A Sort Of Homecoming is the third live album by British alternative / progressive rock band Anathema, released in November 2015 via Kscope Records.

Over the last few years, English troupe Anathema have become a distinguished, affective, and steadfast progressive rock band.

A Sort of Homecoming, focuses almost entirely their post 2003 A Natural Disaster material. An acoustic collection of fifteen gems, the songs are inherently less boisterous and symphonic than their studio counterparts; nevertheless, it’s still an intimate and impassioned journey through Anathema’s astounding recent catalogue.

In addition to core members Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh, Lee Douglas, and Jamie Cavanagh, A Sort of Homecoming also features cellist David Wesling and violinist Anna Phoebe on certain sections. The show was recorded at the Liverpool Cathedral on March 7th, 2015; the band began playing in cathedrals last year (in support of its newest opus, Distant Satellites) and felt that a return to its hometown would be the perfect way to conclude the tour.

A Sort of Homecoming is a must-have record not only for fans of Anathema, but for anyone looking for sublime songwriting, warm yet haunting instrumentation, and elegant singing. Yes, its stripped-down approach means that many of the nuances of the official arrangements aren’t there, but it’s precisely this sense of delicate bareness that makes the sequence so charming. In the end, A Sort of Homecoming proves once again that the band are just as captivating on stage as it is in the studio (albeit in different ways), and it serves as another worthy testament to how incredible Anathema are.

Check out the tracks: “Anathema”; “A Natural Disaster” "Untouchable Parts 1 & 2" and “The Lost Song – Part 2”. 

This Limited Edition triple LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inners and a digital download code, is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
