Anathema returned last year with their new album, ‘We’re Here Because We’re Here’. Awarded Classic Rock’s Prog Album of the Year as well as a host of other accolades, this is the first collection of new material from the band since the 2003 album, ‘A Natural Disaster’. A multi-coloured, multi-layered work of unbridled emotion, passion, and intensity, the new album has been embraced by their legions of fans and the worldwide press.
Formed in Liverpool in 1990, the band’s sound and musical vision has continually evolved over the ensuing years while always remaining true to the band’s original goal of creating forward-thinking, meaningful, passionate, and honest music. With each release they moved beyond the boundaries of limited scenes and pigeon holes, creating a complex and emotive atmospheric sound. The producer, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), has described it as “definitely among the best albums I’ve ever had the pleasure to work on.”
