Lzzy Hale Says Halestorm Are “At The Tail End” Of Making Their New Album

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation Virtual Invasion,” Lzzy Hale offered an update on the new Halestorm album. According to her, the band are “at the tail end of it.”

Hale said the following [via Blabbermouth]:

“It’s going great. We’re actually kind of in the eleventh hour. Everything is starting to really congeal and just reveal itself. So we’re at the tail end of it. We already have a first single picked; that just happened. So you’re definitely going to be hearing music sooner than later. As far as the release date of the record, I don’t have that yet.”

She also discussed creating music during the coronavirus pandemic:

“I think a lot of us [artists] were questioning, over the past year and change, about why am I still doing this? Who am I without touring? Who am I without all of the normal things that make my life normal? And we took, or at least I — I can’t speak for the guys — but I took writing when there was no real schedules, ’cause we didn’t know what was gonna open up, I took to writing to kind of have that be my escape, have that be my stage. So what you’re going to hear on this record is a lot of that, a lot of me placing myself in this spot, in this communion of people that I feel most comfortable, and just surrounded by everyone that loves the same music that I do.”

Hale also added the following about working with producer Nick Raskulinecz again:

“He’s so passionate and he’s just a fan of music. And I know that sounds surprising — oh, yeah, a music producer that isn’t a fan of music. There are a lot of those; there are a lot of those types of producers that are not fans of your music, let alone really listening to your genre. So it’s just great to be working with a producer that just loves the same kind of music and knows what we can do.

We’ve written so much material for this record, and a lot of it we end up throwing out and then rewriting and whatever. What people don’t understand is you have to be willing to work so hard just to throw it all away and do it again and make sure it’s right, ’cause it has to be right. ‘Cause you don’t wanna look back and be, like, ‘Oh, I should have said something about that.'”
