[News] Haken announce “An Evening With” 2024 North American tour

Progressive Rockers Haken are pleased to announce they will return to North America in 2024 for a special “An Evening With” tour. Kicking off on February 10th, 2024 in Los Angeles, the band will be performing the entirety of their acclaimed newest album “Fauna,” as well as other tracks from across the bands career. The run of shows will culminate in the 2024 edition of Cruise to the Edge between 8-13th March (not An Evening With show).
The band comment: “We’re really excited to be doing our first “An Evening with Haken” tour in North America next year. It’s something we’ve been talking about and wanting to do for a while, and which we’ll be hoping to take further afield too after this run. Given our growing discography it can get harder and harder each year to choose a setlist that covers everything we want to and also pleases all of our fans. With the full evening to ourselves, we have the freedom to really dig deep into the back catalogue! Fans can expect Fauna in its entirety, and a whole lot of different Haken music old and new. So come and join us for “An Evening with Haken” in February and March 2024!”

Fauna” is available on several formats, including Ltd 2CD (incl. instrumentals), Standard CD, Gatefold 2LP & as Digital Album. The albums stunningly detailed artwork was created by Dan Goldsworthy (Charlie Griffiths, Sylosis)

Fauna” sees the band exploring new ideas conceptually as Ross continues: “The premise of the album when we started writing it was that every song would have an animal assigned to it. They all have something related to the animal kingdom that we could write about, but they also connect to the human world. Each track has layers, and some of them are more obvious than others.

“It reminds me of The Mountain,” adds guitarist and fellow founder Richard Henshall. “There, we had the idea of not really a narrative-based album, but more the concept of climbing a mountain and overcoming the obstacles along the way. Then we took that and thought about how it could relate to our everyday lives. All of Fauna’s animals relate to us, personally.

Fauna” also marks the return of keyboard player Peter Jones, whose sounds can be heard permeating the entire album. “What Pete’s brought sonically to the band has played a massive role in why we do have a lot of new sounds on this record,” says Ross. “It’s always a new dynamic when there’s a change in personnel, and this is a fresh and reviving one. It’s certainly helped proximity-wise, with Pete being in the country: Pete and Ray [Hearne, Haken’s drummer] would be at Rich’s place and they’d just start jamming. That’s really key to how the songs start.
