UK prog metallers Sikth have announced live dates across England and Wales for later this year.

The run of eight shows are billed as The Riddles Of Humanity tour and will see Mikee W Goodman and co kick things off at Stoke’s Underground on September 12 and wrap up at Oxford’s Bullingdon on September 20. They’ll be supported by Liverpool-based outfit Loathe

Goodman says: “We are really excited about this tour, playing places we’ve not visited for many years – excited to go back to Wales too! Plus, we aim to play more new songs from The Future In Whose Eyes? which have previously not be heard on a live stage."

As for the name of the tour and the accompanying poster design – which can be seen below – Goodman explains: “I asked the artist to make artwork inspired by the songs Century, The Narcissist and Riddles Of Humanity

“They went with the themes of mobile phone technology nullifying the mind while confirming to consolidate all our information in the one place. 

“The phone is glorified in the middle with a broken screen. That's their take on it anyway!”

Tickets for the September tour will go on sale from 10am GMT on Friday (April 27) while Sikth have a handful of shows taking place over the coming months.
