In a time where progressive music is rising and there are so many options available to new listeners, it takes serious guts and personality to turn heads anymore.  Norway’s Leprous has done just that in recent years, and it has been such a joy to watch them emerge into the limelight of awareness within the progressive community.  It is no wonder, however, as Leprous continues to mature and to cling ever closer to their hearts when crafting new music.

Leprous is a visionary band that defies genre labelling, not just in the style, but also in their attitude.  After releasing “Tall Poppy Syndrome” (2009), “Bilateral” (2011) and “Coal” (2013); these artists released their monster album “The Congregation” (2015) that spurred high acclaim and an enormous world tour.  Leprous, however, is not a band that takes success resting on their hind quarters, as they believe in pushing boundaries, learning from their mistakes, and following their instincts.  They are prepared to release their new album “Malina” this summer, and it is set to offer a left hook to the progressive world.

“Malina” is set to be a change in direction in more ways than one.  Right away, you can see that the cover art is more colorful and more mysterious than they’ve ever had in the past.  The album itself has been nothing short of a labor of love. The album took 4 times as many days in the studio to record as past albums, as the band was certain that the sound they wanted would be found in the recording studio, and not in a digital mask that would be applied during the mixing stage. 

With this concept in mind, David Castillo of Ghostward Studios was brought in to produce and record the album to meet the band’s demands for a specific sound and the then went with Jens Bogren again to mix the album.  The band was however adamant about what this album needed to be, “We wanted it to sound like it sounded. We did not want to "digitalise" the sound.”
The members of Leprous have poured their blood, sweat, and tears into the process of creating “Malina”.  They’ve challenged themselves to mature and grow in ways they themselves did not expect.  It’s because of these amazing qualities that the band is set to conquer the music scene once again in 2017.  Combining a new album with a fresh sound with their upcoming, biggest headline tour yet Leprous is ready to bring their passion and badass energy to fans and new audiences worldwide this year.
