Believe it or not, 2013 saw the first Anathema North American tour! The group — notorious for growing into an atmospheric art rock band from doom metal beginnings — found a fitting enough partner for their first trek in French post-black metal progenitors Alcest. In tow is Mamiffer, the new project from Isis’ Aaron Turner to round out a tour that is packed with atmosphere and manly tears. Maclyn Bean was able to attend the Philadelphia stop (Anathema’s first ever US show!), and you can view the photos below.
