Pushing closer and closer towards the release of their highly anticipated full-length Polar Similar, metalcore vets Norma Jean have just dropped their third new single “Forever Hurtling Towards Andromeda” which features guest vocals from Sean Ingram of Coalesce.
“This song deals with music being a cathartic medicine for us,” explains frontman Cory Brandan. “Growing up in poor neighborhoods, some rough situations and just seeing life through that glass – music is what we turned to. There was nothing that could ever sway us from it. As musicians, it was never about ‘making it’ to us. We are always where we want to be.”
Brandan continued to add, “Because the song is about our love of music and what it’s gotten us through, we wanted to bring in one of our favorite musicians to write something for it. Sean [Ingram of Coalesce] is a good friend and easily one of our favorite lyricists / vocalists in the world. Sean lives in Kansas where our producer Josh is from so it worked out perfectly getting him on the track. We had been talking for years and years about collaborating, this song came out and felt like a perfect fit. It seems to conjure a little bit of the Coalesce spirit as well.”
To check out the new track and most likely bang your head into yet another neck injury caused by the band’s previous two tracks “1,000,000 Watts” and “Synthetic Sun,” see below. Afterwards, pre-orders for Polar Similar can be found here.
