Solid State Records, the former label home of progressive christian metalcore act Norma Jean, has announced details regarding the forthcoming Norma Jean 3CD boxset. The set, titled "Birds And Microscopes And Bottles Of Elixirs And Raw Steak And A Bunch Of Songs," features the band's three Solid State released albums "Bless The Martyr And Kiss The Child," "O God, The Aftermath" and "Redeemer" into a single release.
Norma Jean frontman Cory Brandan provided the following statement, seemingly in disapproval of the boxset, on twitter by saying: "Don’t buy any cd combo “deals”. Buy a new record instead. FSS!" He then followed up his statement with: "I wasn’t complaining about the 3CD thing btw. It’s perfectly normal for me/us to want fans to buy a new record that JUST freakin came out…And it’s dumb to release something that would possibly counter those sales. It’s isn’t rocket science. #duhhhhhhh!"
