Per I haven't updated this in the last couple of months, the Opacities EP drops on December 4th.

"Philistine Philosophies" is below.

Me likeee. Not dramatically different from their other stuff, although it does seem the production is a bit improved.

I just can't help but now feel more justified in not getting much from so many of the recent Extreme Metal and djent bands that have come since SikTh went on hiatus, since, SikTh are so bloody good anyway (and I feel so much better).

The video itself is kind of crazy, and the animation almost reminds me of Tool.

Pretty excited for this, even if it is just a "mini-album."

6 tracks including a spoken-word track, coming in November.

We are proud to announce that the new mini album will be called OPACITIES and unveil the cover artwork that has been created by Dan Mumford.

MIKEE : "I really love what Dan Mumford has done here. There is a clear divide under the cityscape between the bright over indulgent lights of the riches and then the squalor underneath. The concept of Opacities comes from the layers we see beneath the surface. The undertone of the city. It can relate to anything though whether it be humans or whatever . Also inspired by the hypocrisy in modern culture."

The mini album is made up of 6 songs including one spoken word and is available for pre-order via it is now fully recorded and being mixed by Forrester Savell.

After the November release, we have a December UK Tour scheduled with support coming from Hacktivist and Feed the Rhino.
