Anathema A Sort Of Homecoming on 180g 3LP + Download
A Sort of Homecoming is a stunning concert recording of Anathema's homecoming show on March 7, 2015 in the spectacular setting of the Liverpool Cathedral. During 2014-15 the band toured the world extensively to promote 2014's acclaimed Distant Satellites both as a full band and also with a stripped down acoustic show. It was the band's performance at a one-off show at Gloucester Cathedral in 2014 that opened up a new chapter, giving them an opportunity to set the music in an ornate, beautiful environment.
In March 2015 the band played an acoustic tour of Cathedrals in the UK that culminated in a sold out show in the impressive Liverpool Cathedral, the band's hometown. Featuring 15 songs selected from the albums Distant Satellites, Weather Systems, We're Here Because We're Here, A Natural Disaster and Alternative 4, the ‘Anathema Acoustic' trio of Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh and Lee Douglas were joined by rhythm section John Douglas & Jamie Cavanagh, alongside their very talented close friend David Wesling on cello who also played on Hindsight (2009) and A Moment In Time (2006). For this exclusive performance the band were also joined by the renowned violinist, Anna Phoebe on a haunting rendition of "Anathema."
A Sort Of Homecoming is presented here as a triple 180g vinyl LP-set presented in a gatefold sleeve complete with an MP3 download code and a 4 page color booklet. The audio has been produced and mixed by Christer-Andre Cederberg, who worked on the band's Distant Satellites album. The cover and booklet artwork features the stunning photography from the show by long-time collaborator Caroline Traitler.
