‘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 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 2012’s Weather Systems, recorded and mixed at Cederberg Studios in Oslo, with producer Christer-André Cederberg, with additional mixing by Grammy Nominated Steven Wilson. Produced by Christer-André Cederberg. 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.
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.
