Anathema fans can now get amped! The British group just revealed details about their new album. The follow-up to Weather Systems will be called Distant Satellites and is due to be released on June 9th via Kscope. Mark the date on your calendars and be ready. Distant Satellites was recorded at Cederberg Studios in Oslo, with producer Christer-André Cederberg and the artwork was created by Korean new media artist Sang Jun Too and based around his Distant Light Installation. Also, Steven Wilson mixed a few songs on the record. Lets hope Anathema can truly deliver us another masterpiece album.
The band released a statement on their new album:
“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.
“There is beauty, intensity, drama, quietude, and extra musical dimensions that the band have previously only hinted at. All built on the song writing chemistry of Daniel, John and Vincent ~ and the haunting voice of Lee Douglas.
“Produced and mixed once again by our very own Christer-André Cederberg (Weather Systems, Universal) and with some songs also mixed by the unassailable Steven Wilson, It’s a special and unique release for the band. Anathema hopes the fans get as much joy from listening to and feeling the music as we did in creating it.”
