Of the new record Dan Weller, SikTh’s guitarist and producer, says:
“Ever since SikTh was formed way back at the turn of the century we’ve tried to self improve as musicians and as song writers. We take our music very seriously. This record feels like the one we’ve always wanted to make. We spent over a year writing it and pushed ourselves extremely hard – sometimes too hard. Opacities was the rebirth of SikTh but ‘The Future…’ is our statement – I want this album to define us. I don’t care how over ambitious it sounds – we want this record to be heard by every metal fan on the planet.”
The Future In Whose Eyes? features the first ever guest vocalist on a SikTh album: Peripheryvocalist Spencer Sotelo joins Mikee W Goodman on ‘Cracks Of Light’, following the band’s support slot on Periphery’s US arena tour in 2016 . “They’re really nice people, everyone on that US tour felt it was the best one they’d been on,” Mikee explains. “We actually got him down to R&R Studios in Uxbridge where we made the album. I really like Periphery and especially love Spencer’s voice, he’s not your usual djent singer, and he’s very much a spiritual man. He knows his and mind well and so we nailed the song really quicky”.
The Future In Whose Eyes? will be released on deluxe 12″ hardbook, CD, gatefold 180g heavy weight vinyl and digital download, with ‘Vivid’ available as an instant download. Pre-orders are available here: http://found.ee/The_Future_In_
