LEAH The Glory and the Fallen to be Released 16 February 2024 – First Single “Archangel” Out Now! 

Record-Breaking Crowdfunding Campaign Raised $83,000+  for The Glory and the Fallen Album Dropping February 16th!

LEAH’s upcoming sixth album The Glory and the Fallen marks a new evolution for the singer-songwriter. Introducing new challenges and hitting new territories in the songwriting phase, this album not only promises to be her most epic and groundbreaking project yet, but is a monumental soundscape inspired by fantasy, history and personal journey.

LEAH’s sixth album The Glory and the Fallen drops February 16th. This much-anticipated, crowdfunded new release features a who’s who of renowned musicians with appearances from Mark Jansen (Epica, MaYaN), Timo Somers (Arjen Lucassen, Ex Delain), Sander Zoer (Delain), and was produced by Oliver Philipps (Everon, Phantasma). The amazing artwork was created by Giannis Nakos (Kamelot, Evergrey, Amaranthe.)

LEAH shares, “This is one of my biggest projects to date. Not only because there were more people involved, but also because of the scope of the music itself and the way I challenged myself in the songwriting process, and vocally. I think you’ll hear a continuation of my evolution as a songwriter and vocalist. This collection of songs is very much the classic LEAH sound but also explores some new territory that I think you’ll really enjoy. ”

In a gallant move, LEAH will also be treating fans to an instrumental album and folk versions of several songs from the album, providing a full experience for a wide range of musical tastes.
