Update about the coming LEPROUS album

Norwegian prog band Leprous are back in the studio. They are working on the new album that follows the 2013 release “Coal”. The still untitled new album is expected for a May 2015 release via InsideOutMusic.

The band gave an update right from the studio:
"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 also confirmed some first live dates for summer 2015. So far it is three festival shows:
Sat. 11.07.2015 Barcelona (Spain) - BeProgMyFriend Festival
Sat. 03.10.2015 Cologne (Germany) - Euroblast Festival
Sun. 04.10.2015 Baarlo (The Netherlands) - Progpower Europe
