Leprous: More details of new album and live dates announced.


Leprous have unveiled the cover art and track listing for fifth album The Congregation, set for launch on May 25 via InsideOut.

The follow-up to 2013’s Coal contains 11 tracks and it’ll be on sale in standard CD, mediabook CD, double-vinyl and digital versions.

Leprous say of artist Nihil’s sleeve work: “It represents the album's dark theme very well, by showing deformation and disturbance.”

Confirming the release last month, vocalist Einar Solberg said: “This has without doubt been the most challenging album to write so far, if you count the amount of hours, blood, sweat and tears behind it.

“It makes me extra-proud to have delivered the master of what I consider the most daring, technical, fresh and mature album we’ve done.”

The band return to the UK in October:

Oct 13: London Garage
Oct 14: Manchester Ruby Lounge
Oct 15: Bristol Fleece
