We’re Here Because We’re Here is the eighth studio album by British alternative / progressive rock band Anathema, released in May 2010 by Kscope Records.

Anathema are one of the select few bands that actually progress with each album, honing their songwriting skills to provide a better means for their musical message - but a six-year gap in the recording schedule that preceded We're Here Because We're Here still left many fans wondering, where do they go from here? Turns out, it was in the right direction.

The most easily recognised change is the increased emphasis on piano, which is the leading instrument on most songs, but don’t despair, the horde of mainstream rock imitators, can never rival the immense emotional charge of Anathema's music. The cathartic effect is further amplified by the music's elaborate but clear arrangements, with pianos, strings, shivering vocals, and quietly wailing guitars blending together into elegant and dramatic songs with a rich sound of mini-symphonies - and clever hooks hidden in the textures. Vibe-wise, it is prime Anathema, with the mood tethering on the brink of despair, but always resolving into optimism or at least dreamy, elegiac resignation (to speak of maturity again).

We're Here Because We're Here is an album you must hear for yourself. I urge you to do so however you can. It is a wonderful experience full of masterfully crafted and developed melodies, very moving lyrics and perfectly suited production. It is a unique, special gem

Check out the tracks: “Dreaming Light”; “Everything”; "A Simple Mistake" and "Thin Air".

This Limited Edition double LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inners is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
