Anathema returns with Weather Systems, their 2012 studio album. the follow-up to We're Here Because We're Here. That album featured prominently in numerous end-of-year polls and the producer, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), has described it as 'definitely among the best albums I've ever had the pleasure to work on.' Daniel Cavanagh from the band, feels that Weather Systems will surpass even this, "it feels like we are at a creative peak right now, and this album reflects that. Everything from the production to the writing to the performances are a step up from our last album."
