The original version of “Here’s To Us” is featured on HALESTORM‘s 2012 album “The Strange Case Of…”
The song was previously covered on a February 2012 episode of the hit television show “Glee”. Singer Lzzy Hale told The Pulse Of Radio at the time why the band let it happen. “It’s pretty much the strangest thing we’ve done so far as a band and also, I think, the most exciting,” she said. “There’s a little bit of controversy because, obviously, ‘Glee’ is very pop culture, it’s very kind of Broadway, and personally I think it’s really good for us, only because here’s an outlet for us that it’s gonna expose us to so many people that would not normally be seeking us out.”
HALESTORM has just completed the HardDrive Live tour with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and YOUNG GUNS. The trek wrapped up on May 22 in Milwaukee.
