Lzzy Hale On Halestorm’s Upcoming Album “Maybe There Will Be A Double Record”

During a recent interview with Consequence Of Sound, Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale discussed what the band have been doing during the coronavirus pandemic. The group have been working on material for their next album and the frontwoman even said there’s a possibility that the extra downtime might lead to a double record.

Hale said the following:

“We have been writing a lot, so there will be new music at some point. Maybe there will be a double record, because of all this. I think it’s important to stay connected, not just in a musical sense, but to let everybody know you’re here and connected.”

She also added:

“The biggest thing is the future is unknown for us. Halestorm is usually booked way ahead and has our plans, and we know where and when we’re going to go on tour. This absolutely rocked our world, even though we were one of the lucky ones. We had finished most of our tour cycle for our last album, ‘Vicious’, and planned most of this time to write another record.

The funniest thing for us is that since this pandemic stated, we’re busier now than maybe we would have been. I’ve never had to learn so much technical stuff and videos and Zoom etiquette and all that. In a lot of ways, I’ve been enjoying putting myself out there and us out there as a brand. I had kind of inadvertently been preparing for something like this, and there will be a rollout of releases and duets and projects I’ve been working on for the past year or so that now have an opportunity to shine.”

Halestorm’s Joe Hottinger On New Music: “It’s Very Us And Halestorm, But It’s A Different Flavor Of Us”

During a recent appearance on “In The Trenches With Ryan Roxie,” Halestorm’s Joe Hottinger talked a bit about the band’s new material. According to the guitarist, the music sounds like them, but it has “a different flavor.”

Hottinger said the following:

“Lzzy [Hale] and I have — I think we’ve got four or five new songs that we really like. We’ve written 20 or 30, or I don’t even know how many — just so many — but there’s four or five that we’re, like, ‘All right. We’re on to something here.’ And they’re exciting, ’cause they are different.

We didn’t exactly know where we were gonna go on this next record that we’re writing — we still don’t totally know, but the haze is clearing, the fog is clearing, and it’s starting to reveal itself. And it’s rock and roll music, and it’s exciting. And it’s very us and HALESTORM, but it’s a different flavor of us.

I don’t think we could do the same thing over and over again. We actually did that before the last record, ‘Vicious’. We had a record written, and it was good, but it was kind of rehashed everything. And we couldn’t it. We showed it to Nick [Raskulinecz], our producer, and he was, like, ‘This isn’t the record I wanna make with you guys.’ And we were, like, ‘Thank you. This is not really the record we wanna make either. I know our team is pumped about it, but we can’t do it.’ And we just scrapped it and started over. And [it was] totally worth it.”

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale: “Most Of The Bands You Know And Love Won’t Make It Out Of This”

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale recently shared a social media post to urge people to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously. The crisis has had an impact on nearly everything including live shows, which will likely be one of the last things to return. Sadly, as Hale mentioned, this also means a lot of “the bands you know and love won’t make it out of this.”

Hale said the following:

“Hey all my freaks!

I get why everyone is excited about some states reopening right now. In my opinion, without a vaccine, this is like opening up a designated section of a public pool for pissing. But ya know… you do you.

I’m continuing to self quarantine, write an album and do my thing. But what I need to address tonight is the audacity of some people to assume that just because I’m someone of note, that I am not suffering because of all this.

I spend most of my time, 90% of it, on tour, which is NOT a reality right now. My crew is suffering, the future is unknown, and most of the bands you know and love won’t make it out of this. So if you are able, please be smart. Don’t go out unless it’s necessary, and if you gotta, do curb side, wear a mask, wash/sanitize your hands. And let’s band together to end this shit! Click the link in my bio to help all the road crews without whom the rock show would not go on!”
