Leprous Announce New Album

2021-06-09 by Fernando Alves STAFF | 26 Comments
Norwegian progressive rockers Leprous have just announced that their next album, Aphelion, will be released on August 27th through InsideOut Music. The new full-length was recorded in three different studios and it was mixed by Adam Noble and mastered by Robin Schmidt.

Einar Solberg comments: "We had no plans to start with a new album, then came Covid. 'Aphelion' is a very different album. It's intuitive and spontaneous. We've experimented with many completely different ways of writing music and explored new ways to work. There has been no room for overthinking, exaggerated perfectionism or carefully planned songs. I believe this is one of the strengths of this album. It feels alive, it feels free and it does not come across as too calculated. The album was recorded in three different studios, and a few of the songs were actually recorded in all three studios, Ghost Ward Studios, Ocean Sound Recordings and Cederberg Studios. The aphelion is the point in the orbit of an object where it is farthest from the sun, and it has a symbolic value which I will leave to your own interpretation."

I just hope it's a little more exciting than Pitfalls. That was a chore for the most part.

Really loved the direction of pitfalls so long may it continue.
But if we got some Bilateral type tunes on here id be a happy man.

It's a metaphor from them being really far from good music

Will this be a Einar Solberg album or a Leprous album. Not happy with the last one although it was good in it's own right.

Well, the band already dismissed Pitfalls being a ''Einar album''. If anything, I think The Congregation was that.
