Halestorm Will Kick Off A Headline Tour On June 23rd
Tour supports their most recent release, “THE STRANGE CASE OF…”
- Halestorm recently made history with their electrifying new single, “Love Bites (So Do I)” when the track ascended to #1 at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide, marking the first ever female-fronted group to top the format’s airplay ranking - The band just wrapped up the Mass Chaos tour with Staind and Godsmack
- “THE STRANGE CASE OF…” made a #1 debut on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart, while also making a top 15 entry onto the overall Billboard 200, upon its release in April
Produced by Howard Benson (who previously collaborated with Halestorm on their self-titled 2009 debut), “THE STRANGE CASE OF…” includes such explosive tracks as “Here’s To Us,” which shot to #1 on iTunes’ “Top Rock Songs” chart after being featured in a February 2012 episode of Fox’s hit series, Glee. Along with its popular success, “THE STRANGE CASE OF…” has also drawn critical acclaim, with Billboard praising the collection as “full of chugging riffs, wailing solos, drums that kick like a boot to the gut, and never-out-of-style soft/loud dynamics that lead to massive choruses.” “Led by one of our favorite rocker babes, singer-guitarist Lzzy Hale, (Halestorm) promise a more personal album for their follow-up,” noted Revolver in its album preview. “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.”
Formed by frontwoman Lzzy Hale and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has been hailed far and wide as an incendiary force in modern hard rock. “HALESTORM” made a top 5 debut on SoundScan’s “Hard Music” chart upon its 2009 release, simultaneously bursting into the top 40 on the comprehensive Billboard 200. The album subsequently sold more than 300,000 copies, and half a million cumulative tracks. Produced by Howard Benson (Daughtry, My Chemical Romance, Flyleaf), the album earned extensive acclaim for its infectious hard rock anthems, sexy hooks, and rough-and-tumble grooves. True road warriors, Halestorm made its bones as a major league hard rock outfit via countless North American gigs alongside such artists as Shinedown, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for My Valentine, and Disturbed. Last year saw the band traveling the country on the blockbuster “Avalanche Tour 2011,” joining such hard rock luminaries as Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, and fellow Atlantic recording group Skillet.
