Day of Mourning is the fourth and final studio album by Canadian deathcore band Despised Icon. It was released September 22 through Century Media Records. The album is featured in four different editions, including; the standard, the United States exclusive Hot Topic edition, the Europe Exclusive LTD digipak edition, the iTunes edition and the Japanese edition.



Day of Mourning was recorded during early 2009 at Projecson Recording Studio and was produced by their former guitarist, Yannick, St-Amand and was mixed by Andreas Magnusson and mastered by Alan Douches.[1] The album marks the first Despised Icon release to feature guitarist Ben Landreville and bassist Max Lavelle in the band.

The song "MVP" was released as the album's first single on July 17, 2009. The title track was released as the album's second single and had a music video produced for it which was directed by Montreal hip hop video production company, Kartel Films. The song is also featured as downloadable content for Rock Band 2 via the Rock Band Network.[2]


The album reached #162 on the Billboard 200 and #6 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers, selling 3,000 copies its first week of release.[3]

Day of Mourning generally received praising reviews, the Ultimate Guitar Team staff members complimented the band's sound by stating, "While some metal bands thrive on speed to deliver a brutal assault on the senses, Despised Icon has taken a varied approach. It’s true that the double bass pedal seems possessed on the band’s 4th full-length studio album Day of Mourning, but the band is creative enough to restrain themselves when it comes to the core songwriting."[4]
