HAKEN: “Cockroach King” Video Released


Haken have released a video for “Cockroach King” taken from the band’s latest album “The Mountain.” View it below.

The band decided to take an unusual approach to the promo for the track taken from latest album The Mountain.

Haken explain: “Cockroach King is definitely the most classic prog sounding song from the record.

“We allowed our eccentric side to come to the fore and wrote a song in the tradition of some of our favourite English 70s bands like Queen and the Specials. It’s obviously a huge tip of the hat to Gentle Giant too.

“Jens Bogren did an amazing job with the mix. It’s a blend of old traditions and modern sounds that we jokingly refer to as ‘Djentle Djiant’.”

Discussin the video, they say: “It’s a tribute to a more innocent time before our TVs were dominated by computer animation and hi-definition – a time when things were hand-made, wholesome and fun for the whole family!”
