Leprous To Release New Album “Malina” In August, Announce European/UK Tour


0

Leprous will have their new album “Malina” in stores on August 25th via InsideOut Music. The band recorded the effort at Ghost Ward in Ă…rsta, Sweden with David Castillo (Candlemass, Katatonia). Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia) took on the mixing duties. The band’s vocalist/keyboardist Einar Solberg commented:

“This album is the perfect example of how you can start with a vision and end up with a result that has nothing to do with the original idea. The writing of the album started out with the idea to perfect the sound and working method we began with on ‘The Congregation‘. While the writing process was actually pretty similar (30 sketches, elimination process etc etc) we gradually started noticing stuff with the sound and the songwriting on the previous album that we wanted to sound different. Gradually we realized what needed to be done. This album needs to sound more alive, more organic and more dynamic.”

David immediately understood where we wanted to go. We spent probably 4 times as many days in the studio as with any other recording we’ve done, for we’ve come to learn that if you want to sound unique that is primarily done during recordings, not the mix. We wanted it to sound like it sounded. We did not want to ‘digitalize’ the sound.”

“We feel with ‘Malina‘ that we’ve managed to achieve a natural sounding organic album with great songs that still sounds modern. Organic doesn’t necessarily equal ‘retro’. While we still very much sound like Leprous, I believe that with this album we more accurately define as a rock band than a metal band. We’re insanely proud of this album, and can’t wait to share it with you all.”
