Widely acknowledged as one of the most vital and iconic bands in modern hard rock, Halestorm made a spectacular debut with 2009’s self-titled first LP, followed in 2012 by the blockbuster “THE STRANGE CASE OF…” – highlighted, of course, by the GRAMMY® Award-winning smash, “Love Bites (So Do I).” Both of those albums went on to be certified RIAA Gold.
Halestorm’s acclaimed third album, “INTO THE WILD LIFE,” made a stunning top 5 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2015 release while also entering Billboard’s “Top Hard Rock Albums” tally at #1 – both marking Halestorm’s highest chart placement to date. “INTO THE WILD LIFE” is highlighted by the record breaking smash “Apocalyptic,” which ascended to #1 at rock radio outlets nationwide, as well as the top 5 Active Rock favorite, “Amen” and “I Am The Fire.” Companion videos and much more can be found at Halestorm’s official YouTube channel, HalestormRocks.
One of the hardest working bands in rock or any other musical genre, Halestorm has spent much of its lifetime on the road, performing thousands of shows since their inception.
