HAKEN discuss ‘Vector’ in new video interview

HAKEN, one of progressive music’s most exciting bands, recently announced details of their much-anticipated fifth studio album titled ‘Vector’, due for release on October 26th, 2018. The album was produced by the band themselves, and recorded & mixed by Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood (Periphery, Devin Townsend Project), with the artwork once again being handled by Blacklake.

They have now launched the first of a 3 part interview with band members Ross Jennings, Charlie Griffiths & Rich Henshall discussing how the new album came together. Watch it now here:

The band recently launched a video for the album’s first single, titled ‘The Good Doctor’. Watch it now here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD3v8w57_lU

The band says of the track: “Finally, the prescription you’ve all been waiting for… This dose of Haken is the result of one of the earliest tests we conducted during the Vector experimental process. Best taken aurally three times a day before meals. ‘The Good Doctor’ will see you now!”

They add on the video: “Making this video was a very cool, creative experience for us. Our director Stuart White presented his interpretation of the song in which we follow a man experiencing a manic, psychotic episode. Combined with the band footage, it encapsulates the energy of the song splendidly.”

The band will embark on an epic tour starting this October in North America, with dates in South American & European tour dates for 2019.
