Alternative 4 is a band formed by Duncan Patterson, known for his work with Antimatter, Íon, and Anathema.

The band's name is taken from the Anathema album Alternative 4, an album written largely by Patterson, whose title in turn derives from the Leslie Watkins book Alternative 3.


Alternative 4 signed to Avantgarde Music in 2011 with the debut album The Brink released in late 2011. In March 2012, they signed a long term deal with German label Prophecy Productions, who subsequently re-released The Brink later that same year.[1]
