Virus

VirusVirus2020Since releasing ‘Vector’ in October 2018, Haken have completed headline tours the world over, played sold-out shows across Europe and North America as support for Devin Townsend and picked up a Prog award for their efforts too!

There’s a global flood coming, and it turns out that the mermaid’s blood … Read More
