th Feb: Birmingham Genting Arena
13th Feb: Leeds First Direct Arena
The band released their new mini-album, Opacities, in December last year on Peaceville to critical claim. Recorded at Lincoln’s Chapel Studios and produced by Dan Weller and Justin Hill, Opacities was described by guitarist Dan Weller as a “…more thoughtful, heavier, more refined” record, demonstrated in the video for “Philistine Philosophies”, directed and created by Mikee W Goodman.
