HAKEN Release Video for “Darkest Light,” Taken from “Restoration” EP

Haken - Restoration EP

UK proggers, Haken, have recently announced the release of the Restoration EP on the 27th October 2014, coinciding with their UK & Ireland tour with label mates Leprous and Maschine. Today, they reveal a brand new video for the track Darkest Light taken from the EP, which you can view below.

Guitarist Charlie Griffiths says: ”Darkest Light was our first chance to work creatively with our new bass player Conner Green. It was a natural fit right from the start as not only did he bring with him some insanely cool bass playing, but also a great positive energy that made the whole Restoration EP incredibly fun to make.

Drummer Ray Hearne adds: “Darkest Light is based on Blind, one of our favourite tracks from the original 07/08 demo. We’ve managed to chop the old song in half, cut away all the excess fat and produce a 6 minute rowdy riff roller-coaster that will surely find a home in the heavier side of our live show.

Restoration is comprised of three reworked and updated songs which originally appeared on our 2007/08 self-produced demo, the release has been mixed & mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios. It will be released as a digital download, and a vinyl LP including CD.

The physical vinyl/CD set and some cool Restoration merch will be available on the band’s online store near the end of October. For those after something extra special, the band will have limited edition run of 100 crystal clear vinyls which will be hand numbered and signed by the whole band. These will be only available via the band’s online store and also during their UK tour. The standard black Vinyl/CD set will also be available from the EU and US Inside Out online stores – pre-order info is coming soon!
