Melodies Of Atonement from Leprous

Norwegian Rock outfit Leprous will see their eighth studio album, Melodies Of Atonement, released worldwide in August via InsideOutMusic worldwide.

Melodies of Atonement is the name of our new album and like every band on earth thinks about their new album, we feel like it’s our best one so far!” declared the band, adding: “But in this case, it happens to be true.

“The orchestral elements are gone, which gives more space for each individual band member to shine. It’s straight to the point, and heavier than what we’ve been in a while… It’s a new sound. But it’s still Leprous. We can’t wait for you to hear it!”

Einar Solberg (Vocals/keyboards), Tor Oddmund Suhrke and Robin Ognedal (Guitars), Simen Børven (Bass) and Baard Kolstad (Drums), recorded the album but recently with David Castillo at Ghost Ward Studios in Sweden.

It was mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves) and mastered with Robin Schmidt (The 1975, Placebo, The Gaslight Anthem). The album’s front cover artwork was created based on photography by John Dolan and design by Ritxi Ostáriz.

More details on the record are expected soon, as is a new single taken from the parent album, however, Leprous has just announced their first North American headline tour with special guests Monuments and support act Fight The Fight, this Autumn.

 “We can’t wait to tour North America again together with our good friends in Monuments and Fight The Fight,” said the band. “It’s been too long and we’re super eager to come back!”
