Norma Jean to Release New Album in June

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (03/13/13)
Norma Jean have completed tracking their new album. The effort will be released in June via Razor & Tie Records.
We had a lot of fun writing this record. We moved our space to a secluded area and wrote off and on for about two years. We really pushed ourselves to do something really different while expanding on what we've done in the past. We also slapped some old school classic Norma Jean nastiness on it. We really struggled between wanting to have the fastest songs we've ever written to having the most groove driven songs, so the record is about half and half. We originally thought we would have been in and out of the studio by February 2012. We set the bar really high and once that time came around we discovered that the record wasn't ready. We felt it was best to push it back and make sure we didn't put out something that we were going to be less satisfied with. We experimented with strings, piano, organ, percussion and tons of live tracks that all will be present on this record.

Groove > speed always, IMO. Should be a great record though.

Sounds like the perfect record. Let's see how it turns out. I'm more into their "catchier" side though.

One thing we can agree on is that The Anti-Mother was their weakest album.
