Weather Systems is the ninth album by the British rock band Anathema. It was released on 16 April 2012 in Europe via Kscope and 24 April 2012 in the US via The End Records. The band describes the album as "not background music for parties. The music is written to deeply move the listener". The album was recorded in Liverpool, North Wales and Oslo, each place significant to Anathema's past, present and future

In May 2012 Anathema released Weather Systems, the most acclaimed and successful album of the band's celebrated career. The album scored high in numerous critics end of year polls around the world and cemented the band's reputation as one of the most exciting and progressive band around. Following the release of the album the band embarked on a lengthy tour. The European leg opened with a triumphant one-off show at the ancient Roman theatre of Philippopolis with the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra in September 2012.

After Falling Deeper, Anathema's orchestral detour into greatest hitsville, the Liverpool band return with a true follow-up to We're Here Because We're Here. What Falling Deeper accomplished was to make the band comfortable with the string arrangements of Dave Stewart; they're used abundantly - and to great benefit - on Weather Systems (produced by Christer-Andre Cederberg with Daniel and Vincent Cavanagh). Guitarist Daniel has written a set of songs that are more daring, harmonically ambitious, and poetically sophisticated than anything he's previously attempted.

Weather Systems is an album which is originally the most balanced, light and atmospheric from all created by Anathema by far. The weather parallel here is sincerely poetically fitting as all the instruments and lyrics portray the atmosphere with a lightweight elegance. Lightning Song and Sunlight are tinged with as much ethereality as The Storm Before the Calm with fluidity so you feel completely carried away while listening. The complexity of the whole album is more than perfect. Unlike many other bands, who work only with the ability to create the atmosphere, the technical side of Weather Systems is also very precise and flawless. The coherence and the instruments are all brought to a master level, no matter if in heavy or minimalistic way. The biggest problem and the most amazing feature of Anathema’s music is that something that digs so Deep into emotions is almost impossible to judge objectively.
