" will immediately receive a digital download of the complete album with the option to receive the physical copy on the release date.
Produced by Howard Benson (Daughtry, My Chemical Romance, Flyleaf), "Halestorm" is an explosive collection of infectious hard rock anthems, a fiery flurry of sexy hooks and rough and tumble grooves. Steering this runaway train is dynamic singer/guitarist Lzzy Hale, who brings a hypnotic intensity to such tracks as the sensual "I Get Off" and "Bet U Wish U Had Me Back".
"This album has been a long time coming," says Lzzy. "There’s been a lot of dirty work that went into making it. Creatively, we went to rock ’n’ roll college through the experience. It was crazy, raw, down and dirty. Our blood, sweat, and tears went into this thing."
Halestorm has slated an all-out tour schedule to herald the album’s release. The dates kick off on February 19th with a performance alongside Avenged Sevenfold at Indianapolis’ Egyptian Room. From there, the band will take to the road alongside Shinedown, beginning February 25th at The Music Farm in Charleston, South Carolina, and then running through an April 4th tour finale at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire’s Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom.
Formed in 1998 by Lzzy and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has made its bones as a major league hard rock outfit via countless North American gigs alongside such like-minded artists as Shinedown, Seether, Flyleaf, and Trapt. 2006 saw the release of Halestorm’s debut Atlantic EP, "One And Done," which expertly captured the intensity and energy of the band’s live show.
