“It had become clear to the rest of the band that Vincent was the natural choice to succeed Darren as a singer. This idea had not occurred to Vincent however. He was unsure what our next move would be and it was at this point that Duncan, John and I got together to discuss the matter. We knew at the very least we could get this album done and see where things might develop from there. We sat there in front of the TV watching the football and Vincent then asked the question ‘so if Darren is going, what are we going to do?’ It was then that all three of us pointed at Vincent and said ‘…it’s you…’”—Danny Cavanagh about Vincent replacing Darren as a lead vocal (quote taken from “The Silent Enigma 2 Disc Edition” booklet)
This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for Bulgarian fans and indeed fans around the world to be part of Anathema’s Bluray recording on Saturday.
As you may know, on 22nd September the Ancient Roman Theatre in Plovdiv (Bulgaria) will host a truly special concert. The ruins of this spectacular building will provide a magical backdrop when Anathema take to the stage to perform their show alongside the string players of the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra. After weeks of speculation we can now reveal that this unique concert will be recorded live and released on bluray in 2013 by Kscope.
Speaking about the show, Daniel said that “recording a definitive Anathema DVD in Bulgaria, among some of the best fans in the world, has been on our agenda for some years. The fact that it’s in this amazing location with an orchestral performance is surely a recipe for something special.”
Fresh from winning the award for Best Live Performance at the UK Classic Rock Presents Prog Awards last month, Anathema have designed a stunning production for this show and you can expect to see a breathtaking performance of Anathema songs, new and old. Anathema fans are travelling from far and wide for this show and flights to Sofia have seen a boom in recent weeks! A limited number of tickets still remain for this opportunity so to buy your ticket and be part of this one-off experience, follow the link below.
