ANATHEMA - Unveils First Song From Upcoming Album, Announces European Tour Dates

British prog/atmospheric rock masters Anathema unveiled the first song from their upcoming album The Optimist. The band also shoot a video for the new song named "Springfield" and you can listen and watch to it in the player below.
Daniel Cavanagh commented: "Here we present the song "Springfield", it’s actually the song that closed our unforgettable Wembley gig with Opeth and it seemed to be a track that just fell into place without much effort. It seemed to do itself. The song forms part of a narrative that runs through The Optimist album, it’s a narrative that begins where A Fine Day To Exit left off. The album is a journey. The songs are ambiguous. There is no right or wrong way to take them. Make of them what you will.”
The Optimist will be released on 9th June via Kscope. The Optimist is Anathema's first album since 2014's spellbinding Distant Satellites and contains the band's darkest, most challenging and unexpected material. For the first time in years Anathema recorded as a live band for an album, capturing an energy normally only present on stage. Pre-orders are available at this location. In September, October and November Anathema will be touring through Europe together with supporters Alcest. Dates and venues can be found at the following link or at the poster placed below. Link
