Leprous Release New Single, “Running Low,” Announce Aphelion Album


Leprous have announced a new album, Aphelion, and unveiled its first single, “Running Low,” along with a music video.

Leprous vocalist/keyboardist Einar Solberg commented:

“The initial idea for ‘Running Low’ started when I had decided to force myself to write a sketch on my phone on a way up to a mountain top called Himingen in Telemark, Norway. It felt completely pointless while I was doing it, but when I came back, I was able to go further with it and actually structure it into a proper composition. Then we met up in Cederberg Studios together with the band to take it even further. This song is a proof that even the smallest sparks can turn into a big flame. Despite being a band who always wants to explore new territories, I believe ‘Running Low’ can easily unite both our old and new fan base.”

Aphelion comes out on August 27 via InsideOut Music; pre-order here.

The band released another single, “Castaway Angels,” in December 2020; it’s not clear yet whether that will be included on Aphelion.
