LEPROUS to release new album
“Malina” – New album from LEPROUS
Release Date: August 25th 2017
Available as:Limited Mediabook CD, CD, 2LP and Digital Download
“Malina” is set to be a change in direction in more ways than one. Right away, you can see that the cover art is more colorful and more mysterious than they’ve ever had in the past. The album itself has been nothing short of a labor of love. The album took 4 times as many days in the studio to record as past albums, as the band was certain that the sound they wanted would be found in the recording studio, and not in a digital mask that would be applied during the mixing stage. With this concept in mind, David Castillo of Ghostward Studios was brought in to produce and record the album to meet the band’s demands for a specific sound and the then went with Jens Bogren again to mix the album. The band was however adamant about what this album needed to be, “We wanted it to sound like it sounded. We did not want to "digitalise" the sound.”
The members of Leprous have poured their blood, sweat, and tears into the process of creating “Malina”. They’ve challenged themselves to mature and grow in ways they themselves did not expect. It’s because of these amazing qualities that the band is set to conquer the music scene once again in 2017. Combining a new album with a fresh sound with their upcoming, biggest headline tour yet Leprous is ready to bring their passion and badass energy to fans and new audiences worldwide this year.

“Malina” tour 2017 w/ Agent Fresco, AlithiA & Astrosaur
Agent Fresco are an Icelandic band, combining pop, alternative, art, metal, and math-rock, formed in 2008 just weeks prior to competing in the Músíktilraunir (an Icelandic version of Battle of the Bands) which they won. They also won "best guitar", "best drumming" and "best bass playing". Their first release was EP Lightbulb Univers.
The lead singer is Arnór Dan Arnarson (previously with Rosa – the Danish progressive-rock act from Sorø). Vignir Rafn Hilmarsson plays the electric upright bass, Hrafnkell Örn Guðjónsson the drums and Þórarinn Guðnason the guitar and piano / keyboards.
In late 2010, Agent Fresco released their first full-length album, A long Time Listening.
Destrier, their second full-length album, followed in August 7, 2015.
Astrosaur is a band from Oslo, Norway playing instrumental rock music.
"One of the biggest surprises of the festival was surely the acclaimed show of the young trio Astrosaur. Instrumental post-rock doesn’t even come close to do the band justice. The influences that have found their way into the sound landscapes are simply too copious. Sometimes spherically drifting, sometimes jazzily expansive, sometimes bluesy jamming, sometimes dynamically restrained, sometimes heavily dooming – even references to the early Mastodon and The Ocean’s instrumental masterpiece Pelagial can be found. Incredibly much happens during the mostly overlong compositions. Nevertheless do the Norwegians manage to build up a musical maelstrom and tell stories with highs and lows. Surely not an easy task without a lyrical component. With it come mostly abstract screen-projections especially tailored to the music; no stage lights are used except for two blue spots. Due to the skillful intertwining of songs there aren’t many opportunities for applauding, but those that arise are used all the more euphorically. Friends of experimental instrumental music should definitely keep this band on their radar." Metal Hammer Germany
