I’ve stated here before that Norma Jean is hands down the best in the metal/hardcore/loud genre currently. No one’s been more consistent while continuing to grow as a band.
Today the band announced that their new record, Wrongdoers, will hit stores in August 6th via Razor and Tie Records.
Norma Jean will release their new studio album,Wrongdoers on August 6th through Razor & Tie. 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. The album is the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2010 release, Meridional.

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 albumMeridional which Alternative Press called, “Norma Jean’s first true masterpiece.”.
