It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Halestorm camp right now. With their new album ‘The Strange Case Of…’ due for release merely next week (and it being pretty damn awesome in our eyes) there was no finer time to have a chat about it and, thankfully, Lzzy was kind enough to oblige.
To check out last week’s recommendations go here & to see all previous recommendations go here! This week we decided to throw a theme into our recommendations in the form of female front-women. So enjoy some of the finest female fronted rock talent from over the years! This is not going down the road of “Fuck men! Women power!”, it’s just a little testament to some fantastic ladies and, of course, the rest of their bandmates…
You’d be hard pressed to find many bands primarily in their early twenties heading into their thirteenth year, but Pennsylvanian quintet, Halestorm, tick that box with ease. Having had a successful 2010 on the road with bands such as Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Sour, the band ended their year in the UK with Taste of Chaos, opening for Disturbed and Papa Roach before bringing in 2011 with a NYE show in Philadelphia.
When it comes to searching facts on members of bands, it’s easy to find the same bullet pointed list repeated over the Internet rather than hearing it from the person themselves. Looking at Halestorm, you’ll find something that stands out: a female frontwoman who has lived and breathed music her entire life. Lzzy was lovely enough to take a few moments of her time to explain, in her words, the best parts of being in a band, her fondest memories and where she sees herself in the future.
