Leprous A Must See


New DVD’s and shows announced

After having recently recorded a hometown show in Oslo for an upcoming DVD / live album release, Norwegian prog metallers LEPROUS have announced further live action in support of their current album “The Congregation”, which was released worldwide via InsideOutMusic.

The next live campaign steps include some European festival dates in the summer, a North American headline run in September/October as well as a massive European tour supporting Devil Townsend Project alongside Between The Buried And Me.

LEPROUS vocalist and keyboardist Einar Solberg checked in about the recent DVD shoot as follows:

“The recording of the DVD went great, and it was one of the best nights of our career so far! We just received the rough mix of the Audio, and we can tell that it’s definitely approved. On most live albums these days, bands are re-recording most of the stuff afterwards in the studio, to make it sound “perfect”. For us that’s out of question. We wanna keep the live feel, especially to give a big contrast to the rather “perfected” studio albums! Definitely more organic!”

And he added the following comment about the upcoming European tour:

“We’re very happy to be a part of such a fantastic tour package, and it will be pure joy to play together with both Between The Buried And Me and Devin Townsend Project! We believe this tour can help us up to the next level, and that there are many potential new followers to convince here!”
