Atlanta, Georgia's Norma Jean recently completed tracking their new album which will be released this coming June on Razor & Tie. The album was recorded at Covenant Recording Studios in Kansas City with producer Josh Barber and is being mixed by Jeremy Griffith. The new studio album will be the band's sixth full length album and second release with Razor & Tie.
"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," explains Norma Jean lead vocalist Cory Brandan.
