Anathema Working on New Material

British atmospheric rockers Anathema are hard at work on their as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2001's excellent A Fine Day To Exit.

"The demos for the next album(s) are coming along well," stated guitarist Danny Cavanagh. "Jamie arrives in England today 29th of March to start rehearsals for the gigs and for the albums too. He has some great new material. Similarly do the rest of the guys. There is such a wealth of songs that our biggest difficulty is gonna be to make one album from all the great stuff on offer. Not sure of the title yet, but the plan is to make it this year in time for an autumn release. Song titles include: "The Natural Disaster", "Closer", and "Flying".

Continued Cavanagh: "We are getting along very well now and the albums should be strong when they are done. We hope to go into a studio in May/June for a couple of weeks, mapping out everything that we have, jamming live and just generally being creative. After that, we'll see what the best album we can make is, and go forward to do that."

Anathema's new album will be the first recorded work with the three brothers (vocalist/guitarist Vincent Cavanagh, guitarist Danny Cavanagh and bassist Jamie Cavanagh). Bassist Jamie Cavanagh officially replaces Dave Pybus (Cradle of Filth, ex-Dreambreed), who left shortly after the recording of A Fine Day To Exit.

In similar news, ex-Anathema bassist, Duncan Patterson has completed work on Antimatter's second album Lights Out. At the moment it's unclear if Danny Cavanagh collaborated on the opus, as was previously reported elsewhere.
