Saturday 5 December 2015
Pennsylvania natives Halestorm promise to unleash a turbulent torrent of infectious hard rock when they finally hit New Zealand, playing the Powerstation Saturday 5 December.
The band, formed by frontwoman Lzzy Hale and her brother Arejay while still at junior high school, have climbed to the top of the rock tree winning a 2012 Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance with their hit “Love Bites (So Do I)”
Releasing their third album in 2015, the group have also become Rock radio chart toppers with recent hits “Apocalyptic” and “Amen” following their smash “Freak Like Me”.
Lzzy Hale has been penning her arsenal of uncompromising rock n' roll anthems since she was 13. Her explorations of love and life on the edge are delivered with a hypnotic spell on stage, Drawing from influences as diverse as Pat Benatar, Janis Joplin, and Metallica, she has a dark sensuality that's undeniable and a dynamic range that cuts across genre boundaries.
Halestorm have developed as a band without compromising their identity. Ultimately that connection will be tangible, because Lzzy and co. were meant to be in a rock band. "My brother and I were very fortunate to know what we wanted to do at an early age. When I was 13 and he was 10, we got together and wrote five songs. We wanted to be in a band together, we wanted to make music, and that was it. Everything came second to that."
Tickets to Halestorm’s Auckland show go on sale on Friday from Event Ticketing.
