Norma Jean push back new album recording, new DVD in the works featuring past and present members
have announced on their official website that the recording of their brand new album has been pushed back to this winter after originally planning to enter the studio in January. The band have also revealed that a new DVD is in the works which will tell the story of Norma Jean and it will include their former members. The full update can be read below.
ack 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. Including playing this years final Cornerstone Festival, and Lifest. (Check out the Tour Page) So we decided to push back our recording again, and we continued to write.
We set our sights for recording in Sept, but since recording that late in the year wouldn’t allow enough time for a proper 2012 release, we have decided to take a tour in Sept/Oct (To be announced) and record the new 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 will continue to write and build something we think is going to be great. We are VERY excited for this record. It will not disappoint and will have some interesting collaborations coming with it. It WILL be heavy and it will be something new. We are pouring everything into it.
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 included.
Check out the shows and fests coming up in the USA and Europe/Russia and come hang at a show. You may hear a new song…
