UK prog rockers Haken have announced their first European tour since December 2019. The band will co-headline the Island In Limbo tour with US prog metallers Between The Buried And Me in February, March and April 2023.

The tour kicks off on February 21 in Hamburg, Germany and runs through to April 5 in Gothenberg, Sweden and also includes what will be the band's biggest UK show. Support comes from experimental rockers Cryptodira. You can see the full list of tour dates below. Tickets are on sale now.

"After three years away, and two cancelled tours due to the pandemic, our return to the European stage is going to feel very powerful indeed," exclaism Halen singer Ross Jennnings. "We've missed all those familiar faces in the audience, and can't wait to welcome all the new fans to be part of the Haken live experience, too!

"With new material imminent, and a bunch of songs from 'Virus' still not performed live, we're super excited to put the set list together for this run.

"We are also ecstatic to reunite with our dear friends and progressive metal cohorts, Between the Buried And Me as our co-headliners.

"The tour stops at some of our bucket list venues,  including London's Shepherd's Bush Empire, which is set to be our biggest London show to date! What could be better than celebrating our musical journey so far at the ultimate homecoming venue?!"

Haken have been putting the finishing touches to their latest album, the follow-up to 2020's Virus, which will be the first since original keyboard player Pete Jones rejoined the band. Haken released a new single, Nightingale, in April.
