Britain's ANATHEMA have cancelled plans to issue the track Pressure as the first single off their critically-acclaimed album A Fine Day to Exit after MTV and various radio stations refused to rally their support behind the release. According to an official statement by Music For Nations Records press officer Doug Wright, Pressure was withdrawn as a single because: 1) MTV did not like the video and therefore would not play it, 2) The majority of radio stations, although they are finally getting into the band, felt that 'Pressure' was just too slow to be played on the radio, and 3) Without support at radio and TV, it is impossible to get singles into the shops, which would mean that you would all be frustrated by not being able to find it anywhere. As to the future, we have not given up, as we all believe this band will be huge. Therefore we will be going with a new single, 'Underworld', at the very end of April, which is to be released simultaneously with a DVD of their recent live performance in Greece. Believe me, we expected 'Pressure' to be a hit, otherwise we would not have scheduled it for release, however you just never know until it is presented to radio and TV.
