Haken, Leprous, Maschine to tour UK

Haken, Leprous and Maschine will tour the UK starting in October, proudly sponsored by Prog.

The InsideOut stablemates are teaming up for the biggest run of British shows any of them have ever delivered, and the aim is to showcase some of the label’s best young talent.

For Haken it’s their first-ever trip round the UK. The band say: “We can’t wait – it’s going be a blast. We’ll be playing songs from our back catalogue with the possibility of showcasing some new material. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.”

Norwegians Leprous say: “The UK is a territory we’ve wanted to explore for a while. The nice thing about the UK is that you have all these great cities in very close distance to each other, which means less driving and more playing! We promise a very intense show.”

Maschine mainman Luke Machin says: “Each band are certain to bring something special for every one of these shows. We’ll be performing tracks from our debut album Rubidium and we’ll also be road-testing some new material.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
