LZZY HALE: NO RIVALRY BETWEEN HER AND TAYLOR MOMSEN
Halestorm will be hitting the road with The Pretty Reckless starting in April and Halestorm frontperson Lzzy Hale was quick to dismiss any notions of a rivalry between her and Pretty Reckless singer Taylor Momsen in a recent West Virginia radio interview.
According to Loudwire, Hale said, “It’s not like that. Whatever that mentality is, that died out with the last generation. We’re totally pumped. Just seeing another girl on stage every night, do you have any idea what that’s going to do to me? Holy s**t, this is awesome! I’m just going to be so pumped. It’s going to be a great tour.”
Lzzy Hale on the tour: “I’ve been wanting to tour with her for a long time. I don’t know what it is about her, but she’s a freakin’ rock star, and I really enjoy listening and seeing the way that she carries herself. She’s carrying that rock ‘n’ roll torch. We’re gonna have a blast and it’s gonna be awesome.”
Hale said she was asked the same questions about rivalry when Halestorm toured with Evanescence, explaining, “Amy Lee is one of the coolest chicks I’ve met in this world. Everybody said the same thing to me beforehand: ‘I don’t know, man.’ I’m like, ‘Don’t knock it until you try it baby!’ And we had so much fun.”
Hale was asked in the same interview if she finds it difficult to maintain a relationship while on the road. Hale replied, “In a relationship, you have to literally have everything out there to this other person, and they have to do the same thing with you, or it’s not gonna work. I’ve never been a jealous person either, and as of right now, I’m dating someone who is the same way. So we have a very amazing trust thing going on.”
Halestorm’s third studio album, Into The Wild Life, will be released in North America on April 7th. The first single is called “Apocalyptic.”
Halestorm is currently on a new leg of shows opening for country-rock artist Eric Church.
