From the start, Halestorm achieved success with singles "I Get Off," "It's Not You" and "Love Bites (So Do I)," for which the band took home the Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance. A decade of writing and playing music provided the group, created by siblings Arejay and Lzzy Hale, with the skills they needed to reach the mainstream. The rock band is noted for its lyrics about love and sex that are sung by female vocalist Lzzy as well as a sound that harkens back to '80s metal. Through their continued success, the band has never been afraid to experiment, and this becomes apparent on tour when Arejay plays drums on everyday objects.
Taking the World by Storm
Arejay and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm seemed destined to make music. They'd been playing and writing for more than a decade when they released their first full-length album in 2009. The self-titled album featured five charting singles, and they followed it up with The Strange Case Of..., which performed even better. "Freak Like Me" jumped to the top of Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart in the United States, and "I Miss the Misery" was only one spot behind. In fact, every original Halestorm album has boasted at least one No. 1 single, with their first two albums earning gold certification from the RIAA and their two more recent albums (Into the Wild Life and Vicious) reaching No. 1 on both US and UK rock charts. In addition to those albums, Halestorm has released three albums where they cover music from Daft Punk to Pat Benatar to Pearl Jam, putting their unique spin on much-loved songs. When not recording, they're busy playing arenas and festivals around the world.
