Commented frontman Cory Brandan: "We are currently on tour and took some time to fly out for a taping of 'Headbanger's Ball' to premier our new video for the song "Blueprints for Future Homes"."

When asked about the new clip, Cory said, "We are so excited about this video! It is seriously the best video we've ever done... I turn into a wolf in this video for a second and my head turns into a TV too. There's lots of animation and we're on top of a spinning building. [It was] directed by Popcore, who also directed our last video 'Liarsenic'. 'Blueprints…' is a very meaningful song to us. I can't wait for our fans to see it."

Norma Jean is currently headlining the Radio Rebellion Tour with Between The Buried And Me, Fear Before The March Of Flames and Misery Signals.

Norma Jean & More Confirmed For Radio Rebellion Tour
July 27, 2006
Norma Jean, Between The Buried And Me, Fear Before The March Of Flames, Misery Signals, The Fully Down and The Confession have been confirmed for the first-ever Radio Rebellion Tour 2006, which is set to kick off October 6 in Nashville.

Showcasing cutting-edge artists who've built a massive grassroots fanbase without the help of commercial radio, the Radio Rebellion Tour signifies the shift in how today's youth discovers and identifies new music and lifestyle trends through the media and the Internet. The inaugural eight-week trek will visit 45 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada between October 6 and December 2. Stay tuned for the fall 2006 itinerary to be announced soon.

Tickets will first be available via the tour's Internet pre-sale beginning nationwide on August 15 at 9:00 a.m. PST via www.musictoday.com. In addition, the Radio Rebellion Tour CD sampler will be distributed at Hot Topic stores nationwide as well as on the remaining Vans Warped Tour '06 dates.

"The idea behind Radio Rebellion is simple. We created a tour that showcases artists who've achieved some solid commercial success without the traditional drivers of commercial radio," says Graham Day, founder of Smartpunk.com and tour partner/sponsor. "Some of the Radio Rebellion artists have now sold a few hundred thousand records without having a single spin on commercial radio. We've witnessed first-hand the power of this new breed of artist as well as their tight connection with their very active fan-base and now we're offering these bands that fans want to see in an intimate and ideal environment.”

Hailing from Atlanta, Norma Jean have established themselves as one of the most adventurous young bands in metal today with their 2002 Solid State Records debut, 'Bless The Martyr And Kiss The Child'. 2005's follow-up album 'O' God The Aftermath' took the quintet to the next level, earning critical acclaim and selling over 100,000 copies on the indie Solid State Records. Currently performing all summer long on Ozzfest's second stage, the band is gearing up for the release of their new album 'Redeemer' — produced by industry icon Ross Robinson (At The Drive In, Slipknot, Deftones, From First To Last) — due out September 12.

"The Radio Rebellion Tour is representing a small portion of bands who are doing something different in the music industry as a whole without having a lot or any radio play at all," says Norma Jean lead vocalist Cory Brandon. "The truth is, I think radio should conform to what bands like us are doing, instead of us conforming to what they're currently playing just to get on the radio. It doesn't and shouldn't work like that in music. We're making headway without their support and we're not at all against the idea of heavier bands having radio play, but this doesn't and won't change what we are doing artistically whatsoever."

Fear Before The March Of Flames has forged its own path regardless of the current state of music. Formed in July 2002, four young teens from Aurora, CO set out to create a unique and relevant sonic experience. Drawing inspiration from the intricacies of Converge, the varied time signatures of Botch and the temperament of The Blood Brothers, they produced a distinctive combination of hardcore, metal and indie rock thatwas eclectic, fresh and frenetic.Borrowing a line from their local newspaper during the wild brushfires that swept through their state, the boys started practicing in their parents’ basement under the name Fear Before The March Of Flames. Not long after they began playing locally and sought opening slots on a diverse range of bills. Demonstrating the whole is greater than the sum of its parts Fear Before The March Of Flames formed an impressive synergy that many bands struggled for years to create. David Marion’s earth-crushing screams are complimented by Adam Fisher’s back-up vocals; Michael Madruga’s thick bass is the perfect balance to Fisher’s swirling guitars and heavy melodies while Brandon Proff’s drumming drives the aural assault onward.Those elements caught the attention of Portland-based Rise Records who released the band’s debut album, Odd How People Shake. Produced by Kris Crummett in a fast-paced two-week recording marathon the result Shake was raw but focused; showing that hardcore could be intense and catchy at the same time. Fear Before wasted no time and hit the road non-stop, playing shows with Anatomy of A Ghost, Between The Buried And Me and Bear Vs Shark. Relying almost entirely on word of mouth, they built a strong following with their quirky antics and relentless work ethic. Eventually Fear Before completed several west and east coast tours, had shared the stage with The Blood Brothers, Vaux and The Hope Conspiracy and made an appearance at last year’s Furnace Fest. The band was soon courted by a variety of labels, both indie and major, but in December 2003 the band decided to sign to Equal Vision Records because of their faith in the music and renowned honesty in the industry. At the tender ages of 19 and 20, Fear Before The March Of Flames has accomplished so much while holding on to their values and continually pushing themselves musically. It is rare indeed to discover a group of people so committed to their craft and so willing to push the boundaries of music. Equal Vision re-released the band’s debut on Rise Records this past spring in time for support tours with Eighteen Visions and Underoath. In early summer the Colorado quartet entered Q Division Studios with producer Matt Ellard (Converge, Between The Buried And Me, Motorhead) to record their sophomore effort. Entitled Art Damage, the album merges elements from the band’s previous effort with a more conscious Damage approach to songwriting and dynamics. The product is an abrasive sonic work teeming with passionate imagery and fierce execution.
