LEPROUS frontman Einar Solberg checked in with the following comment about “Atonement”:

“‘Atonement’ is a different kind of single than what we’ve done before. It’s heavy, it’s catchy and straight to the point. It’s a song we believe will unify old and new fans at the same time as it has a fresh and new sound…This is the sound of LEPROUS in 2024.”

The video for the single “Atonement” is now out, you can view it below below

“Melodies Of Atonement” was recorded with David Castillo at Ghost Ward Studios in Sweden, mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves, etc.) and mastered by Robin Schmidt (The 1975, Placebo, The Gaslight Anthem, etc.).
