Norma Jean to Record This Winter

Posted by - 05:50 AM on 06/07/12
Norma Jean have pushed back the recording of their new album until this winter. They are also working on a DVD.
BlogBack in August of 2011 we announced that we were beginning to write a new record. We had originally planned to record in January 2012, but as Jan grew closer we decided to push the recording back to July 2012. We had way more ideas than we expected and wanted to make sure we did everything we wanted. To put it simply.

After that, we moved recording to July. When March rolled around we started to get Summer offers for shows and tours, and of course we choose playing over anything. Including playing this years final Cornerstone Festival, and Lifest. So we decided to push back our recording again.

We set our sights for recording in Sept. but since recording that late in the year would bring an early 2013 at the earliest, we have decided to take a tour in Sept/Oct (To be announced) and record THIS FALL/WINTER. Yes. We are definitely recording this Winter. Stop asking us to play shows, because we have a hard time saying no.

Other than that, we are VERY excited for this record. It will not disappoint and we have some interesting collaborations coming with it. It WILL be heavy and it will be something new.

In the meantime. Listen to MERIDIONAL. Did you know it has two B-sides? (Distance to Planets & Kill More Presidents) ALSO, did you know that if you stack Occidental, Oriental and Septentrional that is actually one song? Just line up the clicks at the beginning in Garageband or something. Have fun.

We are also working on a DVD. The DVD will tell the story of Norma Jean and have lots of behind the scenes footage and interviews. Past and present members.

Check out our shows coming up in the USA and Europe/Russia and come hang at a show. You may hear a new song…

They've gotten consistently better (with the exception of their first album, which was excellent), and I'm very excited for this. Gonna try those layers sometime. Cool idea, although I should have figured out it, haha.
