Norwegian Rock outfit Leprous recently announced the coming of their new, 8th studio album entitled “Melodies Of Atonement” to be released in August via Inside Out Music worldwide.

Kicking off the album campaign and their triumphant return, Leprous have released a stunning and captivating new single/video entitled “Atonement”. Filmed in Poland and directed by Dariusz Szermanowicz, “Atonement” presents a fresh and dynamic side of the band sonically and visually, creating something thrillingly new yet reassuringly familiar for old and new fans of Leprous alike.

Leprous frontman Einar Solberg checked in with the following comment about “Atonement”: “’Atonement’ is a different kind of single than what we’ve done before. It’s heavy, it’s catchy, and straight to the point. It’s a song we believe will unify old and new fans at the same time as it has a fresh and new sound…This is the sound of Leprous in 2024.”

The band previously commented about “Melodies Of Atonement”: “’Melodies of Atonement’ is the name of our new album and like every band on Earth thinks about their new album, we feel like it’s our best one so far! But in this case, it happens to be true…The orchestral elements are gone, which gives more space for each individual band member to shine. It’s straight to the point, and heavier than what we’ve been in a while…It’s a new sound. But it’s still Leprous. We can’t wait for you to hear it!”

Leprous recorded “Melodies Of Atonement” across the last months with David Castillo at Ghost Ward Studios in Sweden, while mixing with Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, etc.) and mastering with Robin Schmidt (The 1975, Placebo, The Gaslight Anthem, etc.).

The album’s front cover artwork was created based on photography by John Dolan and design by Ritxi Ostáriz.
