LEPROUS: New Album Update

LEPROUS: New Album Update

Norwegian progressive metallers LEPROUS are back in the studio working on the follow-up album to 2013's acclaimed album "Coal". The as-yet-untitled new CD is scheduled for a May 2015 release via InsideOut Music.

Says LEPROUS in a statement: "We're super stoked about the new material we have composed. It's not really 'Coal' material, following our mantra about not making the same album twice.

"The writing process has been very different this time. Most of the music has been made by Einar, on a computer. Almost all the guitar riffs, for example (and Einar has no idea about how to play guitar…), so the guitar players were up for a challenge.

"At the moment, we're finished recording drums, and Baard has delivered a stunning performance, so now it's time for the rest of us to lay down the guitars, bass and keys, before we round the whole thing up with vocals-recordings in the beginning of the New Year.

"Mixing and mastering will take place in late January, so we expect a release in May, but all of that is up to our label. Right now, we're just concentrating on doing our part to perfection."

LEPROUS recorded the drums for the new album at Sweden's Fascination Street / Studio Gröndal with David Castillo (KATATONIA, OPETH) and will — just like on "Coal" and its predecessor, "Bilateral" — be mixing the album with Jens Bogren at Fascination Street.

Extensive touring plans are already in the works for LEPROUS and will be revealed soon.
