While Anathema had planned to spend November playing a string of intimate shows to road-test material from their still-untitled eleventh studio album, the band are now set to also play their biggest ever UK show to date when they’ll support Opeth at SSE Wembley Arena on 19th November.
Vocalist Vincent Cavanagh comments:
"Wembley Arena is an iconic venue that evokes strong memories. Danny was drawn to the guitar as a way of life after seeing Mark Knopfler play there on TV. Huge thanks to Opeth for having us. It'll be an honour."
Anathema are due to enter the studio sometime after the tour but remain tight-lipped on information regarding the eagerly awaited follow up to 2014's Distant Satellites. In-between the writing sessions at their London studio, the band have embarked on new adventures, playing the likes of Starmus Festival in Tenerife.
