HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale told The Pulse Of Radio that the band set out to make a unified album despite its many different sounds. “This entire record is like one big song with different elements to it, so it’s hard to pick it apart — for me, it’s hard to pick it and say, ‘Oh, well, that’s my favorite song,’ because they all don’t sound alike and each one lends itself to the other,” she said.
Lzzy Hale recently penned a letter for Rock Sound magazine — to her younger self. In the piece, she tells the younger Lzzy about the band’s accomplishments, what it took to get to this point and the self-doubts she had to overcome.
In one excerpt, she writes, “You will wonder at times if you’re crazy for always moving forward, don’t. It’s that forward movement that will save you. You also will question whether or not you are ‘cool’ enough to be a rock star… you’re not… but neither were any of your idols so it’ll be okay.”
Later she writes, “You are tough, remember that no matter what this life throws at you . . . you can pull through. Your fervor and drive for the band are what keeps you sane, so use that, but don’t forget that you are human too, and to give that ‘smushy center Lzzy‘ some love once in a while.”
In addition to its Grammy win, HALESTORM is the first female-fronted rock band to lodge three consecutive No. 1 tracks at the top of the rock radio chart.
HALESTORM will begin a North American tour with THE PRETTY RECKLESS on April 22 in Nashville.
