What do your parents listen to? Music of their youth, right? Think a handful of years into the future- look at the bands that you will be justifying to your children. Personally, I will have no qualms about my musical taste, or passing it on in the future. One such band that hits close to home is Norma Jean. They have been around since 1997, which was smack dab in the heart of middle school for all of us babies of the late 80s.
This metalcore band hailing from Douglasville, GA has seen its fair share of experience in the studio and on the road. Of the original lineup, only the two guitarists remain. There have been four studio albums from Norma Jean, of which the second album “O God the Aftermath” actually received a Grammy nomination.
Currently, Norma Jean is traveling for their WRONGDOERS Tour. So, if you are feeling nostalgic or if you are thinking- “Man, I always wanted to see them live and never got the chance”… then you are in luck. Take a look at these dates and find out when you can snag a chance to see the band live:

I have the privilege to live near Steger, IL and have the ability to catch the show on November 30th. I will be sitting down with the band to ask them a few questions on music, life and their fans. If you have any pressing questions you would like to ask the band, please submit them as a comment to this article and I will take them under advisement as I prepare my own questions.
If you absolutely cannot see them and still wish to show your support or love, you can follow the band on their Facebook page or by using Twitter and Instagram with @NORMAJEANBAND. Also, drop by normajeannoise.com to purchase advance tickets, mercy and other amenities of this influential band.
