Anathema Distant Satellites on 180g 2LP
Distant Satellites is the highly anticipated follow up to Anthema's critically acclaimed 2012 release Weather Systems and stunning 2013 concert film Universal directed by Lasse Holle. The album was recorded at Cederberg Studios in Oslo, with favoured producer Christer-André Cederberg. Alongside additional mixing by Grammy nominated Steven Wilson, Anathema also brought in the legendary services of Dave Stewart to create the new album's orchestral arrangements.
Distant Satellites will be instantly recognizable to Anathema's global army of ardent disciples as another chapter in the band's remarkable story. With a few strides into uncharted territory, not least the electronica-driven surge of the album's outstanding title track, Distant Satellites will surely be seen as not only their finest album to date but as one of the most celebrated and lauded of 2014.
Distant Satellites is a gleaming anthology of beautifully crafted songs, performed with vitality, verve and utmost passion, once again demonstrating the sublime, instinctive songwriting talents of the Cavanagh brothers and drummer John Douglas. Complementing the album is the beautifully ethereal artwork created by Korean new media artist San Jun Yoo, based around his Distant Light installation in New York. Gatefold 180g heavyweight double vinyl in poly-lined bags with 8 page LP booklet.
"Distant Satellites is the culmination of everything Anathema been working up to so far in our musical path. It contains almost every conceivable element of the heartbeat of Anathema music that it is possible to have. There is beauty, intensity, drama, quietude, and extra musical dimensions that the band have previously only hinted at. All built on the song writing chemistry of Daniel, John and Vincent - and the haunting voice of Lee Douglas. Produced and mixed once again by our very own Christer-André Cederberg (Weather Systems, Universal) and with some songs also mixed by the unassailable Steven Wilson, it’s a special and unique release for the band." - Anathema
