Barcelona band MOURN have announced their brand new album Sorpresa Familia as well as sharing a new track to whet our appetite titled ‘Barcelona City Tour’, which can be found below the band’s statement released alongside the news.
The new album will be out on June 15th and based on their previous efforts and new track ‘Barcelona City Tour’ we are expecting something truly brilliant. Speaking of the new album, the band’s thrid full-length they said “We like to understand records as personal diaries”.
“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).”
