HALESTORM SINGER APOLOGIZES TO MOM FOR SONGS ON NEW ALBUM
Halestorm frontperson Lzzy Hale said in a new interview that there are some songs on the band’s upcoming album, Into The Wild Life, that might cause some uncomfortable moments with her mother.
Hale told radio station 98 Rock, “People kept guessing, ‘Okay, you’ll stray from who you are, because it’s your record.’ And I’m like, ‘No, no, no.’ It’s the complete opposite. It’s just further down the rabbit hole of everything that is Halestorm. So, I apologize ahead of time, because there’s a lot of truth to this record. I apologize to my mom.”
Hale said that the sexually charged lyrics of the new single “Apocalyptic” caused a scene while the band was recording it: “The guys never read my lyrics, so we’re sitting in this circle recording and I’m blasting in their ears and I say the one line — ‘Give me a red handprint right across my ass’ — and my brother (drummer Arejay Hale) literally stops playing. He’s like, ‘Wait, wait, that’s what that is?’ (laughs) So maybe I end up writing these lyrics just so that I can trip my guys up (laughs).”
Into The Wild Life will be released in Europe on April 3rd and North America on April 7th.
Halestorm is currently touring with Eric Church and has announced a series of live dates with The Pretty Reckless that will begin in late April.
