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!”

They handle the dirty work, and make the hard decisions. They keep the wheels turning and our dreams alive. Roadies are our Tour family. They are OUR people. And in most cases they are the only ones in this crazy life who understand us. They live it and breathe it. We stand with all the roadies who are struggling during this lockdown. And encourage you to show your love and support for the men and women behind the curtain. Please join us to support our crew families. Visit the links in our bio for #ROADIESTRONG merchandise and donation links – all proceeds go to the Live Nation Crew Nation Fund, which is providing valuable financial assistance to road crews all over the world who make live music possible.

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.”
