Dreaming Light is the second single to be lifted from 2010 album, We're Here Because We're Here. Awarded Classic Rock's 'Prog Album of the Year' as well as a host of other accolades, the album was the band's first collection of new material band since the 2003 album, A Natural Disaster.
The bar for Weather Systems has been set pretty high with 2010's 'Were Here Because We're Here', but Daniel Cavanagh from the band is certain that the album will exceed these lofty expectations, 'it feels like we are at a creative peak right now, and this album reflects that. Everything from the production to the writing to the performances are a step up from our last album.' He continues, 'This is not background music for parties. The music is written to deeply move the listener, to uplift or take the listener to the coldest depths of the soul.'
The intertwining melodic structures, the profoundly beautiful and intensely powerful - yet simple - songs will transport the listener closer to the heart of life, that is to say, to the heart of themselves. It is also an album of polarity. The play of opposites; light and shade, birth and death, love and fear. The simple truths of life and loss, hope and strength and darker internal themes are all explored here.
The album was recorded in Liverpool, North Wales and Oslo, each place significant to Anathema past, present and future. The record was produced and mixed by 5 times Norwegian Grammy nominated Christer-André Cederberg (Animal Alpha, In the Woods...), who Daniel has described as 'a revelation. His calmness and brilliance has helped to bring about the greatest inter-band chemistry that Anathema have experienced together in their career.'
Their best ever work? 'Not yet' says Daniel, but he does believe that with Weather Systems they have surpassed previous glories; 'we are pleased and proud of the record and we feel that, alongside the best moments of WHBWH, this record contains our very best work so far in what is becoming a long career.'
Praise for Weather Systems;
'It is truly majestic, heavenly - Is it another masterpiece? Of course it is.'
TERRORIZER 5/5 (Album Of The Month)
'Anathema continue to make music that glows with meaning and a love for art's external powere to touch the soul. Still special, increasingly extraordinary; the band and this album will be cherished.'
