Leprous have released a drum video for the 11-minute swansong The Sky Is Red, taken from their current album Pitfalls.

Says drummer Baard Kolstad, “I always like to do full honest video playthroughs of certain Leprous songs after the different album recording processes. A nice way to share details and a different kind of energy for the listener/viewer. There’s no secret that The Sky Is Red is a tough one and after 27 shows playing it live, it’s interesting to see how the interpretation of the song and performance has evolved and changed.”

Leprous begin the second leg of their tour in Germany on February 8. They’ll head to UK in August when they play at ArcTanGent Festival near Bristol and are expected to confirm more live shows soon.

The band say: “The shows and response of the first leg of the Pitfalls European tour was mind-blowing, and we had some of the greatest moments of our career. There was no doubt we needed to play way more territories and countries for this album than 'only four weeks', so here we go again, with a full production, headlining for three more weeks in several new countries that never have seen the new live show. Klone and Maraton as guests! We cannot wait!”
