Description

Anathema return in June with distant satellites, their brand new studio album

"Distant Satellites is the culmination of everything Anathema been working up to so far in our musical path. It contains almost every conceivable element of the heartbeat of Anathema music that it is possible to have" ? Anathema 2014

Distant Satellites is the highly anticipated follow up to Anathema's critically acclaimed 2012's Weather Systems and last year's stunning concert film Universal directed by Lasse Hoile.

Distant Satellites was recorded at Cederberg Studios in Oslo with favoured producer Christer-André Cederberg. Alongside additional mixing by Grammy Nominated Steven Wilson, Anathema also brought in the legendary services of Dave Stewart (Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson) to create the new album's extraordinary orchestral arrangements.

Anathema has been at the forefront of the UK rock movement since its inception, influencing a myriad of bands to follow. What began as a pioneering journey of melodic heavy music has outgrown all genres and limitations, fearlessly exploring new territories and new ways to express feeling through sound and now their star is rising ever higher.

Distant Satellites will be instantly recognisable to Anathema's global army of ardent disciples as another chapter in this band's remarkable story. With a few strides into uncharted territory, not least the electronica-driven surge of the album's stunning title track, distant satellites will surely be recognised as not only their finest album to date but as one of the most celebrated and lauded albums of 2014.

A gleaming anthology of beautifully crafted songs, performed with vitality, verve and utmost passion, once again demonstrating the sublime, instinctive song writing talents of the Cavanagh brothers and drummer John Douglas.

Complementing the album is the beautifully ethereal artwork created by Korean new media artist Sang Jun Yoo, based around his Distant Light Installation in New York.

Having returned from a sell out North American tour with HIM in March 2014 Anathema and are gearing up to begin extensively touring distant satellites starting with Australian dates, selected summer festivals and a tour across the Europe in the autumn.

This double disc edition of the album features a 5.1 surround sound mix courtesy of Jens Bogren (Opeth), and comes housed in a media book with 24 page booklet.
