AS STRANGE AS ANGELS Set For Reimagined EP

Dallas, Texas based AS STRANGE AS ANGELS is former murder FM front man Norman Matthew's passion project. On the heels of two Billboard Top 40 Active Rock singles (“Mirror Mirror” #23, June 2019 & “Miracle” #23, October 2019”), AS STRANGE AS ANGELS are set to release the Reimagined EP on 12/6/19. “Miracle” was BILLBOARD's “Most added” and “Most Increased Plays” in August 2019, on BILLBOARD Mainstream rock.

The Reimagined EP features acoustic versions of the entire Mirror Mirror EP, plus a bonus track, a cover of “Pictures of You” by THE CURE. Produced by Nick Page (THE DARKNESS, THE BRONX, FUEL).

After MURDER FM went on hiatus in 2016, Norman focused on raising his son after a divorce rocked his personal life. While juggling the work of running his music school, The Sound Foundation, and his fatherly duties, he found the turmoil that he was going through was beginning to come out in the music that he was writing. "For the first time, rather than speaking to the song, I let the song speak to me. I had never written lyrics that were a parallel of my life. Then I realized, I have a voice, and I need to be a voice for the voiceless."

The result of that reflection was the new 4 song EP Mirror Mirror, which Matthew has aptly dubbed "heart rock": From the heart, for the heart, by the heart. Say what you feel, and feel what you say. The title track was co-written and produced by former RA front man Sahaj Ticotin (STARSET, SEVENDUST, STITCHED UP HEART). The other 3 tracks - "Love and Death” (which features CJ Pierce Of DROWNING POOL on guitar), “Days Go Bye”, and “Right Beside You” were produced by Norman and Mick Kenney (MOTIONLESS IN WHITE). The recording features a heavy and melodic sound that is instantly familiar and yet unique - and is unlike most of the other music that is currently out in the Rock world. AS STRANGE AS ANGELS has previously released a single "Waves" in 2017.

Throughout his career Norman Matthew has shared the stage with rock luminaries ROB ZOMBIE, KORN, DEFTONES, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, THE PRETTY RECKLESS, and GEMINI SYNDROME. He has also appeared on the Vans Warped Tour.

Says Norman: “AS STRANGE AS ANGELS is a story with many chapters - each chapter needed to be given its own soundtrack. Whatever felt right, I ran with…. I didn’t care about genre and labels. I just needed a vessel to call my own as a mechanism to communicate what I was thinking and feeling. I’m so thankful for all the amazing people who have helped me bring this release to life. Those who picked me up along the way, never gave up and never stopped believing in me. Plenty of people let go at a time when I needed them the most. But I channeled that and let it fuel me. I took a step back and learned how to live life again. AS STRANGE AS ANGELS is a testament to that - a gift in many ways. I owe much of myself to all those that kept my blood flowing and my heart going - and I owe all of myself to my son.”
