BAND RELEASE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR SECOND SINGLE ‘FAILURES’ SERMON WILL BE IN STORES ON NOVEMBER 1ST
Icelandic wrecking crew, UNE MISÈRE, are set to unleash their full-length debut, SERMON, upon the world on November 1st, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Today, the band releases the official music video for their second single, ‘Failures’. The making of the video was a family affair, with guitarist Gunnar Ingi Jones handling the directing. A special thanks should be mentioned for Kex Hostel and all the kids who helped make the video. Watch ‘Failures’ here:
Jón Már Ásbjörnsson comments, “‘Failures’ is about my journey off of drugs. The realization, the sobering up, the withdrawals and the self loathing it brought with it. It’s a song of anger and of regret but as it breaks down, it becomes this release that one needs. It keeps me sober. The song goes out to the straight edge kids out there.”
Watch the official video for the first single ‘SERMON’:
SERMON track listing:
SIN & GUILT
OVERLOOKED // DISREGARDED
BURDENED // SUFFERING
SERMON was produced and mixed by Sky van Hoff (EMIGRATE, RAMMSTEIN, etc) with mastering completed by Svante Forsbäck. The album was engineered by Marco Bayatl, Sky Van Hoff and Marco Kollenz. The album artwork was created by Niklas Sundin (DARK TRANQUILLITY).
The product of a modern age; the sonic nature of UNE MISÈRE cannot be easily defined. With an inherently heavy nature, the band sits somewhere on a vast spectrum of blackened hardcore and aggressive metal.
