Hot News: Leprous -­ Starting recordings for new album; Launch 1st studio video; Festival appearances 2013 announced!

After spending a very eventful and busy year 2012 promoting their latest album release, “Bilateral”, acclaimed Norwegian Progsters LEPROUS have now started their recording sessions for the upcoming, still untitled next studio album, to be released before the Summer 2013 worldwide via InsideOutMusic.

LEPROUS singer / synth-player Einar Solberg checked with a status report as follows:

“As many of you already know, we’ve started recording our new album. The drums are finished, and we’re now focusing on the guitars. Also this time we’re using Vegard “Ihsahn” Tveitan and Heidi “StarOfAsh” S. Tveitan as our producers / technicians. The drums were recorded in the really cool and old school Juke Joint Studio (, and we’re really satisfied with the result.
As far as the new music, we can only remind you that LEPROUS will never be the kind of band to re-create the mood from previous works, and it’s very important for us that each album has its own strong character.
We have great belief in this album and we promise something fresh, challenging and soulful! This album will also be mixed and mastered by Mr. Jens Bogren @ Fascination Street Studios.”

After a successful run headlining the “European Progressive Assault” tour our all over Europe this past October, LEPROUS are not only already working on next touring plans for 2013, but have also started confirming some prominent Summer festival slots (Wacken, Hellfest, Tuska, etc.) as well as special international shows in countries like Serbia (making up for a cancelled show-date on the past tour!) as well as Israel in January.
