Anathema are to release a new single, Dreaming Light, on Kscope on June 20th. The single will be available digitally along with Engineers new remix of the track Universal and the video by award winning director, Christopher Kenworthy.
Dreaming Light is the second single to be lifted from last year’s album, We’re Here Because We’re Here. Awarded Classic Rock’s ‘Prog Album of the Year’ in 2010 as well as a host of other accolades, the album was the band’s first collection of new material band since the 2003 album, A Natural Disaster.
A multi-coloured, multi-layered work of unbridled emotion, passion, and intensity, the new album was embraced by their legions of fans and the worldwide press. We’re Here Because We’re Here was mixed by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), who described it as “definitely among the best albums I’ve ever had the pleasure to work on.”
Danny and Vincent from the band have just returned from the USA & Canada with Steven Wilson’s Blackfield where they were performing special acoustic Anathema sets and receiving rave reviews.
