“We’ve always maintained that more music would emerge one day and for the first time in years it feels like now is the time” says guitarist Dan Weller.
“We had an amazing time travelling round the World last year. Having a chance to reconnect with our fans was very special for us”.
The as yet untitled EP will be the follow up to the 2006 critically acclaimed album ‘Death of a dead day’ and will see the band enter the studio for the first time in 10 years.
Mikee W Goodman adds ” We did not realise our music had spread so far! I believe we have amongst the most passionate and energetic fans in the World. I am honoured to play to them.” “But what we have been asked most is about new music. My desire to make new SikTh music is as strong as it’s ever been. I can’t wait to get started!”
Recording starts this summer with a November release date penned, it will also be the first time SikTh will make a record without the assistance of a record label.
“Since we have such a good relationship with our fans we decided that funding the E.P via a PledgeMusic campaign was the best option for us and them. We could have signed a deal but it just adds so many complications for a band like us” adds Weller.
In support of the new EP SikTh will also be returning to the stage in December with a string of headline dates in the UK.
