Hundred Suns is a new project from members of Norma Jean, Every Time I Die and Dead and Divine. Cory Brandan, vocalist for Norma Jean, began laying vocals over demos Dead and Divine’s ex-guitarist Chris LeMasters had sent to ETID drummer Ryan Leger in 2013. The trio is now prepped to drop their debut album in April, but has recently released a teaser for their new song, “Bedburner,” and was premiered by AltPress. Speaking to AP, Brandan said of the project:

“We’ve been writing our butts off. I think the further we get into the project, the more we push ourselves and encourage each other to be better.”

This is the second snippet released by the band. The first, “Fractional,” was released in and you can listen to it below.
