Leprous to release new album ‘Pitfalls’ in October

Posted by on August 27, 2019

Leprous have announced their new album Pitfalls is scheduled to arrive on October 25th via InsideOutMusic. The Norwegian progressive rock outfit have once again teamed up with David Castillo to record the album at Ghostward Studios (Opeth/Katatonia) as it was mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo,Nothing But Thieves). This marks the group’s overall sixth studio effort as vocalist/keyboardist Einar Solberg commented:  

 “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 group have released a new video trailer as they reflect on 2017’s Malina
