LEPROUS – Launch “On Hold (Live In Studio)” video and European tour starting next month!

9th January 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

Norwegian Rock outfit LEPROUS have just launched a brand new “Live in Studio” video clip for their song “On Hold”, taken from their current album “Aphelion”, in order to promote their upcoming European tour starting February 1st as well as the special ‘Tour Edition’ of “Aphelion”, to be released on February 3rd, 2023 via InsideOutMusic. 

The audio for “On Hold (Live in Studio)” was recorded and mixed by Thomas Wang at Urban Sound Studios and the video clip was directed by Troll Toftenes.

LEPROUS commented as follows: “For the first time we chose to release a live recording/video from the studio. We decided to do this in order to capture and show a LEPROUS song in more detail and so allow the fans to get even more into our vibe. This footage was collected as a part of our latest rehearsals before our ambitious European tour taking place from February 1st until March 18th. We are looking forward to seeing you all soon…”

The “Aphelion (Tour Edition)” release will be available both as a limited 2CD Digipak and as a Digital album (2CD) featuring the original “Aphelion” album, its two initial bonus tracks as well as a separate, brand-new live bonus disc of 6 tracks/40 min. recorded this year during the first leg of the “Aphelion” touring campaign at the Motocultor Festival in France and in Berlin, Germany.
