Norwegian Rock outfit LEPROUS are now launching the second single, “Alleviate”, off their sixth and most ambitious studio album “Pitfalls”, which is to be released on October 25th, 2019 worldwide via InsideOutMusic.

Check out “Alleviate” in a video directed by Troll Toftenes / Vardøger Story Agency here:

LEPROUS vocalist and keyboardist Einar Solberg comments on “Alleviate” as follows: “’Alleviate’ is a very important song to me. It carries hope within the melancholy. Not only is it one of, if not the most accessible tune we’ve ever done, but it also carries a deeper message. No doubt it for some will be a controversial track considering where LEPROUS started, but that’s what LEPROUS is all about: Moving forward! Also we couldn’t be happier about the amazing piece of visual art done by the extremely talented video director Troll Toftenes“.

Also check out the album’s first single “Below” in a video directed by Dariusz Szermanowicz / Grupa13 (Behemoth, Kreator, Amon Amarth) here: https://youtu.be/4nPwBSaJmgI

“Pitfalls” was once again recorded with David Castillo at Ghostward Studios (Opeth, Katatonia), but this time mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, Deaf Havana). The cover artwork is a painting from Indonesian artist Elicia Edijanto. The album’s regular track-listing reads as follows:
