Leprous - New Album Complete, Title Announced


Prepare yourself for new prog coming this May because Leprous have officially completed the work on their new album and successor to Bilateral. The new album is entitled Coal and it will be released on May 20th, 2013 in Europe and May 28th, 2013 in North America via InsideOut.

Leprous singer/synth-player Einar Solberg comments on the release as follows: "With our upcoming album Coal I feel we are one step closer to a personal expression. Heidi Solberg Tveitan and Vegard Tveitan of Mnemosyne were the producers of this album, together with Leprous. They helped us a lot with reaching the full potential of the songs, and the album would not be equally good without their expertise. Jens Bogren and Tony Lindgren @ Fascination Street Studios mixed the material and have made this album shine like nobody else could.

I see less interest in defining music than in creating music, but I will give a short overview on what to expect... Coal is a more melancholic and darker album than the more playful Bilateral. By darker I don't mean more aggressive, but more severe. There is still a big range in the dynamics, but no jumping between different moods within a song. We cannot wait to show this album to the world!"

Additionally, Leprous are currently announcing a long full European headlining tour for October and November of 2013. Follow the dates revealed on the band's Facebook page.

Was disappointed when I read this yesterday; I quite enjoyed the band's eclectic personality. Hopefully the album will prove me wrong :S

Cool. I would be pleased of they go for a darker sound and think this could be even better that bilateral.

Rein Blomquist (bass) is missing in the press release, when asked in their Facebook page (on multiple occasions) they seem to ignore it.

Maybe Halvor returns?
I wish if they would do more from the Tall Poppy Syndrome material... I still love that album. Bilateral was kind of meh.

I'm pretty sure I saw him on the bass when they were in Israel last month. Not sure though, was too drunk to really pay attention.

Pogoing with Einar was fun though.
