Anathema stream Distant Satellites

Anathema have made tenth album Distant Satellites available for streaming in full.

Daniel Cavanagh has described the follow-up to 2012’s Weather Systems as “the culmination of everything we have been working on in our musical path,” and adds: “It contains almost every conceivable element of the heartbeat of Anathema music that it is possible to have.”

The album features more electronic elements than their previous outings. Cavanagh explains: ““Sometimes we’ll have to take the music in a certain direction – but more often you’re listening rather than guiding; you’re listening to where the music wants to go.”

In an exclusive Prog video interview, he told how a technical problem with a recording device inspired new three-piece work The Lost Song.

Distant Satellites is released on Monday via Kscope. Anathema play the Download festival next weekend.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
