Anathema Announce Autumn European Ambient Acoustic Tour

Friday, 10 August 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Anathema will unplug for a series of live dates across the UK and Europe later this year.

The band will head out towards the end of September as four-piece, with Daniel and Vincent Cavanagh along with Lee and John Douglas playing three shows in continental Europe, followed by stops in Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow and London, where they'll perform a special concert at Union Chapel for record label Kscope's 10th anniversary celebrations. Guitarist Daniel said: 

"Welcome to a new Anathema experience: Ambient Acoustic.

"In exploring what we might do to expand the music still further, out of thin air came the idea to arrange music in a ‘third way’, in the space between the acoustic band and the live rock band.

"With ‘ambient acoustic’ we feel more free to explore many textures, mixing live loops, piano, strings, percussion, electronics, guitars and voices, all within the essence of the songs and the emotions they carry.

"We hope you enjoy this next chapter of the story, the journey of discovery, of searching for something that can never really be found."

Tickets are on sale now, while support acts are to be announced in the coming months. 

Anathema Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Mon October 01 2018 - LEEDS Brudenell Social Club
Tue October 02 2018 - LONDON Union Chapel
Wed October 03 2018 - MANCHESTER Deaf Institute

Fill In The Gaps: Anathema Evolve Further On 'The Optimist'
Fri 09 Jun 2017
First impressions count for a lot in the music business. If an artist nails a marketable aesthetic on their debut, it can dictate the direction of their entire career. That perhaps explains why Liverpool collective Anathema aren’t recognised as one of the greatest alternative rock bands to come out of the UK in the last three decades.
Toy - Happy in the Hollow (Album Review)
Thu 31 Jan 2019
Toy’s third album, 2016’s ‘Clear Shot’, showed that the Brighton quintet had more up their sleeves than homages to their influences, the most obvious of which was Krautrock. Those hypnotic, motorik beats still remained, but there was a more experimental element, one that kept a foot in their past while thrusting another in the direction of dreamy psychedelics that would have been admired by Syd Barrett.
White Lies - Five (Album Review)
Thu 07 Feb 2019
Photo: Steve Gullick After 2016’s brilliant guilty pleasure ‘Friends’, London’s most obvious ‘80s worshippers White Lies had a task on their hands to maintain such high standards. Their fifth album continues the recent trend of adopting the decade’s glitzier keyboards, with fewer danceable moments than before. It also also does little to alleviate accusations of unoriginality, this time even down to the album’s title: 'Five'.
