The official video for “Bastardizer,” the second single off Meridional, debuts today on Alternative Press. The video was directed by Brooks Jones and shot at our rehearsal space in Atlanta. Watch here:
From Cory: We had a lot of fun shooting this video. It’s really just us in our practice space, where we have written most of our records. No special effects, just us jamming. It’s one of our favorite songs from the new record, so it was a perfect choice for the next video.
Get a behind the scenes look at the making of the new video for “Bastardizer,” our second single from Meridional. Cory shot this footage while filming the video at our rehearsal space in Atlanta.
The official music video was directed by Brooks Jones and will premiere on AltPress.com on Monday, May 2nd.

Hey Norma Jean Fans!
If you haven’t already heard, we’ll be hitting the road soon for EXPLOSIONS II. We definitely want to see you guys at these shows as we haven’t done a headlining tour in forever it seems. We’ll be playing a lot of songs we haven’t played in forever or at all. Old and new.
As we hit each city, we’re looking for our dedicated fans to get out there and help us promote. We’re talking real DIY-style help. Like it used to be when we were just starting out and all got into music. You can get an exclusive tour flyer to download and print here: http://bit.ly/normajeanflyer You could hang it in your favorite record stores, clothing stores, restaurants, grocery stores, bars, and malls posting and handing out these flyers. Feel free to include the venue information or other bands playing.
Take a picture and send it to us via twitter or facebook (tag) and we’ll re-post it.
We’re working hard to give you guys great music and stellar shows, and we really can’t wait for you to see what we’ve got in store for EXPLOSIONS II. Help us out and we’ll make it worth your while.
See y’all out on the road!! Can’t wait!
Norma Jean fans! We wanted you to be the first to know about our upcoming “Explosions II” tour. Norma Jean will headline, supported by Stick To Your Guns, Impending Doom, and Of Legends. This is our first real headlining tour in over a year so don’t miss it! 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. 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!
