Leprous has announced a new, extensive, tour schedule.
The Norwegian prog-metal band has announced an extensive new tour schedule. The tour includes a 23-date North American headlining tour beginning Tuesday, September 27th in Atlanta, Georgia. The tour will take the band throughout both the United States and Canada and wraps Saturday, October 27th in Mexico City, Mexico. The band is also scheduled to perform at a trio of festivals, one of which is in the midst of that North American tour. The other two festivals come ahead of and following the band’s upcoming tour. After the band wraps its North American Tour it will take off the rest of the year in order to rest and recharge for its European tour with Between The Buried and Me and Devin Townsend Project. That tour launches January 28th in Antwerpen, Belgium and runs through March 10th in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Vocalist and keyboardist Einar Solberg discussed the European tour in a recent interview noting, “We’re very happy to be a part of such a fantastic tour package, and it will be pure joy to play together with both Between The Buried And Me and Devin Townsend Project! We believe this tour can help us up to the next level, and that there are many potential new followers to convince here!” Both of the band’s upcoming tour schedules are noted below.
01.31.2017 Paris (France) – Bataclan
02.01.2017 Bordeaux (France) – Rockschool Barbey
02.03.2017 Madrid (Spain) – La Reviera
Along with its upcoming tour dates, the band is also putting the finishing touches on its new live DVD, which is currently set to be released later this year. Its title has not yet been revealed. Solberg discussed the DVD in his interview, too noting what fans can expect from the recording in comparison to so many other live recordings out there. “The recording of the DVD went great, and it was one of the best nights of our career so far!,” he said. We just received the rough mix of the Audio, and we can tell that it’s definitely approved. On most live albums these days, bands are re-recording most of the stuff afterwards in the studio, to make it sound “perfect”. For us that’s out of question. We wanna keep the live feel, especially to give a big contrast to the rather “perfected” studio albums! Definitely more organic!”
Leprous’ new live DVD and its upcoming tour are in support of its most recent full-length studio recording The Congregation. It is still available now in standard jewel case CD, digital download, limited edition Media Book CD, and 2LP platform. The 2LP platform also includes a bonus track titled ‘Pixel.’ The album can be purchased in physical form throughout Europe from the IOM web shop. While audiences await the band’s upcoming live dates and live DVD, they can check out the video for ‘The Price’ now here. It is one of the songs included in the body of The Congregation. Audiences can also view the lyric video for ‘Slave’ online via the band’s official YouTube channel. ‘Rewind’ is streaming in full now also via SoundCloud.
