Haken Turned Into Puppets For Cockroach King Video
"Cockroach King is definitely the most classic prog sounding song from the record," Haken explain. "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.
They add, "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!" Watch the video here.
