Halestorm meets their own Sinister Doppelgangers in Original Rock Graphic Novel 'Hyde Manor'

halegraphpre322
'Hyde Manor' is set to be released this Halloween, Oct 31st, through Z2 Comics. Z2 Comics will transform Halestorm into art for Hyde Manor, a sprawling gothic estate perched on the remote end of the Oregon Coast. It's the harrowing descent into one woman's fight with the darkest parts of herself while the group seeks refuge in the titular Hyde Manor. It looks marvelously wicked! You can pre-order it now via Z2Comics.com.

"Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the 2012 EP Hello, It's Mz Hyde and its ensuing LP, The Strange Case Of…, the Hyde Manor graphic novel depicts the members of Halestorm encountering sinister doppelgängers of themselves. Within the decrepit halls of Hyde Manor, mirror reflections independently talk back and photographs transform to reveal sordid prophecies, leading the band to slowly succumb to madness while recording a new album. The tale creaks and twists with doom-filled revelations, perfectly tied to Halestorm's scorching discography."

Halestorm is gearing up to release their new album, 'Back from the Dead', on May 6th and play the first show of the Blitz 30th Anniversary Concert series at Kemba Live on May 18th w/ Stone Temple Pilots and Black Stone Cherry.

SHINEDOWN fans wanted a BANGER and that's exactly what we got! Watch 'Planet Zero' come to life in their new video!

FM38897VUAM6JpC

Shinedown have released the thought-provoking and cinematic music video for lead single "Planet Zero". The video brings to life a glimpse of a dystopian future (complete with a menacing A.I. character named Cyren from the album's interludes who we hear at the end of the music video)that warns of the dangerous dehumanizing consequences of cancel culture run rampant.

On Planet Zero, Shinedown is serving up an incisive look at some of society's most critical issues, including the increasingly toxic division among those of differing ideologies, the need for honesty in our public discourse, and the corrosive effects of social media and cancel culture on mental health and humanity. The "Planet Zero" single rings the alarm with a cautionary warning that if we shut each other down, werisk losing empathy, respect for one another, and our ability to communicate and unify in a way that leads to actual progress and understanding.

"We wanted the first visual of Planet Zero to be unlike anything we have done previously. We chose to work with visionary director Charles De Meyer. We did not want a traditional music video feel - we wanted avant-garde, thought-provoking and surreal. Make no mistake, there is a message in the visual, a warning of what is to come, if society does not wake up, and demand the truth be told. Welcome to PLANET ZERO..." - Brent Smith

Their most ambitious and masterfully realized work to date, Planet Zero is a high-concept, ultra-vivid, viscerally charged saga. A critical yet optimistic look at the fractures and frays of a society that has undergone many challenges in the last few years, the album is part social commentary and part in-depth exploration of the human psyche. Produced by Shinedown's Eric Bass (who also produced the band's 2018 acclaimed album ATTENTION ATTENTION,) and recorded at Bass' newly built Big Animal Studio in South Carolina, Planet Zero matches its immersive world-building and takedown of authoritarianism with a deliberately unvarnished sound, and the album is spliced with interludes featuring Cyren, an insidious and unsettling robot character that appears throughout the Planet Zero journey. While a raw ferocity fuels much of Planet Zero on tracks like "The Saints of Violence and Innuendo," "No Sleep Tonight," and "America Burning," there is also hope, triumph, and reminders that we all need one another on songs like "Daylight," "Dysfunctional You," and "A Symptom of Being Human." After all, it is the band's impassioned striving for unity that has long been at the heart of their creative output and deeply informed the making of Planet Zero. Not only a driving force for their songwriting, their humanitarian outlook led Shinedown to be one of the first artists to fundraise for non-profit humanitarian aid organization Direct Relief in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, raising more than $400,000 with their "Atlas Falls" relief effort.

Halestorm "The Steeple" official Video

halestorm

Halestorm have released their music video for the new song "The Steeple", from the forthcoming Halestorm album, "Back From The Dead",  hitting stores on May 6th.

"We started writing this album about three months B.C. (Before COVID). Once we went into lockdown and were unable to perform and tour, I fell into a dark place and something of an identity crisis. This album is the story of me carving myself out of that abyss. It is a journey of navigating mental health, debauchery, survival, redemption, rediscovery, and still maintaining faith in humanity." - Lzzy Hale

No stopping this Shinedown train...or the Brent Smith Bobblehead!

IMPORTANT MESSAGE ALERT "We've made the difficult decision to move the album release from April 22nd to July 1st due to delays in vinyl production. We want to ensure our fans have FULL access to Planet Zero via every possible medium on the day it comes out!!!" - Much love and WE PROMISE it will be worth the wait! Brent, Zach, Barry, Eric

It seems that many bands that are releasing new albums this year, have the makings of their next one nearly wrapped up. Guessing that when you're creative and have a lot of pandemic downtime, you write. A LOT!  That's the case with Shinedown! Even though we just got the scoop on their new album "Planet Zero", they already have their next offering coming down the line. 

According to singer Brent Smith in a recent interview...
"There's a whole other record written. That's another thing that we're trying to figure out right now, too. We didn't just go in, write these potential songs, and then that was it. We had a whole other section of things. These songs are the most important for right now,"

Planet Zero will be released April 22 and we can see them live here in Columbus the very next night! SATURDAY APR 23 AT THE SCHOTTENSTEIN CENTER: SHINEDOWN, WITH THE PRETTY RECKLESS AND DIAMANTE
