Creative Norwegian Rock outfit LEPROUS have announced the release of their new studio album “Aphelion”, coming August 27th, 2021 worldwide.
Following up on 2019’s highly acclaimed “Pitfalls” album, LEPROUS recorded “Aphelion” throughout the last year at three different studios: Ghost Ward Studios in Sweden, Ocean Sound Recordings in Norway and Cederberg Studios in Norway. The album was once again mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, etc.), mastered by Robin Schmidt (The 1975, Placebo, The Gaslight Anthem, etc.) with its front cover artwork – designed by Elena Sigida, based on photography by Øystein Aspelund.
LEPROUS vocalist/keyboardist Einar Solberg checked in about “Aphelion” as follows:
“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.
Look out for the album pre-order to start on June 25th, 2021, enhanced by the release of a new single!
