Happy Holidays from Halestorm! The group has finished mastering their new album, which is slated for release in early 2022. Singer Lzzy Hale has spent the weekend posting the new project on her Instagram account. You can check out the messages below.
On Friday (December 17), Hale posted photos of herself and guitarist Joe Hottinger and said they would listen to the final mixes for the new album that day. She adds, “I’m so proud of this album. It was the most difficult, maddening, and rewarding process yet. Not all of you are ready for this beast.”
A day later, she shared a photo of herself listening to the album after it was mixed and mastered and commented, “I am very grateful to all of my team for their incredible hard work, passion and patience. . I’m also grateful to my band members who came together to make this album magical. I can’t wait to release this beast into the world. “
Hale told Brandy Richey of Pittsburgh radio station 105.9 The X that his inspiration for the album came from talking to others and listening to their “survival stories”. She explains: “It was a really great way for me to find myself and to see myself in them, but also in my turn I feel that everyone is going to be found on this album.”
This will be the first time that the group has called on two producers to create an album. They worked with Nick Raskulinecz, who had previously produced ReAniMate 3.0: eP covers and Vicious. Hale once described Raskulinecz as the “fifth member” of the group.
They also worked with Exies’ Scott Stevens on vocals, who is like a “brother to another mother” to Hale, according to the singer.
You can spend the holidays this year letting off steam with Halestorm in the comfort of your own home. In November, Halestorm announced a special one-night-only live concert dubbed “Happy Hale-i-days.” You can see more information about the event scheduled for December 23 here.
