Norwegian prog metallers Leprous will release their new album Coal on May 28th in North America (May 20th in Europe) via InsideOut Music. In anticipation of this release, the band is now revealing the cover artwork, which was conceived by American artist Jeff Jordan, who previously created the artwork for the band's last album Bilateral in addition to working with The Mars Volta. Feast your eyes on the cover below.
More details about the album can be found here and here, where you can also hear the album's first single "Chronic".
Leprous comments on the artwork: "The artwork for this album was a hard nut to crack. We wanted something dark, melancholic but with a distinct character. We tried several solutions without finding the perfect supplement for the music, before we decided to contact Jeff Jordan once again. Jeff immediately had wonderful ideas that we decided to pursue. The artwork of Coal is in my opinion the most iconic we've had so far."
