Sikth Mikee makes video for upgraded tour

Sikth frontman Mikee has made a video to tease their upcoming UK tour – and he’s premiered it exclusively with Metal Hammer.

The band hit the road next month as part of the Download Freezes Over series. Some of the previously-announced venues have changed as demand for tickets required larger rooms.

Mikee put his clip together from live material submitted by fans. He says: “We’ve been so pleased with the crowd responses. It’s incredible to see how passionate people are. The energy feels better than ever and we’re really looking forward to these shows.”

Guitarist Dan Weller adds: “We can’t wait – we feel like we’re playing better than ever, and we really want to give everyone a great time.”

Tickets are on sale now. Meanwhile, Sikth’s debut album The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out Wait For Something Wild is to be re-released on October 27 via Spinefarm. The new version of the 2003 title comes as a double-CD with bonus materian and enhanced packaging. A double-vinyl edition is due next year.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
