Lzzy Hale Says Halestorm Are “At The Tail End” Of Making Their New Album

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation Virtual Invasion,” Lzzy Hale offered an update on the new Halestorm album. According to her, the band are “at the tail end of it.”

Hale said the following [via Blabbermouth]:

“It’s going great. We’re actually kind of in the eleventh hour. Everything is starting to really congeal and just reveal itself. So we’re at the tail end of it. We already have a first single picked; that just happened. So you’re definitely going to be hearing music sooner than later. As far as the release date of the record, I don’t have that yet.”

She also discussed creating music during the coronavirus pandemic:

“I think a lot of us [artists] were questioning, over the past year and change, about why am I still doing this? Who am I without touring? Who am I without all of the normal things that make my life normal? And we took, or at least I — I can’t speak for the guys — but I took writing when there was no real schedules, ’cause we didn’t know what was gonna open up, I took to writing to kind of have that be my escape, have that be my stage. So what you’re going to hear on this record is a lot of that, a lot of me placing myself in this spot, in this communion of people that I feel most comfortable, and just surrounded by everyone that loves the same music that I do.”

Hale also added the following about working with producer Nick Raskulinecz again:

“He’s so passionate and he’s just a fan of music. And I know that sounds surprising — oh, yeah, a music producer that isn’t a fan of music. There are a lot of those; there are a lot of those types of producers that are not fans of your music, let alone really listening to your genre. So it’s just great to be working with a producer that just loves the same kind of music and knows what we can do.

We’ve written so much material for this record, and a lot of it we end up throwing out and then rewriting and whatever. What people don’t understand is you have to be willing to work so hard just to throw it all away and do it again and make sure it’s right, ’cause it has to be right. ‘Cause you don’t wanna look back and be, like, ‘Oh, I should have said something about that.'”

Amy Lee commented:

“Words can’t express how excited we are to go back on tour with our friends and rock out again. We’ve been building this new music in isolation for over a year and dreaming of what it will be like to finally play it live, and to experience it together with our fans for the first time. We can’t wait to see you there!”

Lzzy added:

“We have all been mourning the loss of live music, and patiently waiting, looking toward an uncertain future. Finally the future looks bright and I can’t think of a better way to break the silence than with our dear friends in Evanescence. I can only imagine how it will feel to step on stage again night after night, and reconnect with all of the fans whom I’ve missed so much. Get ready for intense emotions, loud performances, and a newly exhilarated energy unlike any tour we’ve experienced in the past. Looking forward to seeing you all!”

Lzzy Hale Says Halestorm’s New Album Will “Kind Of Be Like Almost A Musical Documentary Of What We’ve Gone Through This Past Year”

During a recent appearance on 95.5 KLOS’ “New And Approved With Matt Pinfield,” Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale talked a bit about the band’s upcoming album. According to her, the effort will “kind of be like almost a musical documentary of what we’ve gone through this past year.”

Hale said the following about the writing sessions for the record:

“It’s been a roller-coaster ride, because we were writing for the record and actually getting together right here in my home studio every single day before the [coronavirus-related] lockdown happened, which I think tomorrow marks a year to the day when all that craziness started. So we were getting together and we were writing songs, and then, slowly but surely, it just felt like every single day we were getting more bad news, and we just basically made a decision, like, ‘Okay, guys, until this blows over ‘ — [laughs] which we thought it was going to blow over — ‘let’s everybody just stay at home.’ So the songwriting process kind of became more or less this relay sport, where it would start with myself or myself and my guitar player [Joe Hottinger], and then we would pass it off to Josh [Smith, bass], the bass player, and [eventually] send it to Arejay [Hale, drums]. And so we just ended up building up this kind of Dropbox of ideas. And then we started including our producer, Nick Raskulinecz, in all of these ideas, and so we’d go back and forth with that. And then, finally, just a couple of weeks ago, we got asked to perform THE WHO’s ‘Long Live Rock’ for the documentary ‘Long Live Rock’. And so that was kind of our, ‘Okay, well, we have to get together and do this in a real studio. So everyone get tested, and everybody wear your mask the whole time.’ And it was kind of like shaking off the dust — it was getting the band back together again. So it was kind of cool to initially break through with THE WHO song and then we started in on our actual material.”

She also added the following about lyrical themes:

“I’m just now seeing this arc, because there were the songs that we were writing just kind of coming off the road, where it’s very confident and very live and energy. And then it kind of starts to get — still keeping the energy up, but then subject matter starts to get a little crazier and maybe a little darker. And then it’s kind of starting to dip into some more hope now. So I feel like, in real time, this is going to kind of be like almost a musical documentary of what we’ve gone through, through this past year and change.”
