HAKEN Delve Into Prog Funk with New Song “The Good Doctor”

HAKEN to Release New Album "Vector" on October 26

UK prog metal six-piece Haken have launched a new music video for “The Good Doctor,” a song from their upcoming album Vector, out on October 26th. Watch it below.

The new music video was directed by Stuart White and speaking about the track and video, the band says, “Finally, the prescription you’ve all been waiting for… This dose of Haken is the result of one of the earliest tests we conducted during the Vector experimental process. Best taken aurally three times a day before meals. ‘The Good Doctor‘ will see you now! Making this video was a very cool, creative experience for us. Our director Stuart White presented his interpretation of the song in which we follow a man experiencing a manic, psychotic episode. Combined with the band footage, it encapsulates the energy of the song splendidly.

Vector was produced by the band themselves, and recorded & mixed by Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Periphery, Devin Townsend Project), with the artwork once again being handled by Blacklake.

Following the announcement of North American tour dates this Autumn, the band are pleased to reveal European & Latin American live dates in support of the new album for 2019. The band comments: “We’re thrilled to be bringing our ‘Vector Studies’ tour to Europe. We had immense fun celebrating our 10 year anniversary across Europe in 2017 with incredible turnouts and warm receptions. This time around we will be focusing on performing tracks from our new album ‘Vector’ along with some live favourites of ours. For your health and wellbeing, the good doctor prescribes you some live Haken.

The band add on the Latin America shows: “A visit to South America has been long overdue. Many of our dedicated South American fans have made epic trips around the world to experience our shows in Europe and North America and now we’re ecstatic to reveal we will finally be returning the favour! See you in January! As for Mexico City and Cruise To The Edge, well… we cannot wait to return!
