Go See This Fucking Band

NORMA JEAN, HORSE THE BAND, THE CHARIOT and ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS set out to distort the fuck out of a venue near you

by: Rob Pasbani


I don't know how I missed this before, but holy fuck – if you are a fan of noisy metal and hardcore and fun times, do I have a tour for you! NORMA JEAN is heading out on their first headlining tour in a year. They have handpicked a roster of openers that will surely (who you calling Shirley?) appease any Norma Jean fan which includes: HORSE THE BAND, THE CHARIOT and ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS.

Yes, I know what you're thinking…THE CHARIOT?! The band featuring Josh Scogin, former frontman of NORMA JEAN? Yes! And guess what, Norma Jean announced they will perform their seminal record Bless The Martyr and Kiss the Child in it's (almost) entirety (minus a 15 minute instrumental), which is pretty much my favorite record by them! And, if you followed the Atlanta natives you know that Josh Scogin sang on that record. And, you're probably asking yourself if he will join his previous band on stage. The band puts questions to rest and addresses the situation in a press release:

The Chariot are our good friends from our home state of Georgia. I'm really looking to hearing the songs from their new record live. We may even join each other on stage once in a while.

Oh hell yes! If you are into noisy music, and like to see a shit-ton of chaos on stage, this is the show for you! It has my personal seal of approval. Here are the scheduled tour dates:
