ANATHEMA's previously announced headlining appearance at a festival in Tunis, Tunisia has been cancelled "due to the promoter running out of funds," according to a posting on the group's web site. The festival — which was scheduled to take place on February 11 at the La Coupole arena in the area of El Menzah — "will probably go ahead but ANATHEMA will not be playing," the posting adds.As previously reported, ANATHEMA's previously announced U.K./Irish tour as the support act for H.I.M. — originally scheduled for January — has been postponed until April. ANATHEMA are currently writing and recording new material at Sewerside Studios in Yorkshire, U.K. for a late 2006 release. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Voodoo", "Everything", "A Simple Mistake", "No One is Free" and "Angels Really Do Walk Among Us...". The band recently issued a DVD, "Were You There?", containing a full live show recorded on ANATHEMA's "A Natural Disaster" tour, an acoustic concert performed with a string quartet from the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, plus videos, live clips and other extra features. The artwork and menu designs have been conceived by Travis Smith.
