Anathema have revealed the new song "Springfield" along with some new North American tour dates. The song is from their forthcoming album The Optimist.
The tour stretches nine dates, with the kick off in Baltimore on August 16th. The tour also includes shows in New York, Chicago and three Canadian dates, in Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City.
"Touring the U.S. and Canada is always a fantastic privilege,' said guitarist Daniel Cavanagh. "These countries have been the birthplace of some of the most revered recording artists of all time. We are delighted to visit the east coast and we promise to visit the west coast, following up soon. Our new album, The Optimist is set in America. It will be a blast!"
