HALESTORM’s LZZY HALE Defends Making A ‘Lighter’ Album
Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale recently did an interview with “May The Rock Be With You” and said that the band didn’t set out to make a lighter album with “Into The Wild Life” — even though it worked out that way.
Hale explained, “When we were talking about making songs heavier, it didn’t necessarily mean stacks of Mesa Boogies and a lot of crunch and layers and walls of guitars.” Hale added that the band followed only two rules while recording: “We’re not going to record the record in the same way that we did the last two, and is it good or not?”
Hale said their new album feels like a natural evolution for the band while they recorded it. “The actual meaning of and the reason that albums are called albums is because it is a snapshot, it is a collection of imagery and sonically, you know, of a place and time in your life. And everyone keeps coming up to us that has heard the new record and says, ‘Oh my gosh, this is such a leap from your last record,’ and to us, ’cause we’ve just been living it, it’s like, ‘Oh no, it’s not!'”
Halestorm’s third album, “Into The Wild Life”, sold around 56,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 5 on The Billboard 200 chart.
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 started a North American tour with The Pretty Reckless on April 22 in Nashville.
