London-based progressive metal band HAKEN have just completed the European leg of their "Affinitour" in support of their latest release Affinity. Now they are pleased to announce the North America tour for this Fall. The tour kicks off in Chicago, IL on Aug. 30th and concludes in Portland, OR on Sept. 21st. The group will also make a stop at major US festival ProgPower in Atlanta, on Sept 10th. New Jersey Prog outfit THANK YOU SCIENTIST join the group on this 17 date trek.

The band had this to say about the upcoming tour:

"After last year's success in North America, we've been eager to get back and play to our amazing fans over there and also travel to new territory in Texas, Arizona and the West Coast. To make things even more exciting, we're taking one of our favourite bands out with us - THANK YOU SCIENTIST. If you haven't heard these guys, you've been missing out!"

  • "Earthrise"
  • "Red Giant"
  • "The Endless Knot"
  • "Bound By Gravity"
Recorded during the Winter months of 2015, Affinity marks a new approach to the song-writing process for HAKEN, as vocalist Ross Jennings explains; "It is the most collaborative we have ever been on an album. We wanted to develop and expand our sound by having every member contribute initial ideas from the very beginning of the process. It naturally takes longer to filter through the mass of material and fit it all together coherently, but this approach has helped to create something completely fresh whilst maintaining the core elements of HAKEN's sound."

The band once again called upon Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, DEVIN TOWNSEND, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME) for mixing and mastering duties. "He is a wizard in this department! We are always confident his mix will bring out the best from our performance and this is no exception," remarks keyboardist Diego Tejeida.

Like much of HAKEN's previous music, Affinity is full of surprises and "The Architect", the album's centrepiece, is no exception. Blasting through a dizzying array of instrumental insanity coupled with down-tempo atmospheric tenuity, HAKEN welcomes friend and LEPROUS frontman Einar Solberg mid-song for a spot of guest vocals! Just one of many twists and turns throughout this 60-minute musical lobotomy, HAKEN's Affinity will open up a new dimension in this UK sextet's trajectory.
