SikTh announce departure of vocalist Justin Hill

British metal titans SIKTH have announced that vocalist Justin Hill will be leaving the band after their performance at Camden Rocks Festival this weekend.

Justin commented on his departure:

“It’s been a privilege to be part of SIKTH, I never expected the great response we had to the reunion in 2014 and for things to kick off the way they have. It’s been great to work with the guys again, tour with some amazing bands and play to fans old and new.

Now SIKTH are ready to step things up a notch and fully focus on the next chapter I’m afraid its time for me to bow out. My production and mixing career are still my priority so unfortunately I’m unable to give the band the time and commitment that’s needed going forward. I’m chuffed to bits that SIKTH have the opportunity to move onto bigger things and I don’t want to hold them back from doing all the shows offered due to my schedule.

Goes without saying that I fully support the rest of the guys and want nothing but great things for them in the future. I’ve had an awesome time with the band so thanks to everyone involved for all the good times.”

Joe Rosser of ALIASES is set to replace Justin Hill.

SIKTH will be headlining Camden Rocks Festival at The Underworld on Saturday, with the band performing at 9:15pm.
