(Prog) Rising British prog band Haken have announced that they have parted ways with bassist Tom MacLean. The news comes within weeks of the band releasing their acclaimed third album The Mountain, the band's first for new label InsideOut.
In a statement, the band say: It is with deep regret that we have to announce Tom's departure from Haken. As well as being a gifted musician, Tom is a great friend and it has been a pleasure and an honour to call him a band mate for the past six years.
"We've shared so many amazing experiences together and will never forget those times! We are immensely grateful for his wisdom and dedication, without which Haken would not be where it is today. We of course remain close friends and want everyone to know that there is no animosity between us whatsoever. Tom can explain the situation better than us." Read what he had to say here.
