Halestorm's outstanding 2012 is paying off this year, as the band has already won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance and their award show appearances continued recently at the Revolver Golden Gods ceremony. Loudwire caught up with the band on the Black Carpet to discuss their award show experiences and they also spoke about their current tour with Bullet for My Valentine.
2013 turned out to be a memorable year for the Carolina Rebellion festival, but not in the way organizers had hoped. Expanding to two full days at a new venue (Charlotte Motor Speedway) with a high profile lineup had anticipation and expectations at a high level. Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not cooperate.
Halestorm are no strangers to covers, having already released one covers collection and recently discussing ideas for a second. But during a trip to an Idaho radio station, the band quickly learned and cranked out one track they might not have had in their arsenal -- Joe Esposito's 'You're the Best Around.'
3 Doors Down and Daughtry are having such a good time on their co-headlining tour run that they’ve extended it for a third leg. The newly revealed dates kick off at the beginning of July at the PNC Waterside Pavilion in Solomons, Md., and continue through the start of August, currently slated to wrap up in Cleveland, Ohio, at Jacobs Pavilion.
Halestorm have joined the ranks of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Foo Fighters, Metallica, Slayer, Rage Against the Machine and Slipknot among others in the metal and hard rock genres who can call themselves Grammy winners. But the reality of the situation is still setting in for drummer Arejay Hale.
