Leprous Cancel 20th Anniversary U.S. Shows, Bassist Simen Børven To Miss Upcoming Tour

Leprous have cancelled their upcoming 20th anniversary shows in the U.S. Furthermore, the band have also revealed that bassist Simen Børven will be sitting out their tour with Apocalyptica and Wheel.

The group commented:

“This is a statement you’ve never heard from Leprous, and hopefully won’t have to hear again. We’ve had no choice but to cancel the 20th anniversary shows in the USA as Simen Børven won’t be able to join us on this tour due to private health related issues in his close family.

This is a very special show that we simply can’t do without Simen, and therefore we have no choice but pulling the plug. All tickets will of course be refunded. The shows with Apocalyptica and Wheel will still go on as planned, and Simen has pre-recorded all his bass for that show!”

Børven added:

“Hey guys. As much as I would like to tour the US a second time around this year – supporting Apocalyptica with my brothers in Leprous – I’ve made the hard choice of staying home from this tour, due to private health related reasons in my family.

As a family man, being on the road can be a challenging experience. Even though this nomadic lifestyle is a choice we’ve made together as a family, it puts us in a vulnerable position in some uncontrollable aspects of life – especially in regards to health. I’m thankful to the guys in Leprous for understanding our situation, and we wish them the best of luck in touring the great US of A ❤️

(On a lighter note: Luckily I’m just the bass player – It’s not like you’ll notice my absence anyways.. 😂)

Peace out✌️and see you in 🇧🇪 15th October”

Leprous Premiere “Nighttime Disguise” Music Video

Leprous have premiered a new video for their new song “Nighttime Disguise.” This track is from the band’s new album “Aphelion,“ which is available now.

The following was said about the clip in a press release:

“The music video for ‘Nighttime Disguise‘ is based on footage filmed and produced by the company Munin Live as part of the livestream project ‘Let’s write a song together’, which took place on January 2021 and for which the band was under the sights of video cameras 24/7 at the studio Ocean Sound Recordings to write this composition based on the vote of their fans.”

The band added:

“‘Nighttime Disguise‘ started as an experiment, where we let the fans join us virtually in the studio, and being able to vote for different parameters to write a song: Time signature(s), key(s), what kind of instruments, vocal style(s) and range, lyrical content etc. Our original plan was to have the result as a bonus track, but we ended up so happy with it that we couldn’t let it pass. Sometimes certain limitations force you to think differently and push you to new and more creative directions! This video shows a lot from the week of the songwriting, arrangement and production of ‘Nighttime Disguise‘.”

Leprous Announce “Aphelion” Livestream Performances

Leprous will be celebrating the release of their new album “Aphelion” (out August 27) by performing it in full during some virtual shows on August 25. The sets will stream live from the Notodden Teater in Notodden, Norway at 7:00pm CEST and at 7:00pm EDT. Tickets can be found HERE.

Leprous Premiere “Running Low” Music Video

Leprous have premiered a new video for their new song “Running Low.” This track is from the band’s new album “Aphelion,“ which will be released on August 27. 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.”
