I’ve been a champion of Norwegian prog rock/metal band Leprous for a while now. Their 2011 album Bilateral is an album I still blast, not just because of the amazing songwriting or the fantastic technicality but also because it’s just so damn fun! And for the longest time, I’ve been wanting the album on vinyl, which seemed like an impossible pipe dream. But no longer.
Finnish record label Blood Music has revealed details for the upcoming Bilateral vinyl reissue and I’m pretty much losing my mind. The album will be coming out on limited 2xLP multi-splatter with a frosted clear base (unf…) and is going to be available for pre-order in exactly one week.
Now, when I say this is limited, I mean it. There will only be 250 copies released, 100 for the USA/Canada and 150 for the rest of the world, so you better be ready next Thursday to snag your copy. The album will then be released on October 28th.
Head below to check out some artwork plans.
