Boa tarde! Back to work.

Ola ola. I'm writing from sunny Portugal at the moment, getting prepared to mix the new Alternative 4 album 'The Brink'. We're also shooting a video here this week for the forthcoming 'False Light' 7" due for release in September. Details here. Then a video clip for the monotonous epic 'Underlooked' will coincide with the album release itself in October. Also next month will see the re-released version of Anathema - 'Eternity' as a limited edition gatefold vinyl package. Looking forward to seeing how that turns out. Things are happening.
We are currently working with promoters in the Balkan region to arrange a tour for December, promoting the release of 'The Brink'. Any interested promoters in the region please get in touch
Bye for now. Ate logo!

Alternative 4/MonumentuM split 7″ ep release

"Duncan Patterson’s new project band will unleash the song ‘False Light’ in late September, as a warm-up to their full length album ‘The Brink’, to be released one month after the EP.
Quoting Duncan’s description, “False Light is probably the heaviest thing I have written in the last decade, at least in its portant riff. It is actually about (music) media control paralleled with religious control, the sheeple and the victims of circumstance.”

It will be presented in a slightly different and edited mix than the album version will be.

Following up the release of the Shape of Despair/Before the Rain split 7″, Avantgarde Music will also release ‘False Light’ as an artists joint venture that will feature on Side B italian dark/doom pioneers MonumentuM, officially at their come back after a few years hiatus. MonumentuM’s contribution will be an interpretation of Pj Harvey’s dramatically beautiful ‘The River’ and will remain exclusive to this EP release, not to be included in their next coming album.

The 7″ will also be optionally offered in bundle with two exclusive (50 ex limited) T-shirts, one per each band and including a cd-listening copy too (mailorder orders only) for those who don’t own a turntable or the lazy owners"
