Norma Jean has added drummer Chris Raines of Spitfire to their lineup. The band explained:

As you guys know, we have been in the process of finding a new drummer. So the past couple of months or so we have been playing shows, and writing songs with one of our good, long–time friends playing drums. It's been a great experience and we are so happy to officially welcome Chris Raines into the family. He's an awesome dude, and you have heard him play if you listen to the band Spitfire. And if you haven't heard them, you should check em out. They got some new songs up.

By the way, we have been working on new a new record. and it's been going so well. We couldn't be happier with how it's coming along.

Norma Jean is working on the follow up to Redeemer. Spitfire is gearing up for the release of Cult Fiction on March 25, 2008.
