Guitarist Daniel "Danny" Cavanagh has posted the following update on the official Anathema website:

Porcupine Tree have kindly asked Anathema to support them on their full European tour in the autumn... This tour is still in the planning stage and will cover alot of territories.

Anathema have decided that - rather than rushing into the studio to finish the album in time for the tour, (and not being able to work with the producer we would like) - it will actually benefit the band and the new album to play the new songs live before recording them.

So you can expect to hear songs like 'Angels Walk Among Us', 'Paradigm Shift', 'Hindsight', 'Get Off, Get Out' 'Lightning Song', 'One Day', 'Summernight Horizon', 'Further', 'A Simple Mistake' and others on the tour with PT...

Our new american manager is helping to put everything in place for us to record and release this ambitious music. He is negotiating deals in the USA and advising us on our best way to go. The response from record companies has been very positive. We intend to record approximately 85 minutes of music for this album and at least 14 songs. The idea AT THE MOMENT is to release a double album called simply..

'Paradigm Shift'

Again this is not confirmed, PLANS CAN CHANGE.

A double album WILL NOT mean it will be a huge, overbearing, very long album... It may only be two groups of seven songs, split over two CD's in order to be easily digested by the listener. It definately will not be a self indulgent album and it's not a 'concept album'. Themes of life, healing and unity will run through some of the songs...

The recent shows we have played this year have been great. We had some great nights, some great audiences and great laughs. Thanks for everyone who helped make it happen. Special thanks must go out to Derek and Alx at the agency, Mick Reed, Milly Evans, Raymond, Ian, Loz, Ozzy and Hans for making it all work. We have loved playing. We look forward very much to introducing this intense, passionate new music to the public on tour with porcupine tree. We then look forward to recording what i personally think will be a wonderful record after the tour. It is the first album we have made that will be truly complete. It will change lives. Hopefully beginning with ours.

Wishing you all the best.


PS: A full tour of TURKEY has been confirmed for october. Dates will be online very soon..

This news leads to the conclusion that "Paradigm Shift" will probably not be released before 2008 since that Porcupine Tree's European tour will end in December…

A lot of interesting things here... Well, the good ones are that we will be able to see a fantastic show with Porcupine Tree and that the album is becoming more and more interesting imo.

On the other hand... we will have to wait a bit more... shit

Good news !

BTW, Danny played an accoustic show in Paris the 17th of august, my girlfriend was there and it seems to have been great. I don't know if he played new songs, however.

Will be catching both of the UK shows with Porcupine Tree.

And I'm guessing that this means the UK show Anathema had planned in September is cancelled? Hm...I'll see After Forever that day anyway so it's a good thing it's cancelled.
