Leprous:  Present final line-up and dates for European headlining tour in October 2012!
LEPROUS, the much acclaimed prog metal newcomer-sensations from Norway, are still nowhere near to be taking a real rest from promoting their current album "Bilateral", which was released worldwide last August via InsideOutMusic.

After a highly successful 41 dates all across Europe supporting Amorphis as well as dates in Japan together with Ihsahn and The Haunted, LEPROUS have announced a full headlining run of Europe for October 2012, where the band will finally be performing their full live-set for their enthusiastic followers.

LEPROUS will be joined on this special tour, much suitably dubbed "European Progressive Assault", by Sweden's Loch Vostok, recent addition Persefone from Andorra and Norway's Ørkenkjøtt.

Here is an updated list of shows with ticket links as well as newly confirmed media sponsors:

LEPROUS have checked in to comment on the tour as follows: "We're really looking forward to hit the European road as headliners in October, and now that we're starting to see all those familiar places the 'European Progressive Assault' will take us to, we can also start planning what to play for you guys this time around. Hope you're interested in getting a little taste of our next album, which is also beginning to take form these days."

The promotional video clip for the song "Restless" off the band's acclaimed "Bilateral" album can be seen HERE.

A free InsideOutMusic digital sampler including the LEPROUS song "Thorn" (which features a guest vocal appearance of former Emperor frontman Ihsahn) can be downloaded HERE.

"Bilateral" wurde von Jens Bogren in den Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Pain Of Salvation, Devin Townsend, Symphony X, usw.) gekonnt gemixt/gemastert und das Album zeichnet sich neben der Musik auch durch das herausragende Cover-Artwork von dem surrealistischen Künstler Jeff Jordan (www.jeffjordanart.com) aus, der bereits u.a. für The Mars Volta gearbeitet hat.

Einar Solberg - synth/vocals
