Anaal Nathrakh will play the Scala venue in London on December 14 with Sigh. The band's lineup includes Akercocke and Voices members, with guitarist Mick Kenney being absent as a he's experienced a "change of plan… which meant that his focus had to shift, for the time being at least." So what does that lineup sound like? Check 'em out below as they absolutely destroy "Endarkenment" and sleep well tonight knowing that Anaal Nathrakh can still bring it!
"Roll on the December show… A quick rehearsal video of Endarkenment from the first full band session with the guys from Akercocke & Voices – only the second time this song had ever been played by a whole live band so still a touch rough but it was great to finally get stuck in. We can't wait to do it for real and with appropriate malice of forethought."
Below is the band's full statement on the December 14, and you can get tickets to the show here.
"Mythology announce first Anaal Nathrakh show in over three years in December. And possibly last…
"Pandemics can, apparently, be unpredictable. Sometimes they can push the world into lockdown right when you've just recorded a stunning new album. Sometimes a project can blow up during a pandemic and change how you need to approach everything. In our case, there was definite unfinished business, with any plans for touring in the wake of Endarkenment destroyed by the virus.
"There was also a change of plan for Mick which meant that his focus had to shift, for the time being at least. But that sense of unfinished business finally got too much to take, and so it was decided that Dave, with Mick's full support, would team up with a few bad men from the Anaal Nathrakh live lineup and and the peerless Akercocke/Voices stable for a very special evening with the incomparable Sigh in London in December.
"It is possible that a further select few shows will snowball out of this. Or that this could turn out to be the last Anaal Nathrakh show, ever. Pandemics aren't the only things that can be unpredictable. All we know is that it promises to be a fine night of apocalyptic chaos."
