Icelandic wrecking crew, UNE MISÈRE, are proud to announce they are unleashing their full-length debut, SERMON, unto the world on November 1st, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band launch the second part of their multi-part documentary series entitled Iceland: Beauty in Misery, which chronicles the band's grim relationship with the 'picturesque' destination that has become a bucket-list location for the social media influencer elite. The band discusses the isolation of growing up in Iceland and how this separation influenced them to create the art they wished was present in their daily life.

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.

UNE MISÈRE just completed a successful run of shows with LAMB OF GOD, ARCH ENEMY, DECAPITATED, and ABORTED. Upcoming dates are as follows:

Nov 6-9 Iceland Airwaves, Reykjavík
Dec 19 Special Release Show, Reykjavík
* Stay tuned for more dates to be announced soon!
