Halestorm Work All Day, Rock All Night in ‘Amen’ Video
Lzzy Hale taking notes rather than singing them? Arejay Hale slinging hash instead of swinging drumsticks? Josh Smith bussing kids instead of busting bass lines? Joe Hottinger selling guitars rather than playing them? No, Halestorm's members haven't given up music. It's just the band playing a little bit of "what if" in their new video for "Amen."
In the clip, all four band members find themselves in alternate universe jobs with each struggling to get through the day. But just one listen to the song "Amen" and you realize that Halestorm have an anthem on their hands and that their "Amen" moment is the time they're able to get away from the 9 to 5 grind and let loose by rocking in a club.
"This video was so much fun to make," says Lzzy Hale, who rocks a power suit, glasses and an ear-based microphone quite well. The vocalist tells Rolling Stone, who premiered the video, "This song 'Amen' is about taking ownership of everything you are. So we asked ourselves, if there were a Church of Halestorm, what would it be like? We include a nod to the rock and roll church we recorded our last album in and you see us truly leaving everyday life behind and stepping 'Into the Wild Life.' Hope you enjoy!"
"Amen" appears on the Into the Wild Life album, which arrives on April 14. It follows on the heels of the current single "Apocalyptic" and the recently previewed track "Mayhem." You can pre-order the disc in a variety of bundle options at this location. And look for further "amen" moments on tour this spring when Halestorm team up with The Pretty Reckless for dates running April 22 through June 14. See all the band's tour dates here.
