Barcelona band MOURN have announced details of their new album.
The band’s third LP, it’ll be released on 15th June, and features new single ‘Barcelona City Tour’, a video for which has been shared alongside the news.
“We like to understand records as personal diaries,” explain the band in a press release. “Everything you live builds you as a person, so we think it builds your art as well. We use songs as a way to express ourselves and to organize our ideas and thoughts. We use them to
understand our own feelings and to grow emotionally. This album sums up everything we’ve lived during the past two years, it wasn’t easy to open up, but we did it anyway without fear. Every frustration, disappointment, delusion, anger… We got everything out, we liberated ourselves and now we’re ready for everything that comes up. The lyrics are very literal; they are our raw experiences - without makeup. We show our most animal side, reduced to our most intense and visceral emotions. Of all we’ve lived, we keep the experiences, what was learned, all the mistakes and successes. Now we know life is SORPRESA (surprise), but above all it is FAMILIA (family).”
The track listing for ‘Sorpresa Familia’ is:
Barcelona City Tour
Fun At The Geysers
Thank You For Coming Over
