NORMA JEAN CLOSE OUT THE YEAR WITH “PIZZA RIOT 2011” US TOUR

BAND CURRENTLY WORKING ON FOLLOW UP TO 2010’s CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED “MERIDIONAL”

Touring Europe This Winter With The Chariot On “The Evil Tiger Vulture European Tour

Atlanta’s Norma Jean are hitting the road one last time this year with the headlining “Pizza Riot 2011” US Tour. The tour will kick off on November 29th in Savannah, GA and will make stops nationwide before concluding in Asheville, NC on December 18th (tour dates below). The December run will be the last time fans can see Norma Jean in the US for some time. The band will be hitting the studio to record their sixth full length album and taking off on a European tour with The Chariot in February 2012 with “The Evil Tiger Vulture European Tour” – the first time the bands will tour Europe and Russia together.

Norma Jean are currently writing material for the follow up to 2010’s critically acclaimed Meridional and will head into the studio with producer Jeremy Griffith in January 2012. “After making ‘Meridonal,’ we really didn’t know what we were going to do next. It’s hard to imagine that after coming out of so much work and thought being poured into something, but we’re starting to see this new record take shape and all I can say right now is it’s going to be nasty, “ said lead vocalist Cory Brandan. “If anything, ’Meridional’ ended up inspiring us to continue moving forward and doing what we love to do. We also moved our writing space out of Atlanta this time for a new atmosphere where I live in Arkansas. We isolated ourselves a lot more and spent a lot of time together. We’ll continue working and will be recording in January with Jeremy Griffith again. We’re really excited and are having a blast.”

Norma Jean released their fifth album, Meridional, to critical acclaim in July 2010. The five-piece metal band from Atlanta has previously released four records prior to Meridional, selling over 400,000 albums. The Grammy-nominated band is known for their aggressively artful sound which was once again delivered in their seethingly raw album, Meridional. Alternative Press called the album “Norma Jean’s first true masterpiece” and named it one of the Top 10 Essential Albums of 2010 along with naming Brandan Best Vocalist in their MVR’s (Most Valuable Rockers) of 2010.
