It looks like Halestorm are planning to release a 10th anniversary edition of their self-titled debut album. During a recent interview with Ned from KFMW Rock 108, Joe Hottinger confirmed that the band are currently “putting together a special package” for the effort.
Hottinger said the following while reflecting on the group’s career:
“It’s a trip, man. It’s the ten-year anniversary of our first record and we’re putting together a special package for that first album right now. Lzzy [Hale] and I just went through all these demos we made from 2005 to 2008 when we were making that first record. I had forgotten all about them. It’s like hearing these songs for the first time again. They weren’t terrible. There’s a reason they didn’t make the first record. The thing was there; the magic was there, that we fight for even today. I kind of realized that we’re doing what we’ve always done. We’re lucky. I get to do what I love with the people I love and travel the world doing it. What more could you ask for in a life? That’s what we were doing back when we were playing bars around Pennsylvania. Just doing what we love with people we love. It was on a much smaller scale. But what a trip. I think we’re going around the world twice this year. We end in Australia and Japan again before the end of the year. It’s awesome. It’s tiring, but awesome.”
