Sikth upgrade EP to mini-album

Sikth have decided to upgrade their next release from a four-track EP to a six-track mini-album.

It follows writing sessions that the band say were “very fruitful,” with the results due in November, to tie in with a UK tour.

Guitarist and co-producer Dan Weller says: “We wanted to give our fans more for their money – the price will be staying the same. We’re in the best place we’ve ever been and the music reflects that. It’s special.”

Frontman Mikee Goodman says of the additional material: “We discussed an extra epic kind of song. I like that our songs can go in many directions. As always I’ll have a spoken-word on there too. We’re enjoying writing this mini-album.”

Pre-orders are being taken now via Sikth’s Pledge page. The band hit the road in December:

Dec 05: Glasgow Classic Grand

Dec 06: Manchester Academy 2

Dec 10: Bristol Marble Factory

Dec 11: Birmingham Academy 2

Dec 12: London Forum

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 (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) 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.
