Norma Jean Returning To New Zealand In May

Norma Jean Returning To New Zealand In May

C.C. / Tuesday 10th March, 2020 10:00AM

Atlanta-bred metalcore pioneers Norma Jean make their long awaited return to Aotearoa this coming May, unleashing their explosive riffage at Pōneke's Valhalla and Tāmaki Makaurau's Neck of the Woods. Rising from the ashes of earlier project Luti-Kriss, Norma Jean have blazed their own hugely influential and uncompromisingly intense trail since releasing under that name in 2002. Seasoned live veterans, they've played Ozzfest and the Warped Tour and toured with the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Architects, and now have eight studio albums and a flurry of furious videos under their belts following last year's release of All Hail. Don't miss your chance to experience Norma Jean this May for their first NZ headline events since 2013...

Press release:

Buckle up, US metalcore mainstays Norma Jean are bringing the heaviness to New Zealand shores this May for their long awaited return off the back of their highly reviewed album All Hail.

Norma Jean are an American metalcore band, hailing from the Atlanta suburb of Douglasville, Georgia. They formed the band in 1997.

Taking their moniker from the real name of Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, Norma Jean have positioned themselves, over the course of nearly two decades and six albums to date, as one of the most influential and important bands currently playing metalcore.

Theyve flirted with mainstream recognition over the years, being nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Recording Package for sophomore LP O God, the Aftermath in 2005. But for the most part, their biggest achievement has been carving out a revered status within the metal community as a whole, touring as part of Ozzfest and the Warped Tour. Theyve supported the likes of Architects and The Dillinger Escape Plan, too, as well as being handpicked by Rob Zombie to play the side stage at his Mayhem Festival back in 2010.
