Anathema, Vinnie Cavanagh, Daniel Cavanagh

Daniel Cavanagh has left Britain's Anathema, according to a statement from the guitarist posted at the group's official web site.

"I suppose it's time to tell you this now... I have left Anathema for various resons," said Cavanagh on the official Anathema site. "The best reason is because I now play songs with Duncan Patterson and Michael Moss in Antimatter. This is a good situation and I want you all to know that I am much happier doing this. There is a lot less tension and pressure and there is no "frontman". Our songs are going to be very good, and a lot closer to the true Anathema of Alternative 4, Eternity and songs like "Temporary Peace..." The other guys will carry on without me and I say good luck to them, though I feel a change of name would be more appropriate as they are now a totally different band altogether! You'll hear from us soon..."

The brother to guitarist/vocalist Vincent Cavanagh, Daniel was one of the founding members of Anathema and considered by many of the group's fans to be virtually irreplaceable.

No announcement has yet been made by the rest of the group—Vincent Cavanagh, drummer John Douglas and keyboardist Les Smith—with regards to Anathema's future plans or the exact reasons behind the split, which appear to be largely rooted in the age-old “musical differences”.
