FIRST SINGLE, â€œLOVE BITES (SO DO I),â€
IMPACTING NOW AT ROCK RADIO OUTLETS NATIONWIDE;
â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦â€ ARRIVES EVERYWHERE APRIL 10TH </strong>
Atlantic recording group Halestorm has announced the release of their hugely anticipated new album. â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦â€ arrives in stores and at all DSPs on April 10th.
The album is heralded by the electrifying new single, â€œLove Bites (So Do I),â€ impacting now at Rock radio outlets nationwide. The track â€“ as well as three other highlights from â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦â€ â€“ is featured on Halestormâ€™s new EP, â€œHELLO, ITâ€™S MZ. HYDE,â€ which is available today at all leading digital retailers.
Produced by Howard Benson (who previously collaborated with the Pennsylvania-based hard rock band on their self-titled 2009 debut), â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦â€ was recently named among Revolverâ€™s â€œMost Anticipated Albums of the Year.â€ â€œLed by one of our favorite rocker babes, singer-guitarist Lzzy Hale, (Halestorm) promise a more personal album for their follow-up,â€ the magazine noted. â€œBut donâ€™t expect them to get all sappy on us. There should still be more than enough of the bandâ€™s now signature raucous attitude and righteous riffs for any headbanger to get off.â€
Formed by frontwoman Lzzy Hale and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has been hailed far and wide as an incendiary new force in modern hard rock. â€œHALESTORMâ€ made a top 5 debut on SoundScanâ€™s â€œHard Musicâ€ 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.
â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦â€ marks Halestormâ€™s first release since last yearâ€™s â€œReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP,â€ which saw the band putting their unique stamp on a diverse collection of classic songs, including tracks by Guns Nâ€™ Roses, The Beatles, Heart, Temple Of The Dog, Skid Row, and Lady Gaga. Halestorm also unleashed their first-ever live CD/DVD, â€œLIVE IN PHILLY 2010,â€ featuring such favorites from the bandâ€™s self-titled debut as â€œItâ€™s Not You,â€ â€œFamiliar Taste of Poison,â€ and the rock radio smash â€œI Get Off.â€
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, and Disturbed. Last year saw the band traveling the country on the blockbuster â€œAvalanche Tour 2011,â€ joining such hard rock luminaries as Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, Art of Dying, and fellow Atlantic recording group Skillet.
