The album is heralded by the electrifying new single, â€œLove Bites (So Do I),â€ impacting now at Rock radio outlets nationwide. The track â€“ as well as three other highlights from â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦â€ â€“ is featured on Halestormâ€™s new EP, â€œHELLO, ITâ€™S MZ. HYDE,â€ which is available today at all leading digital retailers.
Produced by Howard Benson (who previously collaborated with the Pennsylvania-based hard rock band on their self-titled 2009 debut), â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦â€ was recently named among Revolverâ€™s â€œMost Anticipated Albums of the Year.â€ â€œLed by one of our favorite rocker babes, singer-guitarist Lzzy Hale, (Halestorm) promise a more personal album for their follow-up,â€ the magazine noted. â€œBut donâ€™t expect them to get all sappy on us. There should still be more than enough of the bandâ€™s now signature raucous attitude and righteous riffs for any headbanger to get off.â€
Currently poised to embark on a European tour alongside Atlanticâ€™s own Shinedown, Halestorm will hit the road hard to support â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦,â€ beginning with a major U.S. trek alongside Godsmack and fellow Atlantic recording group Staind. The dates get underway April 13th at Augusta, Georgiaâ€™s John Paul Jones Arena and then continue through mid-May (see attached itinerary).

Formed by frontwoman Lzzy Hale and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has been hailed far and wide as an incendiary new force in modern hard rock. â€œHALESTORMâ€ made a top 5 debut on SoundScanâ€™s â€œHard Musicâ€ chart upon its 2009 release, simultaneously bursting into the top 40 on the comprehensive Billboard 200. The album subsequently sold more than 300,000 copies, and half a million cumulative tracks. Produced by Howard Benson (Daughtry, My Chemical Romance, Flyleaf), the album earned extensive acclaim for its infectious hard rock anthems, sexy hooks, and rough-and-tumble grooves.
â€œTHE STRANGE CASE OFâ€¦â€ marks Halestormâ€™s first release since last yearâ€™s â€œReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP,â€ which saw the band putting their unique stamp on a diverse collection of classic songs, including tracks by Guns Nâ€™ Roses, The Beatles, Heart, Temple Of The Dog, Skid Row, and Lady Gaga. Halestorm also unleashed their first-ever live CD/DVD, â€œLIVE IN PHILLY 2010,â€ featuring such favorites from the bandâ€™s self-titled debut as â€œItâ€™s Not You,â€ â€œFamiliar Taste of Poison,â€ and the rock radio smash â€œI Get Off.â€
True road warriors, Halestorm made its bones as a major league hard rock outfit via countless North American gigs alongside such artists as Shinedown, Avenged Sevenfold, and Disturbed. Last year saw the band traveling the country on the blockbuster â€œAvalanche Tour 2011,â€ joining such hard rock luminaries as Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, Art of Dying, and fellow Atlantic recording group Skillet.
