Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Dishes on New Album and Corey Taylor Crush
Halestorm’s new album was supposed be due out this fall, but it got pushed back to next year. Hale shares why in the interview with Revolver: “The reason why we dragged it on a little longer is just because we wanted to see how far we could take it -- or how far I could take it, at least.” Hale continues, “There’s always a line. There’s a line somewhere, right? We’ll find out. You’d think that we had crossed it already.”
The songstress also states that she can’t seem to get away from the sexual innuendos that were evident on Halestorm’s first album. “You know, I think that’s just kind of a part of my personality. [Laughs] I mean, I room with a bunch of boys: You could say the sky is blue and they’d find some way to make it into a joke.”
Lzzy Hale also says that a new song she wrote “I Hate It When You See Me Cry” is not one with sexual innuendo. “I was kind of always keeping this camaraderie and this not really talking about or burdening anybody with some of my issues or some of the things that I’ve gone through.”
The singer also reveals that her bandmates make jokes about her crushing on Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor. She confesses, “I’m gonna totally ruin his hard-ass reputation right now, but, you know, there’s something that I’ve always liked about the scary-looking guy that will, you know, in the morning call me Darling. [Laughs] There’s just something about that.”
She continues, “But I don’t think that anyone has really ever given him the recognition for what an incredibly handsome smile he has. He never gets recognized for that. It’s the mask, it throws people completely off."
Hale also says she thinks Slipknot’s ‘Gehanna’ is the sexiest metal song around. “Every time that song comes on, I still get chills, you know? I guess it’s the combination of the performance of Corey and just, you know, the words actually speak to me more so than anything else, you know, in my own battle of this weird kind of two-faced personality that I have. It’s definitely a sexy song.”
