Matt Stocks of Kerrang! Radio conducted an interview with HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale at this year’s edition of the Download festival, which was held June 8-10 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
HALESTORM made history with its electrifying new single, “Love Bites (So Do I)”. The track — featured on the Pennsylvania-based band’s breakthrough new album, “The Strange Case Of…” — has ascended to No. 1 at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide, marking the first ever female-fronted group to top the format’s airplay ranking.
HALESTORM will celebrate its sensational success with an epic summer touring schedule, comprising a U.S. headline trek, high-profile festival appearances, a series of much-anticipated European dates, and a number of support slots alongside AVENGED SEVENFOLD.
“The Strange Case Of…” is shaping up as HALESTORM‘s biggest release thus far. The album made a stunning No. 1 debut on Billboard‘s “Hard Rock Albums” chart, while also making a Top 15 entry onto The Billboard 200. In addition, “The Strange Case Of…” has proven a top 10 success on both the “Rock Albums” and “Alternative Albums” rankings.
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 No. 1 on iTunes‘ “Top Rock Songs” chart after being featured in a February 2012 episode of Fox‘s hit series “Glee”.
