On April 10, Halestorm will unleash their eagerly anticipated sophomore album, "The Strange Case Of..." Produced by Howard Benson (Skillet, Three Days Grace), the album features more of the arena-ready hooks fans of the Pennsylvania quartet have come to expect.
Halestorm's eponymous 2009 debut album spawned a pair of top 10 Billboard Mainstream Rock songs in "I Get Off" and "It's Not You", and UG is predicting even bigger results for "The Strange Case Of..."
We're thrilled to bring you the video premiere for "Love Bites (So Do I)", the first single off of Halestorm's upcoming album.
"The song is my little stab against the media's portrayal of love," Hale tells Noisecreep. "Your heart cannot be measured or judged by the quizzes in magazines and scenes in movies. So for both boys and girls I tell you this, love who and how you want, and for god's sake when love bites, bite back! That bitch can eat her heart out!"
When it comes to rest of the upcoming album's lyrical rawness, "Love Bites (So Do I)" is just the tip of the iceberg: "The guys gave me carte blanche to write about whatever I wanted, so a lot of personal stuff came out. Open up those floodgates! We've been living two feet from each other forever now, so a lot has happened - and I will add that my guys, musically, totally blew me away," Hale told Noisecreep last month.
Halestorm's "The Strange Case Of..." will hit stores on April 10 via Atlantic/WMG.
