Norma Jean are hyping fans up for their upcoming new record and continuing that tradition today, their dropping another new track.
The band’s latest song is called “Landslide Defeater” and is an upbeat banger featuring some melody, breakdowns and shredding.
The track marks the second single the band have released since announcing the new album.
“I don’t believe humans naturally live in a state of constant conflict,” says vocalist Cory Brandan about the song and video. “I think it’s perpetuated. Feel free to dive in further if you want. After that, it’s a heavy rock riff with tons of fuzz!”

Now they’re releasing “Landslide Defeater” and the track shows a slight shift in style for the band. Its main riff is a more upbeat punk riff mixed with their signature breakdowns, and later in the song they bring back some Meridional-era sounding melodic sections.
They’ve have always included some level of technicality in their songs, but towards the track’s ending, they bring in some interesting shred parts that sound like a new step for the band.
