About this album


This is the sound of music with real meaning, from a band growing in popularity against all the odds. A band defying expectations and rewriting the rule books on what can and can’t be done in rock music. A band with such a natural sense of melody, balanced with seething power and lyrics that enlighten and inspire, a band of brothers and sisters, a band of unique origin. This is the best band you have never heard of. This album is beyond anything you ever heard before in its field. We are Anathema: we’re here because we’re here.

Anathema return on May 31st with their new album, We’re Here Because We’re Here. This is the first collection of new material from the band since the 2003 album, A Natural Disaster. A multi-coloured, multi-layered work of unbridled emotion, passion, and intensity, the new album has been eagerly anticipated by their legions of fans around the globe.

The album has been mixed by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), who has described it as “definitely among the best albums I’ve ever had the pleasure to work on.”

    I still can't like this album. My least favorite by Anathema.

    In the meantime I have already figured that out and read 3 Eckhart Tolle books (The Power of Now, Practicing the Power of Now and Stillness Speaks). Thanks anyway, I hope a lot more Anathema fans will read his books.

    Danny was inspired by writings of Eckhart Tolle and his books "The Power Of Now" and "A New Earth". There are some direct quotes from the books for example in the song Presence "Life is not the opposite of death. Death is the opposite of birth. Life is eternal." I'm 100% sure about it since 2 years ago I've talked with Danny after one of they're concerts, we've talked about the books and he made a nice signature on my copy of "The Power Of Now". :) Great books, definitely recommend them to everyone!

    Yeah he obviously stumbled across The Secret and a whole bunch of other new age writings

    Judging by the lyrical content it's very obvious Daniel Cavanagh underwent a huge change in his lifestyle and mindset approach between 2003 and 2010. Don't know what's the inspiration behind We're Here Because We're Here but I can tell you it fits perfectly with a book I'm reading atm called Ask and It Is Given (written by Esther Hicks).

    Easy listening? I don't think so. The album is not filled with regrets anymore, it's filled with love. I think it's some kind of culmination on their musical carreer... and their emotional life.

    I am okay bro.I don't say this is a happy album.Just too 'light and bright' if you compare it to their past records.It is good though.
