The pandemic has taken another band. UK doom masters Anathema have announced today, due to personal priorities, that the band will be taking an indefinite hiatus.
The band made the announcement on social media:
Dear Anathema family,
This year is one like no others.
We’ve all – every one of you included – faced unpredictable challenges, which impacted both our professional and personal situations. In this hardest of times, events over this year have left us with no option but to go on an indefinite hiatus. As individuals, it is now time to pursue other paths in life.
We are beyond grateful for everyone’s support over the years. There is no end to the love and respect we have for our fans for giving us the best years of our lives. The generosity you all showed following the unexpected cancellation of our tour will always stay with us.
We could never have anticipated how this year would turn out.
Many, many thanks.
In 2018, in our #TBT column, Lauryn Mercer perfectly described the band: Liverpool’s Anathema spent their early career running around with the likes of At The Gates and My Dying Bride bumming out the masses with their cathartic blend of doom-kissed riffs and beautifully simplistic lyricism. While the band is still recording mood-swept albums that explore the facets of the human experience, their 5th studio album Judgement marks a change in sound that some call the band’s last ‘metal’ album. Prepare yourself to feel with Judgement.
