After a few months of teasing new music, longtime metalcore heavyweights Norma Jean have finally (and we mean finally!) released news regarding their upcoming record.
Titled as Polar Similar, the band’s seventh full-length record will hit stores September 9 via their old stomping grounds Solid State Records.
To celebrate the new album announcement, the scene veterans debuted a dark and twisted new single titled “1,000,000 Watts.” Progressing forward with their vibe-laden sound as heard in their previous release Wrongdoers, the new single also hits you square in the mouth a la 2006′s Redeemer.
“We worked really hard to match the emotion of these songs to the content behind them and tried to conjure a specific feeling with each track,” frontman Cory Brandan explained to NPR who premiered the track. “The record as a whole deals with some dark themes, so this is an example of what naturally came out of our collaboration.”
Brandan continued to add, “I think ‘1,000,000 Watts’ is a great representation of some of the bold risks we took throughout the album. It’s amazing what you will create when you put yourself in the mindset of, 'I have nothing to lose.’”
To hear the new single and most likely play it 8-10 times in a row, be sure to look below. Afterwards, pre-orders for Polar Similar can be found here.
