Haken to perform ‘Affinity’ in its entirety during some shows on their North American Tour

We will be playing ‘Affinity’ in its entirety for a select few shows on our upcoming travels through North America. We thought we would do something special in between our duties supporting Devin Townsend and we’ll also be bringing this set to the high seas for all our favorite people who come to support us year after year on Cruise to the Edge! This will be your chance to hear some songs we rarely play and even one song that we’ve never played live before! And what with it being the 10th Anniversary of our debut ‘Aquarius’, we thought we’d go all-out and celebrate that album too! It’s gonna be an epic set, but epic sets are what we love the most!! Rollback to 1985!!!

Since their inception in 2007, Haken have shown over four previous studio albums, one EP and a live release that they never stand still, merely satisfied to rely on past triumphs. Rather, Haken always look for ways to challenge themselves as musicians and artists, and also to keep the listeners on their collective toes. “We don’t like to make simple music,” laughs vocalist Ross Jennings. “We always aim to defy expectations, and I believe we’ve surpassed what we aimed to achieve with our new album.”
