Haken spoof prog art for Yes cruise announcement

Haken have confirmed their addition to this year’s Cruise To The Edge via a light-hearted video.

Guitarist Charlie Griffiths makes the announcement while being overlaid on some of prog’s most famous works of album art.

The London quartet – who performed at last weekend’s inaugural Ramblin’ Man Fair – join hosts Yes, Marillion, the Neal Morse Band, Anathema, Spock’s Beard and others.

Griffiths says: “It’s going to be a huge honour for us to play alongside all these legendary bands, so we hope to see you there for all the proggy fun.”

Morse and Mike Portnoy last week confirmed they’d be playing a tribute set to late Yes bassist Chris Squire.

The cruise takes place aboard the Norwegian Pearl on the Caribbean from November 15 to 19. Find out more.

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.
