The ever-evolving progressive metallers Haken are back at work on new music! The London-based group were recently announced as Between The Buried And Me guests on their European tour later this year as main support, and have also started work on their forthcoming new album. Last year, the band released the EP Restoration which featured reworked tracks from their 2008 demo Enter The 5th Dimension. Now it's time to dedicate their time and energy to the follow-up to The Mountain.
After releasing their new album Coma Ecliptic and going on a North American tour with Animals As Leaders and The Contortionist, Between The Buried And Me are going to embark on a shorter European trek with Haken, starting in September. It includes stops in the U.K., Finland, Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, and more. How cool is that for prog fans? Don't miss it!

Proggers Haken have decided to offer their fans a Christmas gift: snippets from their upcoming third album demo. It's just a tease, but at least it is a start. You can listen to and also download the snippets over here. The follow-up to Visions is in the works and more should be revealed soon.
Young UK prog outfit Haken has announced the title of their second album to be Visions.
The new record will be a concept album, just like the debut Aquarius, which dealt with water and ecology, though the exact concept of Visions has not yet been revealed.
Singer Ross Jennings ensures: "We are confident this album will not disappoint fans of Aquarius. As well as pulling some signature stunts, we are also trying to raise the bar with our compositions, and as individual players..."
The band has also stated that they wanted to make the album available exclusive for those attending ProgPower USA in Atlanta on Saturday, September 17th. The tentative release date is planned for the beginning of October and will be announced later.
