Leading UK prog rockers Haken have announced European tour dates for February 2022. You can see the full list of dates below. Tickets go on sale this Friday.

It will be the first time the UK sextet have performed live since the release of their most recent album Virus in 2020.

“It’s a huge relief to finally be able to announce a tour after such a difficult year for everyone," says drummer Raymond Hearne. "We’re incredibly excited for this one, which will be the first outing of many in 2022 in celebration of our latest album Virus. Bring on the Haken Invasion!” 

Virus is the culmination of a musical thought experiment which started with 2018’s VectorRoss Jennings explains, “whilst Virus can absolutely be enjoyed as a stand-alone work, it is thematically and conceptually linked with Vector, so our intention is to perform both albums back-to-back for a special performance someday."

Haken singer Ross Jennings recently released his debut solo single Words We Can't Unsay. He will release his debut solo album A Shadow Of My Future Self later this year.
