Joe Hottinger Says Halestorm Are “Putting Together A Special Package” For The 10th Anniversary Of Their Debut Album

It looks like Halestorm are planning to release a 10th anniversary edition of their self-titled debut album. During a recent interview with Ned from KFMW Rock 108, Joe Hottinger confirmed that the band are currently “putting together a special package” for the effort.

Hottinger said the following while reflecting on the group’s career:

“It’s a trip, man. It’s the ten-year anniversary of our first record and we’re putting together a special package for that first album right now. Lzzy [Hale] and I just went through all these demos we made from 2005 to 2008 when we were making that first record. I had forgotten all about them. It’s like hearing these songs for the first time again. They weren’t terrible. There’s a reason they didn’t make the first record. The thing was there; the magic was there, that we fight for even today. I kind of realized that we’re doing what we’ve always done. We’re lucky. I get to do what I love with the people I love and travel the world doing it. What more could you ask for in a life? That’s what we were doing back when we were playing bars around Pennsylvania. Just doing what we love with people we love. It was on a much smaller scale. But what a trip. I think we’re going around the world twice this year. We end in Australia and Japan again before the end of the year. It’s awesome. It’s tiring, but awesome.”

The frontman went on to say the band will be “re-recording some of the stuff” from the effort and that they may add some new songs and covers to it.

Biersack said the following about the new version of “We Stitch These Wounds”:

“It’ll be 10 years since the first record next summer, so we plan to do kind of a reimagining of that record and re-recording some of the stuff, and probably some new songs added to it, and maybe some covers that we wanna do. So that’ll come out, and that’ll be really fun. I don’t know what the plans are outside of that, as far as how we’re gonna present that. But that’s the plan right now.”

He also added the following when asked about a possible new album from the group:

“What’s great about [2018’s] ‘Vale’ being what it was is that it was kind of the end to a chapter and that style and feeling of the band from the ‘Wretched And Divine’ era and everything. I think we all kind of feel like whatever is next, it’s gonna be something that’s totally fresh and new.”
