Haken, being the progressive powerhouse that they are, require no further introduction. News broke that they have booked tour dates for Latin America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand; this is basically a world tour. With their fifth release Vector having received a lot of acclaim, they now embark on quite a journey to support it!

On the first six dates of the European leg, they will be sharing the stage with the Danish proggers in VOLA, a band that has been slowly rising in the prog scene as a fairly unique and talented act over a decade of activity. They recently put out Applause of a Distant Crowd, which they have been performing in various locations since then. The final* band to round out the line-up are Bent Knee, who haven’t been around for long, but have garnered quite a following with their top-tier line-up and unique musical vision. Their most recent work is the 2017 album Land Animal, songs off which they will most likely be playing, among other tunes from their repertoire of course.

*on the dates between 7th-10th of March, Haken will be supported by the Ben Levin Group, which, for those unfamiliar, is the side project of Bent Knee‘s guitarist.

What can I say? I love slapping keys and listening to squiggly air.
