STM’s Casper recently sat down and had a killer chat with HALESTORM guitarist Joe Hottinger about their album VICIOUS their
Since their inception in 1998, Pennsylvanian rockers Halestorm have toured extensively with a diverse variety of artists, including Eric Church, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, ZZ Top and Evanescence. They made history when their hit single ‘Love Bites (So Do I)’ ascended to No. 1 at Active Rock radio in the U.S, making Halestorm the first-ever female-fronted group to earn the top spot on the format. They’ve played toured the world and performed at festivals like Taste of Chaos and Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. The band scored a Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in 2013, and front woman Lzzy Hale was named the ‘Dimebag Darrell Shredder of the Year’ at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards in 2016. Both Halestorm and The Strange Case of… were certified Gold, further evidencing Halestorm’s massively supportive fanbase. Halestorm’s latest album Vicious was released on July 27 2018, and debuted at #16 on the ARIA chart, their highest position to date in Australia!
Comprised of vocalist LZZY HALE, drummer AREJAY HALE, guitarist JOE HOTTINGER, and Bassist JOSH SMITH, HALESTORM released their 4th studio album VICIOUS last year.
