It’s been six years since SikTh — England’s answer to Dillinger Escape Plan — played their final gig. But the band will reunite this summer for a set headlining the Red Bull stage at the 2014 Download festival.
The band parted ways to pursue other projects in 2008.
SikTh were highly influential in their short existence.
All six original band members — Mikee W Goodman, Justin Hill, Dan Foord, James Leach, Pin and Dan Weller — will be back on stage together for a storming headline set at Download, where the band also played in 2003 and 2006.
Guitarist Dan Weller said:
“Some of our greatest memories were playing at Download, so it was the natural place for us to make our return. The truth is we’ve all been dying to play those songs again. Hopefully we can put on an awesome show for the fans.”
SikTh will headline the Red Bull stage at Download on June 14.
