The mighty Norma Jean are returning to our shores for the first time in over 5 years bringing along with them Boston’s finest hardcore purveyors Vanna and Newcastle’s very own Safe Hands.
Norma Jean have continuously pushed the boundaries of heavy music releasing a slew of seminal albums including "O God, The Aftermath" and "The Anti Mother", cementing themselves at the forefront of the metal world. This trend continued with the release of their fifth full length "Meridional", with AbsolutePunk calling it their "magnum opus, that will be matched by very few within the genre."
Renowned across the globe for their chaotic and pummeling live shows Norma Jean incites rabid fanfare leaving those in attendance in awe and admiration of their performances. Norma Jean are currently holed up in the studio with producer Joshua Barber working on their much anticipated as yet untitled sixth full length due out in 2013. Australian fans will be some of the first in the world to hear new material.
Boston heavyweights Vanna will unleash their ferocious live show on Australian audiences for the first time this May. Their latest full length "And They Came Baring Bones" takes the listener on an unpredictable path filled with dark and angry emotions, but at the end you realize there is a light of self-discovery.
Fresh out of the studio having completed their new as yet untitled album, which is due out in March 2013 via Artery Recordings, Vanna will showcase new material giving Australian fans the first taste.
Since releasing their debut EP "Oh The Humanity" in February 2011 through Pee Records, Safe Hands have been making it their business to take to and ravage as many venues/stages/warehouses/floors/lounge rooms across Australia.
Early bird pre sales will be available on Friday 25th January at 9am from www.taperjeanmusic.com with general tickets on sale Wednesday 30th January at 9am from usual outlets.
