hsaycuc

"'Violence No Matter What' is about one thing and one thing only. It's ok to debate and fight and to think differently. But there is a limit, and the line must be drawn at authority held with violence, a world view that cannot survive without enemies, a promised return to a fabricated former glory." - Avatar vocalist Johannes Eckerström

"'Violence No Matter What' was such an inspiring piece to be a part of! Thank you so much to the boys for giving me the opportunity to express my angst against the horrors of this world through such a brilliant song!" - Lzzy Hale

Avatar's new album "Dance Devil Dance" will be unleashed on February 17th. Don't miss them at Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival at Historic Crew Stadium on Saturday May 27th.

cdlh_20230107-202033_1
For the 40th Anniversary of the release of Journey's hugely popular "Separate Ways (World's Apart)" single, Daughtry released an incredible cover of this song featuring Lzzy Hale. It's a GREAT duet. (Be sure to listen for it on The Blitz!) Check out actual studio recording clips and images from Lzzy below, along with the official lyric video!

"Chris Daughtry and I have been threatening to unleash a duet for years. What better way to do that than by paying tribute to one of our mutual influences.... JOURNEY! This song is not only part of the Stranger Things soundtrack, but has been my go-to for karaoke for as long as i can remember! I'm so honored to have been a part of this and I hope it makes you smile as big as I did while recording it!" - Lzzy Hale.

"I've always loved the song and I was wanting to do a classic cover and my wife and I were watching Stranger Things season finale and there's this incredibly intense scene and "Separate Ways" was a big part of this scene. It was so moving just the way it was used, it felt so cool and epic and I was immediately like "THIS is the one! We have to cover this song. Then I was like "how can we make this extra special? What if it was a duet? What if we got LZZY on it!!?? Needless to say I was pumped she said yes and I absolutely love how it turned out" - Chris Daughtry.

Ever seen a torched Tour Bus? Here ya go, compliments of Halestorm!

hsbuburn
Sweet Jeebus! Halestorm's tour bus was gutted with fire and flames that shot 15-20 feet outta' the top! It happened in the overnite on Thursday. Glad everyone is ok! Luckily the band members were in their hotel rooms at the time and no one was injured. All I know is I hope they were able to save Lzzy's stilettos and bad ass show shoes along with the gear...and family pictures of course. Joe, Lzzy & Arejay took to social media to let everyone know what happened and that they were all ok.....I Spy Miller Lite cans!!

"Old Halestorm had a night for the books. We were all in our hotel rooms last night and we woke up to our bus burning down at 3AM. Fun fun. No one was hurt. The Worcester fire department got there and put the fire out. They were amazing. Our fearless security Steve pulled guitars and luggage out of the bay. We all lost some stuff, but it was just stuff. The investigator doesn't know what started it, but it began in the bunk hall. What matters is that no one was hurt." - Guitarist Joe Hottinger

"Thank you to everyone for the well wishes. Like Joe said in his post, we lost some stuff, but so grateful that it was only stuff and no one was sleeping on the bus last night. I'm still shook, and emotions are a bit high today. But looks like the universe is not done with us yet!" - Lzzy Hale

"Wanted to first and foremost let everyone know we are all safe, nobody was hurt, nothing of great value was destroyed but we had a bus fire last night while we were sleeping in the hotel. I woke up to my tour manager, Mike, calling me at 3am to make sure I wasn't sleeping on the bus, our head of security, Steve (pictured here), heroically ran into the burning bus with a fire extinguisher to make sure nobody was sleeping in their bunk. According to him, as he looked under the door, the bunk hall was an inferno and he saw 15-20 foot flames rising out of the top of the bus. We're all so grateful to the Worcester Fire Department @worcesterfd for their bravery, and incredibly thankful everyone is ok. To all my fellow touring people, take bus fire and all touring safety protocols seriously👍!! And of course thank all of you out there for your love and best wishes!! Come pandemic, snow storms and now BUS FIRES you can't stop us no matter what life will hurl at us! See you at the next show✊!!!" - Arejay Hale

UPDATE: Halestorm - Back From The Dead (Official Video) throat punch \m/\m/

sduhfalukhfiajvasrvo
"Back From The Dead" IS NOW AVAILABLE HERE! Halestorm spent the last few months recording its new album for a tentative late 2021 release.

"Up from the dirt I rise. It'd be so much easier to just sink into the hole that I have dug for myself, the grave that this world, broken trust, guilt, toxic relationships, pressure, anxiety and depression have helped me create. But that's not who I am. Is it harder to pick myself up and out of the blackness that sometimes plagues my mind? Yes. But no one ever said being your best self is easy.

Self love is a full time job. And as always, music comes to the rescue. My words and messages in my songs that I've been so lucky to have unleashed for others empowerment… is also my empowerment. It is my life light, providing my nutrients from a muse on high, a fickle but gracious muse that enables me to balance my emotions, and manifest my destiny.

It reminds me how to love, and who looks back at me in this house of mirrors. A reflection sometimes bent, but never broken. Through music we heal, and rock forward, knowing that we are not alone on this journey. With horns raised, we march through the quicksand, and together we make it to the other side, hell cannot hold us down"
- I hear you, I see you, and I love you, Lzzy

We can't wait to see you there!" - Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee

"We have all been mourning the loss of live music, and patiently waiting, looking toward an uncertain future. Finally the future looks bright and I can't think of a better way to break the silence than with our dear friends in Evanescence.
