"Work on the new ANATHEMA album 'Horizons' is already well underway. We expect this to be our greatest album by a long, long way.

"In other news, Danny Cavanagh [of ANATHEMA] will be touring Norway and Sweden with Anneke Van Giersbergen, former singer of THE GATHERING and now with AGUA DE ANNIQUE. Expect some special performances together. Not to be missed!"

In other news, ANATHEMA has posted the following message on its official web site:

"It has been brought to our attention that the SPHERICAL MINDS album 'Fern' is being passed around the Internet as ANATHEMA new material.

"The only anathema new material we have released online are the three songs you can find on this site and on our MySpace page.

"Any supposed 'demo' of any other song is probably Danny Cavanagh doing guest vocals on the SPHERICAL MINDS album. So just to let you know, if you think you are listening to 'Lightning Song' or 'Bricks'... you are not."

A brand new ANATHEMA song entitled "Angels Walk Among Us" is available for download at this location (MP3, 18 MB).

The MetalList webzine has uploaded video footage of ANATHEMA performing a new song, entitled "A Simple Mistake", on October 5, 2007 at the Tochka club in Moscow, Russia. Watch the clip below.
