LEPROUS announce release of new album ‘Pitfalls’

Burgeoning Norwegian Rock outfit LEPROUS return with their sixth and most ambitious studio album to date entitled “Pitfalls”, set for release on October 25th, 2019 worldwide via InsideOutMusic. “Pitfalls” was once again recorded with David Castillo at Ghostward Studios (Opeth, Katatonia), but this time mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, Deaf Havana). The cover artwork was painted by Indonesian artist Elicia Edijanto.

The album will be available as limited Mediabook CD with two bonus tracks, as Standard Jewelcase CD and as Gatefold 2LP on 180gr. vinyl (On black vinyl and various limited coloured editions) with the album on CD as bonus and an Etching on the D-Side.

LEPROUS vocalist and keyboardist Einar Solberg comments on the upcoming album: “We’re incredibly proud to announce ‘Pitfalls’! It’s the album no-one is expecting from Leprous. When you think you know where it’s headed, you’ll realize that you’re wrong. It’s not only by far the biggest production and musical departure we’ve done, but the also most personal and honest. The album has been written through one of my toughest years, where I struggled with depression and anxiety. No filters, no metaphors, just the truth. They say that writing music is therapeutic. but I would say that it’s an understatement. For me ‘Pitfalls’ is the result of 1,5 years of learning how to get through the dark tunnel. The music has been my torch.”

The band have also shared a video trailer speaking about their acclaimed previous album “Malina” in retrospect and in light of the upcoming release. You can watch it on the video link above.
