Norma Jean has a new album coming out Sept. 9 from Solid State Records called Polar Similar. Yesterday, they premiered a new song from that album, “Synthetic Sun,” via Revolver Magazine. The album will be the seventh full-length album for the band, their first after returning to the label with which they released their first four. They were previously signed to Razor and Tie Records.

All of the band’s previous releases, except for their debut Bless the Martyr, Kiss the Child, have reached at least number two on the Top Christian Albums chart. Their most recent release was Wrongdoers in 2013.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
