Easily my most anticipated tour for the rest of the year, the upcoming lineup of Anathema, Alcest, and Mamiffer is something that I never thought would happen in a million years. Anathema has only played the US twice as a full band and both performances were over a decade ago. So knowing that I’ll be able to see them is something out of a dream.
Vincent Cavanagh shares this enthusiasm, commenting: “I can’t wait. Such a cool line up – three bands that move in different spheres while sharing the intent to create music that is honest, forward-thinking and uninhibited.
“I first met Stéphane from Alcest last year, discussing ’90’s shoegaze bands in a forest in Lithuania! He is someone for whom I have great respect. Their music is melodic and soulful, full of dream-like imagery.
“Mamiffer are true artists. The dynamic mix of stark piano, crushing melancholic textures and choral reverie is something to behold. Exactly the kind of thing I’m into, so I’m really looking forward to it.”
Below are the tour dates as well as the track listing for the band’s upcoming live DVD/Blu-Ray Universal, which was directed by Lasse Hoile (Porcupine Tree, Opeth). The live set can be pre-ordered here.
