Covid killed Anathema.

Anathema are going on 'long term hiatus'. They seem to be implying the current situation is the main reason. That sucks. Have any other bands had to call it a day due to the covid restrictions/coronavirus?

Anathema have broken up a few times and got back together, so it wuldnt surprise me if this indefinite hiatus only lasted a year, but we will see.

Always been a massive fan, back to when I first heard Sweet Suffering on the Friday Night Rock Show many many years ago.

I have to be honest in that the last album did absolutely nothing for me. It wasnt bad as such, but it was just incredibly uninspiring

I also wouldn't be surprised if they came back in a couple of years. I hope so anyway, they are one of my favourite bands.

As said before, they have been on hiatus before. I sincerely hope that they do come back in the future as I absolutely love their stuff and it would be a serious loss to music
if they didn't

ps another reason why I would like them back is that they are the only band I've managed to get my other half to go and see

That sucks, I saw them for the first time ever at Brutal Assault last year and fell in love with them (even more than I loved them before)

A rocker waiter pointed across the street and said, "that place got covidnated".

That's the new term and I'm sure it's already spread....Covidnated.

I guess Anathema got covidnated.
