Halestorm join Roadrunner Records


Roadrunner Records is delighted to welcome Pennsylvania-based hard rockers Halestorm to the family and announce the release of their brand new album!


Formed by frontwoman Lzzy Hale and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has been hailed an incendiary new force in modern hard rock.  Debut album “Halestorm” made a top 5 debut on SoundScan’s “Hard Music” chart upon its 2009 release, simultaneously bursting into the top 40 on the Billboard 200.   The album subsequently sold more than 300,000 copies in the USA and half a million cumulative tracks.  Produced by Howard Benson, the album earned extensive acclaim for its infectious hard rock anthems, sexy hooks, and rough-and-tumble grooves. 


The new album will be titled  “The Strange Case Of…” and is heralded by the electrifying new single, “Love Bites (So Do I)”.  The single – as well as three other highlights from “The Strange Case Of…” – will be featured on Halestorm’s forthcoming EP, “Hello, It’s Mz. Hyde” which will be available in the UK from February 5 at all leading digital retailers. The track listing will be:


  1. 1.Love Bites (So Do I)
  2. 2.Rock Show
  3. 3.Daughters Of Darkness
  4. 4.Here’s To Us


The complete album “The Strange Case Of…” will then follow in a physical and digital format on April 9. Eager fans can get a sneak preview of the EP online nowat;v=18CsONbjOFE#!. Those who buy the EP from iTunes can later purchase the album at a discounted price, as part of their ‘Complete Your Album’ promotion. The album will contain the songs:


  1. 1.Love Bites (So Do I)
  2. 2.Mz. Hyde
  3. 3.I Miss The Misery
  4. 4.Freak Like Me
  5. 5.Beautiful With You
  6. 6.In Your Room
  7. 7.Break In
  8. 8.Rock Show
  9. 9.Daughters Of Darkness
  10. 10.You Call Me A Bitch Like It’s A Bad Thing
  11. 11.American Boys
  12. 12.Here’s To Us


Working again with producer Howard Benson, “The Strange Case Of…” was recently named among Revolver’s “Most Anticipated Albums Of The Year.”  “Led by one of our favorite rocker babes, singer-guitarist Lzzy Hale, (Halestorm) promise a more personal album for their follow-up,” the magazine noted.  “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.”


Soon to hit the road again, Halestorm are poised to embark on a European tour next month alongside labelmates Shinedown. The UK dates are on sale now and run as follows:

Wed 8th Feb - LONDON Roundhouse

Thu 9th Feb - NOTTINGHAM Rock City

Fri 10th Feb - NEWCASTLE O2 Academy

Sun 12th Feb - BRISTOL O2 Academy

Mon 13th Feb - LEEDS O2 Academy

Tue 14th Feb - MANCHESTER Academy 1

Thu 16th Feb - GLASGOW O2 Academy

Fri 17th Feb - BIRMINGHAM HMV Institute


True road warriors, Halestorm honed their chops via countless North American gigs with the likes of ShinedownAvenged Sevenfold, and Disturbed.  Last year also saw the band travelling the country on the blockbuster “Avalanche Tour 2011,” joining such hard rock luminaries as Stone Sour. Not one to rest on her laurels when the band snatched some time off the road though, you can hear backing vocals from Lzzy on the new Black Stone Cherry album ‘Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea’ (on the tracks ‘Such A Shame’ and ‘Won’t Let Go’) and Mike Portnoy’s Adrenaline Mob album ‘Omertá’ (on ‘Come Down’).


“The Strange Case Of…” marks Halestorm’s first release since last year’s “ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP,” which saw the band putting their unique stamp on a diverse collection of classic songs, including tracks by Guns N’ Roses, The Beatles, Heart, Temple Of The Dog, Skid Row, and Lady Gaga.   Halestorm also unleashed their first live CD/DVD, “Live In Philly 2010,” featuring such tracks from their debut as “It’s Not You,” “Familiar Taste Of Poison,” and the rock smash “I Get Off.”
