I still hope it's just a hiatus and they will be back.

Weird for me is that they blame the ill-fated 2020 for their decision...

For another boring, fluffy post-rock album? I think their music has run its course...

Ya, this was long over due. I recall reading an interview with them in Pit back in 04 or 06 where they said they had a few more albums left before they ended Anathema. They should've quit after 'Eternity'. They've always written good lyrics but as stated above their musical output has been weak for years. Shifting from doom to alternative to pink floyd to post rock, their identity crises has been painful to watch.

For the most bands that split off, it's a mixture of many factors and for me, it seems that 2020 was just the nail in the coffin of the band. It just is as it is and I guess all of the involved musicians will make their path.

A lot of bands are hanging it up. This whole thing has been stupid.

It's probably just a hiatus. It's definitely Danny. Remember the number of times he's quit Anathema and then come back to it, etc.

No. I don't think their music has taken its course.

Most of the rumors I've heard make it sound like we got a TPOG situation on our hands. I'll leave it there... the old guys know what that means I think.

If that’s true, I’m quite shocked.
Most of what I’ve read suggests financial trouble which in itself wouldn’t necessarily mean the end for them. What you’re suggesting though most definitely would.
I won’t miss them.

one of the guys in anathema is indeed quite creepy in some ways, but that's a bit too out there, if it's true. very curious now.

I also thought it was the loss of income that did them in.

Hadn't heard that rumour before now, but that specific member also has serious issues otherwise. And probably the opposite of that situation as well.

I've just seen stuff in places like https://www.reddit.com/r/Anathema/comments/j9aovv/rumours_about_the_indefinite_hiatus/ and https://www.facebook.com/groups/188093381232945. It's worth noting that some of the commenters in the FB group in particular are related to the band, and I've seen certain posts on ex members pages that are very concerning. I'm not really comfortable shit-stirring though, so not going to post any direct quotes or anything here, especially as it seems that a lot of these people might be not speaking for legal reasons. I'm not interested in interfering with a Crown Court case that's for damn sure. If this was a USA thing I believe that any ongoing legal proceedings would be public record, but not here in the UK.

I don't know. If there is a criminal case under way I guess it should be left to reach it's conclusion, innocent till proven guilty and all that (counter: no smoke without fire). I just think it is worth warning all the many people who seem desperate for them to come back that that may not be happening, and not for good reasons. And if this is the case it is an extremely fucking lame move on their part to blame the pandemic. Every other band in the world is in exactly the same boat, mine included.

Yeah we've heard the same things then. It's definitely a shitty thing if they're blaming COVID when it's far from the case. Daz especially has been quite vocal in several fan groups.

Wow. What an awful situation. I had no idea this was happening. Horrible news.

They've sold off their equipment? Interesting. I'd forgotten about this.
