Normandie go “Ghost” with new single and video

If you’ve been following us for a while, you know we really like Sweden’s alt-rockers Normandie. Having underwent a stunning transformation in sound on their debut album Inguz (2016), the band is back with a new single, “Ghost”, and a new video for the track as well.

Gaining a bunch of attention for supporting Yellowcard in the EU last year, they’re going absolutely bonkers right now.

Silverstein releases new single, “Ghost”

They’ve been on a seemingly neverending schedule of “new album, tour, recycle, repeat” every 2 years since 2003, and without a single bad album in that timespan.

With that said, 2017 is just around the corner – which means another Silverstein album, more tours (would it surprise you if they were playing Warped yet again?), and a new single in the form of “Ghost”. You can check out the single below – the band is also currently on tour with Memphis May Fire, The Devil Wears Prada, and Like Moths to Flames.
