NORMA JEAN have dropped the video for “1994.” It’s comprised of footage spanning the entirety of their career. Watch it above and see some wild clips on our Instagram, Facebook and TikTok.
The song lives on their ninth album Deathrattle Sing For Me, out now via Solid State Records.
“If you film your band for 20+ years and never do anything with it, you end up with a box full of VHS and hi-8 tapes like what happened to me,” says singer Cory Brandan. “Instead of making that expensive documentary you were always hoping to make, just make a three- minute music video instead.”

Norma Jean — Cory Brandan [vocals], Grayson Stewart [lead guitar], Clay Crenshaw [guitar/bass], Matt Marquez [drums], and Michael Palmquist [guitar/bass] — plunge into unparalleled emotional depths on the new album.
The band unearthed a searing signature style on O’ God, the Aftermath in 2005.
They struck up a creative partnership with iconic producer Ross Robinson on the seminal Redeemer  and The Anti Mother . The latter notably boasted appearances by Chino Moreno of Deftones and Page Hamilton of Helmet.
Following the acclaimed Meridional , Wrongdoers  represented a critical high watermark with a 9-out-of-10 score from Rock Sound and 9-out-of-10 score from Outburn. On the heels of Polar Similar , they reached another level on All Hail .
In a perfect 5-star review, New Noise Magazine raved, “All Hail is yet another momentous accomplishment on their part,” while Kerrang! attested, “All Hail’s ambition and execution is worthy of worship.” Along the way, they toured with everyone from Rob Zombie and Korn to Mastodon, Lamb of God, and more.
During 2021, they recorded what would become Deathrattle Sing For Me with longtime collaborator Jeremy SH Griffith. They nodded to inspirations as diverse as Alice In Chains’ Dirt, The Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream, and the sample-and-riff onslaught of White Zombie’s La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume 1.
