Anathema has announced the release of Untouchable, a new double vinyl live release via their label Kscope. In May 2012, Anathema released the album Weather Systems and embarked on a lengthy world tour. The European part of the tour opened with a special one-off gig in Bulgaria at the ancient Roman theatre of Philippopolis where the band were joined by the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra. Untouchable captures the magic of that unique evening.
British atmospherick rock masters Anathema have with great excitement announced that they will be performing in India at the beginnig of next year. The show is confirmed on January 12th, 2013, at Saarang Festival in Chennai (IIT Madras).
Anathema are preparing a new treat for the fans. There is a new DVD/Blu-ray coming up in the near future. The band will be filming a special concert on 22nd September in Plovdiv (Bulgaria) at the Ancient Roman Theatre. Anathema will be accompanied by string players of the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra.
"Untouchable Part 1", the brand new video from UK atmospheric rockers Anathema has debuted and is available for viewing exclusively at kscopemusic.com. The song is the opening track from Anathema's most recent album Weather Systems, which is out now via Kscope Records. The clip reflects the themes created in the album and was edited together by Lasse Hoile, the acclaimed director and filmmaker, best known for his work with Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree.
Good news for the European fans of Anathema. The band has just announced further 11 dates on their European tour for October, where they will be promoting their new album Weather Systems.

UK atmospheric rockers Anathema have announced on their official website that their new album will be entitled Weather Systems and will be available on Kscope from April 16th. Weather Systems is the follow-up to 2010's We're Here Because We're Here.
Daniel Cavanagh comments: "It feels like we are at a creative peak right now, and this album reflects that. Everything from the production to the writing to the performances are a step up from our last album."
Anathema will release another reworked compilation album, entitled Falling Deeper, on September 5th.
The band released the following statement: "Falling Deeper continues where Hindsight left off. The album features brand new arrangements of songs and haunting melodies from our earliest days. It's a mesmerizing blend of the orchestral - majestic and at times ethereal - with beautiful vocal arrangements and our unique 'feedback' lead guitars, all centred around a grand piano and a huge rhythm section. All the layers work together to convey the haunting internal landscapes Anathema have become renowned for.
This is an album which we hope will excite old and new Anathema fans equally. A fresh musical and lyrical approach has transformed songs such as "Crestfallen", "Kingdom" and "Sunset Of Age". This record reveals how, even from the very start, the band wrote melodies which would always have a universal magic and emotional impact.
"Dreaming Light", the new video from Anathema, can now be watched below.
The clip was shot by award winning director, Christopher Kenworthy. The song will also be released as a single on Kscope Records on June 20th. It will be available digitally along with Engineers (the English rock band) new remix of the track "Universal".
"Dreaming Light" is the second single to be lifted from last year's album, We're Here Because We're Here.
Anathema will tour North America for the first time ever as special guests to Blackfield on the East Coast/Canadian leg of their tour.
