Tonight History is being made. Major League Soccer has finally arrived to the city of Nashville TN! As some of you well know, every team has a tradition to start off the game. So our friends at @mls and our beautiful family at Gibson teamed up to make the team a guitar. Our Nashville tradition? 30 seconds of an original riff on this guitar! What better way to symbolize the very heart of music city?! And who gets to write and perform the first riff ever tonight? Me!! It’s truly such an honor to be chosen to not only represent myself as a woman and a musician but to represent the amazing Rock n Roll community here in Nashville. The whole thing goes down at 7 cst!

Halestorm Planning To Release Two New EPs

During a recent interview with Bionic Buzz at the She Rocks awards, Lzzy Hale revealed that Halestorm are planning to release two new EPs. On top of that, the band have also been writing and demoing new material for their next album.

Hale said the following when asked if the group are working on a new album:

“We’ve just been writing for it — we’re demoing and all that stuff. We have a couple of projects coming out during the year that we’ve been recording. I have a couple of collaborations that are gonna be trickled out; you guys are gonna find out about that probably in about a week or so. And we’ve got ShipRocked [cruise] coming up and a small run in April. But other than that, we’re hunkering down and getting some new tunes.”

She also added the following when asked if they are planning to release another covers EP:

“We do have two EPs coming out. Whether or not they are fully covers or whether they’re something even more ridiculous, I cannot say.”

“There’ll be more information on that coming up. It’s just getting mixed now, and it sounds awesome. It’s something we’ve never really done before. Everyone’s expecting a cover EP, but… We’re about to shake it up a little. Technically, it is a cover EP. [Laughs] You’ll find out. It’s cool.”

Lzzy Hale added:

“It’s nothing like what you think. We can’t really talk about it.”
