Britain's ANTIMATTER, featuring ex-ANATHEMA bassist Duncan Patterson, have inked a North American deal with The End Records. The group's debut album, Saviour, will be issued domestically on September 24th and will include two acoustic bonus tracks—"Over Your Shoulders" and "Flowers"—both featuring ANATHEMA guitarist Danny Cavanagh.Duncan commented on the signing: "So far I have only heard positive things about the label so I decided to contact The End on the back of their reputation. It's nice to have a US deal at last—we've been waiting long enough." The band are also working on their sophomore release, tentatively due in early 2003, and are gearing up for their first-ever live shows. According to Duncan, "we have the second album written and will progress with that over the coming months. Also we have a few acoustic nights lined up in Europe for October 2002."
