Norma Jean Announce US Headlining Tour

Norma Jean have announced a full headlining US tour throughout starting at the end of February and running through March in support of their latest release, ‘Meridional’ (review here). Direct support will come from Of Legends and Impending Doom. Century Media punk/hardcore band Stick To Your Guns will join the tour a week in. Check out the tour dates after the jump.

“We will be playing a lot of songs that we haven’t played in a long time and some that have never been played at all, old and new. It will be one of the most eclectic sets we’ve ever played for sure,” said vocalist Cory Brandan. “I think of any headlining tour we’ve done to this point, this is the show to come to if you are a true Norma Jean fan. Doesn’t matter what record is your favorite, we’ll be playing something from it. We’re very excited and are working really hard to make sure it’s going to be excellent.”

But all that doesn’t matter when compared to this tour poster:
