Haken Premiere New Single & Music Video “Taurus” From Upcoming New Album “Fauna”

British progressive rock/metal act Haken premiere a third single and music video named “Taurus“. The track is from their upcoming seventh full-length album, “Fauna“, which will be released on March 03rd, 2023.

Tells frontman Ross Jennings:

“With such a diverse and eclectic array of material on ‘Fauna’, it was important for us to include a piece of music that represented the metallic edge of our sound which was exploited predominantly on ‘Vector’ & ‘Virus’, with our focus being on hard hitting riffs in odd time signatures.

The song’s lyrics were written roughly at the same time we all started hearing about the devastation and crisis happening in Ukraine. I was already writing the piece based on the annual migration of the wildebeests with strong references to people travelling in herds and strength in numbers.

Suddenly I realised I had an anchor for what the song could be about and knowing this gives it all the more emotional weight; We’re all on some sort of journey towards salvation or enlightenment. Sometimes out of choice or not, we need to leave the past behind us and make new beginnings. We only have each other, and belief and hope are our strongest allies.”

The band will be out touring Europe, the UK & North America this year, stopping at the below cities.
