Normandie was founded in September 2013 by the singers Philip Strand and Johan Lindström, the two guitarists Joel Felix and Håkan Almbladh, as well as the basist Stefan Timmerholm and drummer Jesper Malmberg. Just a few days after the band became official, the EP named after the band was released on September 16th with four titles. The band toured around Scandinavia and played support for bands like Memphis May Fire , Heart In Hand and Betraying The Martyrs. After a while, Joel Felix decided to leave the band and was replaced by John-Filip Löfgren, who was an old band member of Jesper Malmberg old band Atmosfear. The band made its first Europe tour in February 2015 with the band All Faces Down, along with a tour in March 2015 with the band Imminence. Shortly after these tours Timmerholm and unclean vocalist Lindström decided to leave the band.
After Lindström left the band, Normandie decided to write music without unclean vocals. John-Filip Löfgren, who has previously played the guitar, started playing bass in the band.
Normandie self-released their debut album Inguz on March 4th, 2016. Inguz, a Viking rune, symbolized the band's new direction after the departure of their screamer co-vocalist. The US independent record label inVogue Records  signed the group and put the album out March 11th the same year on the North American market. In July 2016, the group toured through several European countries and played at several music festivals, including Bochum Total, Rock den See, and Trebur Open Air. Bassist John Löfgren made his last appearance at Rock The North, Germany, 2016.
