The Grammy-winning, record-breaking group have been holed up in Nashville recently, working with producer Nick Raskulinecz on their fourth studio album, due out later this Summer on Atlantic Records. Join their 1.3 million Facebook ‘likers’ and check out some candid studio snaps the band have been sharing on their official page here. Talking to Billboard about the new album, charismatic frontwoman Lzzy Hale described it as “very rock. It’s definitely a step forward for us. I think you’re really going to see something that comes from all four corners of Halestorm, what each of us brings to the table and just how important all four pillars are in this band. We’re really pumped about having something new, and I just hope everyone likes it — and, regardless, we’re stoked on it.” The band have debuted one new song live so far, titled ‘Black Vultures’.
Halestorm will spend April/May on the road in the USA, playing festivals and co-headlining a milestone North American tour showcasing all female-fronted hard rock groups.
