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.”
