The seven-date jaunt sees them playing North America’s largest prog-friendly festival, Atlanta’s ProgPower, after which the band heads west then north into Canada, ending up with dates in New York City and Virginia before heading home.
Leprous appeared only once before in America, when in 2010 they played a ProgPower pre-festival gig in Atlanta. The band members played the festival itself a year later as back-up band for Ihsahn (the solo excursion of Emperor’s guitarist/vocalist), a role they have fulfilled for nearly 10 years. This is Leprous’s first-ever multi-show trip through North America. They will be supporting their phenomenal Coal album, released in 2013 on InsideOut.
