By now you've probably read tons of indie band website intro blurbs telling you lots of great stuff about the artist's (soon-to-be) rise from obscurity to legend. We won't bother you with that self-aggrandizing blather. Here's all you need to know: We're ANUBIS SPIRE, a group comprised of very different minded humans who just by chance are also composers and musicians. Each of us is a world unto ourselves and we seldom agree on anything other than our combined musical mission. We don't make music to fit in, appeal to the broadest demographic or insular elitist clique, or to impress genre purists, brushstroke worshipers, trendies, or (ahem) 'critics.' We simply do what we do, and it either resonates with you or it doesn't. We're fine either way. We are in competition with no one. We make music for the universe...whether it wants it or not. WELCOME.

It has been a while since we've updated news but that doesn't mean things weren't moving along as we huddled in our bunkers. The big news is Bill used the time to finish the long delayed BILL MACKECHNIE AND ASHRAYA project. The album, titled ANSWERED PRAYERS is now available for listening and purchase (full album or singles) at our MUSIC page. Simply click the MUSIC button in the navigation section at the top of this page and once there scroll down to the bottom for it and all the latest AS member's solo albums.
If a physical CD is more to your liking, you can get that here: http://kunaki.com/sales.asp?PID=PX00ZVVYMX
We've also added a TIP JAR at the top of the page after hearing from fans that they really appreciated us allowing them to listen to entire songs rather than small samples and suggesting we add it so they could show their support. Thanks in advance for any and all gratuities you might contribute.
The new ANUBIS SPIRE album "11" is still in the works but the pandemic has made working on it much harder. We're still shooting for a November release date and will keep you posted of developments.

Well...we are in the midst of the covid-19 pandemic and many of life's best laid plans have had to be put on the back burner until we are all through this crisis. That being said, we are working on updating our websites and other online work while we are in lock down. Today we have added all three volumes of our retrospective history of the band's recording history - TRAVELING BY TUNNEL: Twenty Years Under The Radar. Just click the MUSIC button above to check them out.
In other news, in a few days the CD Baby store will be closing. We have kept our music available in CD form for the last few years due to fan request but with CD Baby's closing we are considering dropping physical media once again. We have decided to keep CDs available for at least the next few months at a super low price direct from the manufacturer here : http://kunaki.com/msales.asp?PublisherId=109698 If there is enough demand, we will continue to offer this option, if not, we will regrettably have to stop offering CDs by the end of the year.
We will keep you all informed of any developments, please take care of yourselves and stay safe....
