Halestorm

hsWith their debut self-titled album under their belts, Halestorm is doing what they do best – hitting the road and playing live!  The foursome who have received a lot of buzz for their female-fronted brand of rock and roll is no one trick pony.  While lead singer and guitar player Lzzy Hale does sparkle with impressive vocals that are reminiscent of the days of old with obvious influences from the great rock bands of the seventies, the rest of the band around her are stand-out stars as well.  Brother Arejay Hale on drums is a machine and quite possibly one of the most talented and fun to watch drummers out there today.  Guitarist Joe Hottinger isn’t called “The Candyman” for nothing, the tricks and treats that he offers up through his instrument will leave anyone coming back for more and cool-handed bassist Josh Smith rounds out the talented quartet. Where they all truly shine the most though is on stage; live, and in your face – in the true spirit of rock and roll.

Describing the making of the album as “going to rock n’ roll college” the band really opened themselves up to the ideas of their producer Howard Benson and left everything they possibly had in the studio.  The results? An album that rocks from start to finish with no apologies.  Channeling their influences from the 70s and the 80s, this album is a modern day throwback to all of the great rock albums of our time while still maintaining a sound of their own.

With their first single “I Get Off” climbing the charts the band is currently out on a co-headlining tour with Burn Halo and The Veer Union.  This tour affords them the opportunity to get down and dirty with the fans in smaller venues before they hop on to the Stimulate This Tour, one of the largest rock tours of the summer with Staind, Shinedown, and Chevelle.

On their recent tour stop in Northampton, MA I sat down with 3/4s of the band (Josh was absent) to talk shop…
