Nova Collective describe themselves as a combination of jazz fusion and progressive rock, with the band adding that they have “lots of updates” incoming with album pre-order details to be announced in the new year.

Following the release of The Further Side, Haken will head out on the road across Europe to to mark the London-based outfit’s 10th anniversary – and to celebrate the February 3 reissues on 2CD and vinyl of 2010’s Aquarius and 2011’s Visions.
