Haken Launch Puppet Video For Cockroach King
Haken have transformed themselves into puppets for their latest video – view Cockroach King 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’.”
Discussing 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!”
The Mountain is available now via InsideOut Records. Haken will play a one-off show with labelmates Maschine at London’s Borderline on November 24.
