UK prog masters Sikth will hold a masterclass to share the stories and influences behind their music.
SikTh, the UK’s pioneers of the progressive metal scene are offering a unique experience on 17th September with a masterclass at London’s Boston Music Rooms. Fans will have the opportunity to gain an insight in the writing and recording process behind albums such as ‘Death of a Dead Day’, looking at the inspiration behind these records and hearing interesting facts and tales from these sessions that they’ve never heard before.
Guitarist Dan Weller comments, “We have been making music together since the turn of the century. Before MySpace, Facebook, Spotify, YouTube changed the way music was consumed. In this masterclass we’ll talk about how it all began for SikTh, how the band has evolved and let people in on some of the secrets and tricks that go into creating our music”.
There will be an opportunity to ask the band questions direct in a Q & A session, watch a run down of the gear and equipment the band use, alongside instrumental performances of tracks from the band’s acclaimed catalogue. SikTh will also talk in-depth about their comeback, which began with a surprise reunion at Download Festival in 2014 followed by ‘Opacities’ EP in 2015.
The masterclass will culminate in a meet and greet session. Ticket as are on sale now, click here to buy.
