Watch Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Perform Soundgarden’s “My Wave'” With Slider

Halestorm Share “Chemicals” Acoustic Performance

Halestorm have shared an acoustic in studio performance of their b-side track “Chemicals.” The original version of the song was previously released as a limited edition 7” on Record Store Day.

Lzzy Hale commented:

“Our song ‘Chemicals’ was written in homage to those we’ve lost and all of us struggling with mental illness.

In this song, I dip into the personal insanity that goes on inside your head. Because sometimes you feel like you are drowning in the whisperings of your own mind, like you are the only one at war with your impending darkness. But, really, we are all in this together. We are all battling one day at a time. We, the fighters… We are the majority. So I made the chorus an anthem, an epiphany that we are all the same, and most everyone you meet has been touched by mental illness. Let’s lift each other up. Raise your horns!””

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale: “I Have A Lot Of New Material That I’m Excited About Developing”

During a recent interview on the “Everblack” podcast, Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale was asked if the band are planning to work a new album or a new covers EP. She responded by saying they are “kind of planning on all of those things” and that she has “a lot of new material that [she is] excited about developing.”

Hale said the following:

“Oh, absolutely. We’re kind of planning on all of those things. We’re gonna take some time and we’re gonna do an EP, and a couple of surprises that I’m not actually allowed to talk about right now, but they’re in the works as well.

We’re touring through the end of the year, but think we’re gonna stop in the spring and try to do another record. So I’m excited about that. I have a lot of new songs.

At this point in time in my life, my passion has also become my affliction. The writing of a song and writing something every single day has become absolutely the biggest part of my life. If I don’t try to finish something every day, I don’t feel like the day is complete. So, yeah, I have a lot of new material that I’m excited about developing. In fact, I got together with the guys a couple of days ago and was showing them some demos and they were excited about some of ’em: ‘Oh, that one was my favorite, ‘That one’s in my head.’ So I’m getting excited to create again. I love touring — don’t get me wrong; I really do — but that’s a whole other animal. So I’ll be happy to get back in the creative process now.”

Halestorm Share “Black Vultures” Acoustic Performance

Halestorm have shared an acoustic in studio performance of their song “Black Vultures.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Vicious.” Lzzy Hale commented:

“I wrote this song as a reminder to myself that I have survived…I’m still here…and I will forever be the last one standing, regardless of what beings, or forces of this world try to stop me. I hope this special acoustic version of Black Vultures brings you hope and reminds you that you’ve been a survivor since you began to crawl.”

Halestorm Planning To Focus On New Album In Late Spring

During an interview with Rock 100.5 The KATT, Lzzy Hale revealed that Halestorm are planning to shift their focus to a new album in late spring 2020. She said the following:

“We pretty much decided that in late spring, I think, we’re gonna settle down and just focus on doing another record. It’s crazy — after we finished the last record, ‘Vicious’, we had so much material that wasn’t even recorded, we had a lot of material that was recorded that wasn’t even included on the record, and then since then, we have about two albums’ worth of material. So it’s almost like ‘Vicious’ was a launchpad for all this new stuff to come. So I can’t wait to actually get it down and show it to everybody.”
