SikTh played a phenomenal set on the main stage at Download Festival on Saturday and now the band will be hitting the road in December for a headline tour which includes a date at London's Koko.

Mikee W Goodman tells us:

"It's so great how well received our album has been so far. After touring USA and Europe it's a huge buzz to be able to come back and headline UK again. Even more exciting as were going to play so many of the new album songs at the shows."

The dates are as follows with supports to be announced shortly.

Saturday 2nd December: Manchester, Academy 3
Sunday 3rd December: Glasgow, Garage
Monday 4th December: Birmingham, Institute
Wednesday 6th December: Bristol, SWX
Thursday 7th December: Brighton, Concorde 2
Friday 8th December: London, KOKO

Tickets will be on sale from Friday 16th June right here.

SikTh's long awaited new studio album, 'The Future In Whose Eyes?', was released on Millennium Night on 2nd June and has garnered praise across media in the UK and from further afield. The vocals for 'The Future In Whose Eyes?' were recorded by Mikee and and new co-vocalist and former member of Aliases, Joe Rosser at Mikee's own studio and at Adrian Smith's (Iron Maiden) R&R Studios, the guitars and drums at the renowned Monkey Puzzle House studios, produced by the band's own Dan Weller, alongside Adam 'Nolly' Getgood (Periphery) on mixing duties.

'The Future In Whose Eyes?' is also the first Sikth album to feature a guest vocalist. Spencer Sotelo from Periphery joins Mikee on the track 'Cracks Of Light', and to return the favour, Mikee recently joined Periphery on stage during their London headline show at The Forum in May.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
