Progressive rockers, Haken, are excited to announce a 2023 European co-headline tour with Between The Buried & Me, including support from Cryptodira. The ‘Island In Limbo’ tour will begin on the 21st February 2023, and will be the bands first European run since December 2019.
Ross Jennings comments: “After three years away, and two cancelled tours due to the pandemic, our return to the European stage is going to feel very powerful indeed. We’ve missed all those familiar faces in the audience, and can’t wait to welcome all the new fans to be part of the Haken live experience, too!
With new material imminent, and a bunch of songs from ‘Virus’ still not performed live, we’re super excited to put the set list together for this run.
We are also ecstatic to reunite with our dear friends and progressive metal cohorts, ‘Between the Buried and Me’ as our co-headliners.
The tour stops at some of our bucket list venues, including London’s ‘Shepherd’s Bush Empire’, which is set to be our biggest London show to date! What could be better than celebrating our musical journey so far at the ultimate homecoming venue?!”

The band recently completed the recording of their forthcoming new studio album, their first with keyboardist Pete Jones back in the band. You can listen to the recently released single, ‘Nightingale’, below:

The band comments: “Nightingale was the first track Pete Jones presented to the band after rejoining Haken this year. The initial song idea quickly inspired of the classic Haken sound and naturally evolved into some new harmonic territory. The song ranges from delicate moments to monstrous riffs.
We enlisted Jens Bogren to mix Nightingale and, as always, he’s blown us away by capturing every detail while delivering power and energy. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product.
Lyrically, the song reflects on the creative process itself; with a message that although it may be difficult of late, we must remember to be thankful for the positives in life; be they big or small.”
In March, the band announced the initial details of ‘Nightingale’, as well as held a competition for fans to submit their own original artwork for the forthcoming single. The winning artwork was chosen by the band themselves, from Belgium’s Rein Van Oyen.
