The band confirm 2021 headline dates

Swedish melodic rockers Normandie started out as a six-piece in 2013, including founding members Philip Strand on vocals and Håkan Almbladh on guitar. The band released their self-titled debut EP shortly after forming, subsequently parting ways with co-vocalist Johan Lindström and second guitarist Joel Felix, and settling on a more streamlined sound.

The quartet unveiled their debut full-length Inguz in 2016, having been forced to rewrite much of the record due to the change in members. A high profile tour with pop-punk veterans Yellowcard followed, accompanied by further changes to the line-up that eventually welcomed touring drummer Anton Franzon and bassist Lucas Englund into the fold.

Shaking their metalcore roots but retaining their heavy core, Normandie set out on tour with the likes of Hands Like Houses to further grow their fanbase. They made their debut appearance at Download Festival in 2017 and at Reading and Leeds Festival in 2018, gearing up for the release of their sophomore album White Flag in October of that year. The release arrived through Easy Life Records, home to alternative scene heavyweights Lower Than Atlantis, Arcane Roots and Waterparks. Speaking of the record, Strand celebrated the time and energy the band were able to spend on their sound as opposed to the comparably rushed Inguz.

With White Flag surpassing three million streams in just a month, Normandie secured support by the likes of BBC Radio 1's Rock Show, and national and international press. Touring the UK with Dream State in 2019, the band announced the departure of Englund who opted to focus on his photography career.

Now comprising Stand, Almbladh and Franzon, the trio released their Jericho single in 2020, reported as the lead single from their third studio album. The band also confirmed headline dates for March 2021.
