Hindsight features old and new favourites from the band’s career, with new arrangements utilising acoustic, electrical and orchestral instruments to construct the deep, emotional landscapes Anathema have become renowned for, including a brand new track, ‘Unchained (Tales Of The Unexpected)’. This album will also feature the beautiful cello playing of Dave Wesling from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. A close friend of the band, Dave previously toured with the band in 2004 and is featured on the DVD ‘A Moment in Time’. The record has been arranged, recorded, performed and produced solely by the band. Anathema have been at the forefront of the UK rock/metal movement for many years. They began their journey as pioneers of melodic heavy music, influencing a myriad of bands to follow them, before outgrowing all genres and limitations as they fearlessly explored new territory and new ways to express feeling through sound. Anathema have gained a sizable worldwide following and much critical acclaim. Having played hundreds of shows in over 30 countries on their ‘Natural Disaster’ tour, they are currently working on the follow up to Hindsight, an album of brand new material entitled ‘Horizons’. This is set to be an album beyond all expectations. Tracklist: Fragile Dreams Leave No Trace Inner Silence One Last Goodbye Are You There? Angelica A Natural Disaster Temporary Peace Flying Unchained (Tales Of The Unexpected) Biography: Anathema have been at the forefront of the UK rock/metal movement for many years. They began their journey as pioneers of melodic heavy music, influencing a myriad of bands to follow them, before outgrowing all genres and limitations as they fearlessly explored new territory and new ways to express feeling through sound. Formed in Liverpool in 1990, the band’s sound, and musical vision has continually evolved over the ensuing years while always remaining true to their original goal of creating forward thinking, meaningful, passionate and honest music. The band’s first four albums, ‘Serenades’ (1993), ‘The Silent Enigma’ (1995) , ‘Eternity’ (1996) and ‘Alternative 4’ (1998) were released on Peaceville Records. Following these four albums the band moved to the now defunct Music For Nations where they released a further three albums, ‘Judgement’ (1999) - dubbed 'timeless' by many magazines across Europe, ‘A Fine Day to Exit’ (2001) and ‘A Natural Disaster’ (2003) which was hailed as ‘darned near essential’ by Metal Hammer. With each release they moved beyond the boundaries of limited scenes and pigeon holes, creating a complex and emotive atmospheric sound. Countless world tours have built up a very loyal international fan base and the ‘Natural Disaster’ tour saw them playing hundreds of shows in over 30 countries, including going down a storm in the UK as the special guests of HIM, playing to over 30,000 people in little over a week. The line-up is really a collective of two families who were quite simply born to do it. Anathema consists of brothers Vincent, Daniel and Jamie Cavanagh, alongside childhood friends John Douglas and his sister Lee, who is an incredible singer in her own right. The line-up is completed by Les Smith, who brings much in the way of production expertise to the band. There is a deeper bond in the group that transcends usual band politics, ego and avarice. They have a shared vision, which is to make the most incredible music they possibly can, and it seems, despite the lavish praise heaped on the band for their past work, they are about to take the whole thing to a new level. In August 2008 the band are releasing ‘Hindsight’ a semi-acoustic album featuring old and new favourites from the band’s career, with new arrangements utilising acoustic, electrical and orchestral instruments. The album is to be released on Kscope, a sister label of Peaceville. Anathema are currently working on the follow up to ‘Hindsight’, an album of brand new material entitled ‘Horizons’. A multi coloured, multi layered work of unbridled emotion, passion and intensity, 'Horizons' is set to be an album beyond all expectations. Whatever it is Anathema are doing, one thing is for sure, you just can't fake it. [ Promotion ] [ Publishing ] [BILD] [BILD]
