Falling Deeper, the new release from Anathema was released last week. The album, recorded with a full 26 piece string section, features brand new arrangements of songs from the band’s earliest days as pioneers of heavy music. Classic Rock Prog have described the album as, ‘a more than worthy addition to Anathema’s fine body of work.’
The album entered the UK indie chart at #30 and #8 in the Alternative chart in Holland.
A fresh musical and lyrical approach has transformed songs such as Crestfallen, Kingdom, Sunset of Age and Everwake, which features the incredible voice of Anneke van Giersbergen.
The record has been produced by Daniel Cavanagh and was recorded and mixed by Andrea Wright at the legendary Parr St Studios, Liverpool (where the likes of Elbow, Coldplay and Echo and the Bunnymen have also recorded albums). The orchestral arrangements are from Dave Stewart who worked so successfully with Anathema on We’re Here Because We’re Here.
An extensive video interview with Danny Cavanagh where he discusses the album, the songs on it and plays excerpts on the piano is now on the Falling Deeper mini-site.
Anathema are playing at the A Night at the Union Chapel, a special Kscope evening that takes place on Friday September 30th (full details here)
