New generation’s prog-metal super band..

Haken, a 6 piece progressive rock band, formed in London, in 2007, has four full length albums under their belt. The bands latest album, “Affinity” came out in April of 2016. Haken comes to Columbus this coming  Tuesday, August 29 at 7:30 PM. The venue is Skully’s Music-Diner , 1151 N High St, Columbus, Ohio 43201.

Mike Portnoy, former drummer for iconic progressive rock band Dream Theater, and currently with the Winery Dogs, recently told Dream Theater Club “They’re all incredible musicians. I think Haken is this new generation’s prog-metal super band. They remind me of what I used to do with Dream Theater, but a modern-day version.”

Name of a fictional character…

“Haken” was the name of a fictional character some of the band members came up with in their school days, under the influence of alcohol or weed.

The band began to tour 2017 with Mike Portnoy and Neal Morse and band guitarist Eric Gillette performing the Twelve-step Suite in its entirety, and other Dream Theater songs. The band called itself Mike Portnoy’s Shattered Fortress.

Haken’s current line up consists of Richard Henshaw, keyboards and guitar, Charles Griffiths, guitar, Raymond Hearne, drummer, Diego Tejeida, Conner “America” Green, bass and Ross Jennings on vocals.

Haken is appearing at Skullys with Sithu Aye an English-Burmese musician and solo project guitarist based in United Kingdom and Scotland.

His latest album ‘Senpai EP II: The Noticing’ was released May 9, 2017. He has toured with artists such as Reflections, Protest The Hero and Cyclamen.
