Catalan band MOURN share their new EP Over the Wall on Captured Tracks. The release is a collection of 4 covers and 1 unreleased track from their sophomore album, Ha, Ha, He! (2016). Wednesday, at the Knitting Factory, they played their first stateside show since the release of their breakout debut in 2014 – a delay that was brought on by legal issues with their Spanish label. This group of wunderkinds has seen more misfortune at the hands of the music industry in just a couple years than many groups see in an entire career. Over the Wall is available to stream on Spotify and for purchase on iTunes.
(September 8th – Captured Tracks)
2. Over the Wall (by Echo & The Bunnymen)
3. The Fire (by The Sound)
4. Color Me Impressed (by The Replacements)
5. Whatever (by Husker Dü)
Though MOURN have continued their speedy ascent from local curiosity into an international band on the rise, there have been some unfortunate setbacks for the young band. A legal dispute with their previous Spanish label forbade them from touring, forcing them to remain absent or turn away all opportunities brought forth by the 2016 release of their fantastic 2nd LP. Now with their legal troubles finally behind them, MOURN return to the United States for a string of dates across the country with more energy than ever, ready to show the world what we’ve all been denied.
To mark their triumphant return, Captured Tracks is proud to release the digital/cassette EP Over The Wall. Featuring an unreleased track and four covers by various heroes and influences that belie the band member’s ages (The Replacements, Husker Du, The Sound, and Echo & The Bunnymen), Over The Wall is yet another raging set of songs that prove that MOURN cannot be held back and are not to be missed on this rare American tour. MOURN are finally free!
