Leprous has dropped a preview of their upcoming album Melodies of Atonement with the release of the single "Atonement" and its accompanying video. The video, directed by Dariusz Szermanowicz (Behemoth, Morbid Angel), was filmed in Poland.

 Frontman/songwriter Einar Solberg shred the following:

The beginning of the process of writing melodies for the new album started right after our Aphelion tour in March of last year. The goal for that album was to remove all the orchestral elements and focus everything ore around the actual members of the band. The symphonic parts, I will take further in my solo project later on. It's a change for Leprous for sure. The goal was to be more straight-to-the-point and more pure, in a way, to emphasize our qualities more, by adding less.

'Atonement' is a different kind of single than what we've done before. It's heavy, it's catchy and it's straight-to-the-point. It's a song we believe will unify old and new fans at the same time as it has a fresh and new sound… This is the sound of Leprous in 2024.




Melodies of Atonement was recorded with David Castillo at Ghost Ward Studios in Sweden, mixed by Adam Noble (Biffy Clyro, Placebo, Nothing But Thieves) and mastered by Robin Schmidt (The 1975, The Gaslight Anthem).
