Anathema’s Australian fans have been waiting patiently for almost 25 years and your innumerable emails and requests have finally borne fruit – Anathema are making their long awaited first visit to our shores! Anathema have been at the forefront of the UK rock/metal movement for a long time. As influential pioneers of melodic heavy music, the band’s forward thinking, intellectual musicianship has earned them accolades such as Classic Rock’s 2010 and 2012 Prog Album of the Year (2010’s We’re Here Because We’re Here was mixed by progressive rock mainman Steven Wilson). Whilst their sound and musical vision has continually evolved, Anathema have always remained true to their original goal of creating meaningful, passionate and honest music. Anathema are an incredible live experience which rightly earned them the award for Best Live Event at the inaugural Progressive awards late in 2013. Likened to fellow progressive acts as Opeth, Porcupine Tree and Dream Theater, Anathema present an aural and visual experience that stimulates all senses. Anathema’s music is created with intent to deeply move the listener - the intertwining melodies of their compositions uplift the soul and they continually explore new territory and new ways to express feeling and emotion through sound. With a rich and storied back catalogue, there will be no shortage of material both new and old on offer including Thin Air, A Natural Disaster, Destiny, Internal Landscapes, Parisienne Moonlight, Dreaming Light, Fragile Dreams and Inner Silence among much more. A chance to immerse yourself in an evening of music with the one and only Anathema may come only once in a lifetime. Tickets are sure to sell out so get yours fast!
