Halestorm Unveils Massive World Tour

April 30, 2012
imgAtlantic recording group Halestorm has slated an epic touring schedule in support of their chart-topping new album, “The Strange Case of…” The new dates comprise a wide range of shows, including a U.S. headline tour, high profile festival appearances, a much-anticipated European trek, and a series of support slots alongside Avenged Sevenfold (see attached itinerary).

Meanwhile, Halestorm is currently lighting it up nightly on a major U.S. tour alongside Godsmack and fellow Atlantic recording group Staind.  The “MASS CHAOS 2012” tour continues through a May 16th finale at Manchester, New Hampshire’s Verizon Wireless Arena. For up-to-the-minute details and complete ticket information, please visit www.halestormrocks.com/tour.
 
“The Strange Case of…” is shaping up as Halestorm’s breakthrough release. The album just debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart, while also making a top 15 entry onto the overall Billboard 200. In addition, “The Strange Case of…” is a top 10 success on both the “Rock Albums” and “Alternative Albums” rankings.

Furthermore, the album’s electrifying first single, “Love Bites (So Do I),” is proving the Pennsylvania-based band’s fastest rising single thus far, having now ascended to the top 5 at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide. Other highlights of “The Strange Case of…” include “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.

Produced by Howard Benson (who previously collaborated with Halestorm on their self-titled 2009 debut), “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. 
 
“The Strange Case of…” marks Halestorm’s first full-length 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-ever live CD/DVD, “Live in Philly 2010,” featuring such favorites from the band’s self-titled debut as “It’s Not You,” “Familiar Taste of Poison,” and the rock radio smash “I Get Off.”

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.
