Leprous:  European tour with Devin Townsend Project starts this weekend; Next song off "Live At Rockefeller Music Hall" release launched!
Norwegian prog metallers LEPROUS are about to kick off a massive run of dates this weekend supporting Devin Townsend Project and Between The Buried And Me across Europe as well as Devin Townsend Project and Tesseract in the UK.

Therefore, the band is now launching a next song off their current and first-ever live DVD/CD/LP release, "Live At Rockefeller Music Hall", which was released in November via InsideOut Music.

Check out one of the most extreme and experimental LEPROUS tracks, "Contaminate Me", which features special guest appearances by Emperor frontman Ihsahn, former LEPROUS drummer Tobias Ørnes Andersen and violinist Håkon Aase, here:

LEPROUS commented on the track as follows:
"It was an honour for us having such a fantastic guest appearance from our good friend Ihsahn on this very special evening! And together with the great Håkon Aase on violin and the extra support of Tobias Ørnes Andersen himself on drums, this was a worthy final!"

Recorded live at a hometown show in Oslo on June 4th, 2016, "Live At Rockefeller Music Hall" was directed by Costin Chioreanu and its audio was recorded/mixed by David Castillo as well as mastered by Tony Lindgren of Fascination Street Studios. The live release is available as limited DVD+2CD Digipak, standalone DVD, 2CD Jewelcase, Gatefold 3LP on black vinyl + 2CD or as Digital Download audio.
