Mourn's third full-length, Sorpresa Familia, arrives at the tail end of a professional rough patch for the Catalonian indie quartet. A year before the release of 2016's stark Ha, Ha, He., the band went public with allegations of mismanagement on the part of their Spanish label, Sones, which Mourn accused of non-payment of income and holding the released album "hostage." Since then, both parties have parted ways. Sorpresa Familia (which translates to "Surprise Family" in Spanish) is the resulting chronicle of the group's frustration and eventual resolution.
