After spending a very eventful and busy year promoting latest album release "Bilateral" (reviewed here), acclaimed Norwegian progsters Leprous have now started the recording sessions for an upcoming, currently untitled, studio album set to be released before summer 2013 worldwide via InsideOut Music.

Leprous singer / synth-player Einar Solberg checked in with a status report: "As many of you already know, we've started recording our new album. The drums are finished, and we're now focusing on the guitars. Also this time we're using Vegard 'Ihsahn' Tveitan and Heidi 'StarOfAsh' S. Tveitan as our producers / technicians. The drums were recorded in the really cool and old school Juke Joint Studio, and we're really satisfied with the result.

"As far as the new music, we can only remind you that Leprous will never be the kind of band to re-create the mood from previous works, and it's very important for us that each album has its own strong character. We have great belief in this album and we promise something fresh, challenging and soulful! This album will also be mixed and mastered by Mr. Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios."
