Interview: Halestorm on keeping each live show fresh

Backstage at Download Festival, Lzzy Hale talks about her love of playing live.

Having headlined the Zippo Encore Stage at Download Festival 2019 on the Saturday, Halestorm vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lzzy Hale opens up about her love of playing live, and how each of the band’s headline shows are a unique experience.

The band, completed by brother Arejay Hale, Joe Hottinger and Josh Smith, are currently gearing up to return to the UK in November 2019, including a huge headline appearance at London’s Alexandra Palace.

The dates continue to celebrate the release of last year’s Vicious, the band’s fourth full-length.

Halestorm released their debut self-titled full-length in 2009, the culmination of years of musical collaboration between siblings Lzzy and Arejay. They have subsequently released The Strange Case Of… in 2012 and 2015’s Into The Wild Life.

With a Grammy Award win for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance under their belt, they’ve also made serious dents on charts across the globe. Both Into The Wild Life and last year’s Vicious reached the top ten on the stateside Billboard chart, with both also topping the US and UK rock charts.

They bring their celebrated catalogue to the UK on the following dates:

24 November 2019 – The SSE Hydro, Glasgow
25 November 2019 – Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham
27 November 2019 – Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff
28 November 2019 – Alexandra Palace, London
