Leprous album set for release
Official press release: After finishing off a very eventful past year of promotions for their previous album release, Bilateral, acclaimed Norwegian progsters Leprous entered the studio to start recording their next album after wrapping up their "European Progressive Assault" headlining tour in September/October 2012. This new album is entitled Coal, and it will be released on May 20th in Europe and on May 28th in North America via InsideOut Music. Leprous singer/synth-player Einar Solberg comments about the release:
"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 at 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!"
