I norvegesi LEPROUS stanno per tornare con il sesto e più ambizioso album della loro carriera. “Pitfalls” sarà pubblicato il 25 ottobre 2019 su Inside Out Music. L’album è preceduto da Malina

Einar Soldberg, cantante e tastierista dei Leprous, ha così commentato:

“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.”

“Pitfalls” è stato registrato da David Castillo presso i Ghostward Studios (Opeth, Katatonia) e mixato da Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, Deaf Havana). L’artwork è stato disegnato dal pittore indonesiano Elicia Edijanto.

Il video del primo singolo estratto da “Pitfalls” sarà pubblicato questo venerdì 30 agosto contemporaneamente al lancio del preorder del disco.

L’album sarà pubblicato nei seguenti formati:

  • limited Mediabook CD con due bonus track
  • Standard Jewelcase CD
