HAKEN // L-1VE - 2CD + 2DVD DIGIPAK
RELEASE DATE: 22.06.2018
Following the release of the band's much-acclaimed fourth studio album ‘Affinity’, they embarked upon their 10th-anniversary tour across Europe & North America. Recorded and filmed on the 13th April 2017, at the legendary Melkweg venue on the Amsterdam stop of that tour, this represents the band’s first-ever live document with tracks from across the band's discography.
The setlist focussed heavily on their 2 most recent critically acclaimed albums 'Affinity' (2016) and 'The Mountain' (2013) with a 22-minute encore of the title track from 'Visions' (2011). However, the centerpiece for the album has to be the beast that is “Aquamedley” which sees the band celebrating and performing excerpts from their debut album “Aquarius” (2010) - a story of a mermaid born into a corrupt human world and who's sacrifice is the savior of humanity from a great flood. Drawing from 6 out of 7 of the tracks, this 25-minute medley strings the compositions together seamlessly.
‘L-1VE’ will be released as a 2CD/2DVD Digipak package & as a digital download. The DVD will include 4 bonus tracks filmed at ProgPower USA 2016 that also include Mike Portnoy’s cameo appearance on gong, as well as all of the official videos from the ‘Affinity’ album. The live audio was mixed by Jerry Guidroz, known for his work with Neal Morse and Winery Dogs.
