On April 10th Halestorm will release their much anitcipated follow up to 2009's self-titled album "The strange Case Of..." with the first new single, "Love Bites (So Do I)", now playing on rock radio stations nationwide.
The new track and three other tunes from the new record is featured on the group's new EP, "Hello, It's Mz. Hyde", which is available through any digital retailer.
Named among Revolver Magazine's "Most Anticipated Albums of the Year", the Penn state hard rocking four-piece once again worked with producer Howard Benson as they did previously. Revolver also included a few kind words on behalf of Lzzy's rock and roll persona, "Led by one of our favorite rocker babes, singer-guitarist Lzzy Hale, (Halestorm) promise a more personal album for their follow-up. But don't expect them to get all sappy on us. There should still be more than enough of the band's now signature raucous attitude and righteous riffs for any headbanger to get off."
Alongside a new album the group will also be hitting major US cities with Godsmack and Stained on April 13th beginning at John Paul Jone's Arena in Augusta, Georgia and continuing throughout the middle of May until the 18th in Flint, Michigan. All ticketing information is available on Halestorm's official website.
Halestorm also released their first ever CD/DVD combo pack named "Live in Philly 2010" featuring fan favorite tunes such as- "It's Not You", "Familiar Taste of Poison" and "I Get Off".
We were fortunate to see Halestorm with Seether in 2006 during the "Snocore Tour" at the House of Blues, as well as lucky to have met them. If you haven't had the opportunatey to see them live make it a point to catch these guys this year, it is quite an experience!!
