PEACEVILLE RELEASES THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF SIKTH'S 'DEATH OF A DEAD DAY' ON CD WITH EXCLUSIVE BONUS TRACKS.
Following the release on Peaceville of SikTh's mini album 'Opacities', the first new music from the forefathers of British progressive metal, since their acclaimed 2006 sophomore album 'Death Of A Dead Day', Peaceville are proud to be re-releasing the album on the 10th anniversary of its original release.
'Death Of A Dead Day', most arguably the bands most popular record, was recorded over a 6 week period in Miami in 2005, self produced with mixing & engineering duties handled by Mike LaPlant (Skindred, Nonpoint, Soil, Dashboard Confessional), Opening track 'Bland street bloom' was a brutal progressive thrash song with vocalist Mikee W Goodman penning lyrics inspired by the gentrification of the UK highstreet. The song also spawned an animated video (directed by Tim Fox) which featured regularly on MTV's Headbangers ball in the US and was heavily played in the UK.
SikTh played their largest headline tour to date in support of 'DOADD' with 'Bland Street..' becoming the bands opening live track for years to come. Their appearance at 2006's Download Festival in 2006 became legendary - the second stage tent was closed due to over capacity and they put on a show that to this day defines their live reputation. It was in late 2007 the band decided to close the book on SikTh and they played their final show to an emotional crowd in London.
In the years that followed SikTh's name and influence was kept alive by bands like Protest The Hero, Periphery, TesseracT and Animals As Leaders. The genre known as 'djent' flourished with many stalwarts of the scene including Meshuggah claiming SikTh gave birth to the movement.
Peaceville presents 'Death Of A Dead Day' CD which features exclusive bonus material, due to be released in a sleevepac with a 12 page colour booklet featuring lyrics and pictures with original cover artwork created by Tim Fox.
Along with the re-release of 'Death Of A Dead Day', this summer sees SikTh embarking on their first ever North American tour they'll be heading out in direct support to Periphery from 4th August to 1st September, following recent headline shows and festivals across the world including Japan, India, Nepal as well as gaining the coveted support to Slipknot on their recent UK tour.
