New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Atlantic recording group Halestorm
has announced today's release of "INTO THE WILD LIFE." The GRAMMY Award-winning hard rock band's long awaited third studio album and follow-up to 2012's blockbuster "THE STRANGE CASE OF…" is available now in stores and online.
Recorded last year in Nashville with GRAMMY-nominated producer Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Eric Church) at the helm, "INTO THE WILD LIFE" is highlighted by the historic new single, "Apocalyptic." The track recently ascended to the top at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide in an astounding 9 weeks - the first time a female-fronted band has scored #1 hits at the format three times as well as the first to have #1 songs from two consecutive albums. Furthermore, "Apocalyptic
" has hit #1 at Mainstream Rock radio, marking Halestorm
as the fourth-ever female-led act to top the format more than once. As if that weren't enough, the song's electrifying companion video has drawn close to 1.5 million individual views thus far at Halestorm's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PXkCAiV0Ww.
This week, frontwoman Lzzy Hale will be introducing new songs from "INTO THE WILD LIFE" throughout each day on Sirius
XM's Octane. The band will conclude the week with a live performance and signing at Grimey's in Nashville at 2 PM on Saturday, April 18. For more information and details, visit https://www.grimeys.com/.
In other news, a new companion video for "Amen," the next single from "INTO THE WILD LIFE," recently debuted at RollingStone.com (www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/watch-halestorm-rebel-against-day-jobs-in-raucous-amen-video-20150302). Directed by DJay Brawner (Ed Sheeran, Panic! At The Disco), the provocative clip is approaching 1 million views at www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGchlqCjj8A.
In addition to its extraordinary popular success, "INTO THE WILD LIFE" has also begun receiving unprecedented critical acclaim. "(The album) is a different beast altogether," declared veteran rock journalist Jon Wiederhorn at Yahoo! Music, "one that forsakes everything that has worked for Halestorm
thus far (slick production, traditional songwriting arrangements, a radio-ready mix of rockers and ballads) and takes a leap into the unknown… The risk of following its instincts has paid off. From the angular, aggressive attack of the metallic 'Mayhem' to the plangent piano and aching vocals of the ballad 'Dear Daughter,' from the brash, confrontational anthem 'Sick Individual' to the offbeat church choir-flavored blues rock of 'Amen,' Halestorm
has taken conventional radio rock and turned it on its head. Challenging and eclectic, but too catchy to ignore, 'INTO THE WILD LIFE' is a spirited and slightly reckless release from a seasoned rock band that has learned the rules only to willfully break them."
Widely acknowledged as one of modern hard rock's most explosive live acts, Halestorm
will celebrate "INTO THE WILD LIFE" with an epic US headline tour, "Carnival of Madness
Powered by Monster Energy." The trek is set to get underway April 22nd with a sold-out show at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium, and then will travel through mid-June (see itinerary below). The Pretty Reckless
will support Halestorm
through June 3rd; Rival Sons and Royal Thunder
will open all remaining dates. For remaining ticket information, VIP packages, and details on joining the Official Halestorm
