Haken

Affinity (double cd / double vinyl plus cd pre-orders)


Haken's fourth album sees the band drawing influence from the oft-neglected Progressive scene of the 1980s.

"The 1970s was a golden age for prog music," explains guitarist Charles Griffiths. "In the past we've taken a lot from bands of that era, especially Gentle Giant, but this time, we've gone more towards the next decade for our inspiration. It means albums like 90125 from Yes, Toto IV and King Crimson's Three of a Perfect Pair. We all love the sounds they used and we've incorporated some of that approach on Affinity."

Includes the 16 minute The Architect featuring Leprous vocalist Einar Solberg.

Available as a limited edition double cd in media book with signed postcard and as a double 180g vinyl in gatefold with cd.

Pre-order for 29th April release.
