Pitfalls is the sixth studio album by Norwegian progressive music band Leprous, released on 25 October 2019 via Inside Out Music and preceded by the singles "Below", "Alleviate", and "Distant Bells". It was recorded over six months at Ghostward Studios and seen as a musical departure for the group. A cellist, violinist, and classical choir were recruited for the production. Most of the songs were written and composed by Leprous vocalist Einar Solberg. A majority of critics approved of the album, bestowing particular esteem on the singing as well as songs "Below", "Observe the Train", "At the Bottom", and "The Sky Is Red". Solberg's creative control was for some a point of contention. Pitfalls charted higher than predecessor Malina in the Wallonia region of Belgium, Finland, France, the UK, and on Top Heatseekers in the US. Leprous promoted it with a European headlining tour.
