Den norske progressive rock gruppe Leprous har offentliggjort at de har færdig indspillet, mikset og masteret deres nye album. Albummet som har fået titlen „Coal“ er sat til at udkomme den 20. maj igennem Inside Out Music/EMI.
Gruppens frontmand Einar Solberg har givet følgende udtalelse:
"With our upcoming album "Coal" I feel we are one step closer to a personal expression. Heidi Solberg Tveitan and Vegard Tveitan of Mnemosyne were the producers of this album, together with LEPROUS. They helped us a lot with reaching the full potential of the songs, and the album would not be equally good without their expertise.
Jens Bogren and Tony Lindgren @ Fascination Street Studios mixed the material
and have made this album shine like nobody else could.
I see less interest in defining music than in creating music, but I will give a short overview on what to expect...
"Coal" is a more melancholic and darker album than the more playful "Bilateral". By darker I don't mean more aggressive, but more severe. There is still a big range in the dynamics, but no jumping between different moods within a song. We cannot wait to show this album to the world!"
