Norma Jean Explosions 2009 U.S. Tour Dates

Norma Jean will headline the “Explosions 2009” U.S. tour kicking off late November and running through late December, the band’s first headlining trek since the Fall of last year. Joining the post-hardcore heavy rockers will be Horse The Band, The Chariot and Arsonists Get All The Girls.

“We’ve always loved heavy music with no loyalty to any genre, style, approach or ‘fashion’ and this tour is just a taste of that non-allegiance,” says Norma Jean frontman Cory Brandan. “Arsonists are an insane band from Santa Cruz. 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. Horse The Band is such a different sounding band. You can tell they really love what they do and have fun doing it. That’s something we love about any band.”

Norma Jean will be touring in support of their most recent album, ‘The Anti Mother’. Dates for the Explosions 2009 tour featuring Norma Jean, Horse The Band, The Chariot and Arsonists Get All The Girls are as follows:
