Norma Jean toasts their new album release with a gallon of milk, or twenty. Watch the bands hilarious new music video for “If You Got It At Five, You Got it At Fifty” on Alternative Press HERE. The video was directed by former drummer Daniel Davison (August Burns Red, The Chariot, Manchester Orchestra).
Norma Jean also celebrates the release of their new studio album, Wrongdoers (Razor & Tie) – iTunes Store HERE (http://bit.ly/Wrongdoers). The album was recorded at Covenant Recording Studios in Kansas City with producer Josh Barber and was mixed by Jeremy Griffith. Wrongdoers is the band’s sixth full length album and their second Razor & Tie album to date. Norma Jean is currently touring on The Summer Slaughter Tour till the end of August (tour dates below).
The Atlanta based, Grammy-nominated act has sold over 416,000 combined units in the United States and are esteemed for their aggressively artful sound which has garnered critical praise around the world as evidenced by the overwhelmingly positive press that greeted the band’s previous R&T album Meridional and their latest release Wrongdoers.
“Since we already referred to Norma Jean’s previous album, Meridional, as their “First true masterpiece,” we have to call Wrongdoers their next masterpiece…. Wrongdoers might surpass its predecessor in heaviness, emotion, mood and pure adrenalin….Wrongdoers is the band standing tall fists in the air, screaming at the Heavens.”
– Alternative Press (4 ½ Stars)
“Wrongdoers is full if the breakdown-heavy and semi-chaotic brand of metalcore with which the group has made its name. …Wrong has rarely sounded so right.” – Revolver (3 ½ Stars)
“Norma Jean seem to have stepped it right the hell up with this new release and gone straight for the jugular.”
– Metal Injection
“The mighty Norma Jean is back with their sixth full-length release, Wrongdoers. .. This might very well turn out to be my favorite Norma Jean release. Period. There are no duds or fillers here at all. Every song stands up by itself…An absolutely outstanding effort from the group.” – Pure Grain Audio (9.5 Stars)
