Leprous - The Congregation

Norwegian progsters Leprous are set to release their newest studio album, “The Congregation“, on May 25th, 2015 in Europe and June 2nd, 2015 in North America via InsideOut Music.

The album’s epic artwork, which was created by artist Nihil / www.nihil.fr, has now been launched (to be seen above!) and here is also the tracklisting for the 65 minutes long release:

LEPROUS – “The Congregation”:

1. The Price
2. Third Law
3. Rewind
4. The Flood
5. Triumphant
6. Within My Fence
7. Red
8. Slave
9. Moon
10. Down
11. Lower

Leprous comment on the cover artwork as follows: ”The artwork represents the album’s dark theme very well by showing deformation and disturbance.

The Congregation” will be available as standard Jewelcase CD, Digital Download as well as on limited editions as Mediabook CD and 2LP featuring a bonus track entitled “Pixel.”

Leprous have recorded the drums, guitars and bass for the album in Sweden’s Fascination Street / Ghostward Studios with David Castillo (Katatonia, Opeth) and the vocals together with Heidi Solberg Tveitan and Vegard Tveitan at Mnemosyne Studios in Norway. Just like the preceding albums “Bilateral” and “Coal“, “The Congregation” was mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Symphony X, Kreator).

A first of various video teasers featuring recording studio footage for the making of “The Congregation” can be now seen here.

Leprous are currently busy working on the new album’s first video clip together with Twitchy Films, who also worked on the band’s previous clips.

The band will embark on an European tour in support of the new album. Here is an overview of all upcoming Leprous live-dates announced so far:
