Leprous is giving audiences yet another preview of its fifth full-length studio release only days ahead of the album’s release.
The band unveiled ‘Iluminate,’ the third single from its forthcoming album Malina this week along with the single’s companion video. Shot in Romania and directed by Costin Chioreanu for Twilight 13 Media, the video puts the band performing its new single in a very darkly lit background in order to help illustrate the song’s message.
The band explained that in a collective statement about the song.
“‘Illuminate’ is one of the most groovy songs we’ve ever made! It’s the Leprous people know, but in a fresh version,” the statement reads. “The abstract and dark video from Costin underlines the atmosphere of the song perfectly.”
Prior to this single and video, the band also released the singles and videos for ‘From The Flame’ and ‘Stuck.’ Other songs included in Malina’s 11-song body include ‘’Mirage,’ ‘The Weight of Disaster,’ ‘Captive’ and others. The album’s full track listing is noted below.
Malina will be available in stores and online Friday, Aug. 25 via InsideOut Music on CD, digital, deluxe expanded CD and 2LP platforms. Pre-orders are open now.
Leprous will embark on an extensive European tour this fall in support of Malina that begins Oct. 28 in Copenhagen, Denmark and currently runs through Nov. 25 in Oslo, Norway. The tour also currently includes performances in Lyon, France; Dublin, Ireland; London, U.K. and other cities across Europe.
More dates are expected to be added to that schedule in the coming days and weeks. The band’s current tour schedule is noted below.
Presented in Germany by Eclipsed, Laut.de, Guitar & Metal.de
