Anathema announce shows to test new music

Anathema have revealed that they have been busy writing their eleventh studio album. They have also announced a string of shows across the UK in order to road test the new music.

Vocalist Vincent Cavanagh said: “There’s something about the immediacy of playing something new before an audience who are hearing it for the first time. There’s a sense of urgency and excitement to it. Also you know instantly whether or not something is working. Quite often in the past we have ended up changing previously recorded songs and arrangements after playing them live. We thought we’d try it the other way around for once.”

Anathema will be going into the studio at some point after the tour. Other than this the band are remaining tight-lipped about any more regarding the eagerly awaited follow up to 2014’s Distant Satellites.

Tickets go on sale for the tour on 8th August here. Check out all the dates below.
