Kscope is pleased to announce the forthcoming semi-acoustic album from UK band Anathema. 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.
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.
Hindsight will be released on CD by Kscope on August 25th 2008 and will be available to download from August 18th.
Anathema will be reuniting with the other two major pioneers of northern heavy music, Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride for two special shows later this year.
