Norwegian progressive metallers Leprous have released the first single from their upcoming album Coal. The album is due for release May 28th in North America and May 20 in Europe via InsideOut Music and is the band’s fifth full length album. The record was produced by Heidi Solberg Tveitan & Vegard Tveitan of Mnemosyne, and Jens Bogren & Tony Lindgren mixed and mastered the album at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Symphony X, Kreator).

Leprous singer/synth-player Einar Solberg had this to say about the song:
“We’re delighted to finally be able to give you the first taste of our upcoming album ‘Coal’! ‘Coal’ is a melancholic, soulful and very dynamic album. Where ‘Bilateral’ was playful and ‘in-your face’, ‘Coal’ is subtle and floating. ‘Chronic’ however, is of the more dynamic songs of the album. With a heavy basis, the song pinches a nerve LEPROUS has never before explored.”
