Halestorm have released the official live video for Wicked Ways, a song from the band’s latest studio album, Back From The Dead. The clip was filmed during Halestorm’s October 4 concert at Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado and you can watch it below.

Back From The Dead was released in May via Atlantic. The follow-up to 2018’s Vicious was produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Mastodon, Alice In Chains) with co-production by Scott Stevens (Shinedown, Daughtry, New Years Day).

When the Wicked Ways music video was released in July, Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale stated about the song and the clip: “In this eerie confessional…. I’m confronting the darkness inside of me, but this isn’t my first time… Thanks to the vision of Dustin Haney, who is also responsible for our Back From The Dead video, I return to light that darkness that I will never betray.”

According to a press release, Back From The Dead quickly evolved from songwriting exercises into a matter of survival for Halestorm. Lzzy said: “We started writing this album about three months B.C. (Before COVID). Once we went into lockdown and were unable to perform and tour, I fell into a dark place and something of an identity crisis. This album is the story of me carving myself out of that abyss. It is a journey of navigating mental health, debauchery, survival, redemption, rediscovery, and still maintaining faith in humanity.”

Last November, Lzzy told the 105.7 The Point radio station about the musical direction of the new Halestorm material: “This album is absolutely a banger. It’s on eleven. We have really just kind of exceeded all of the energy that has come before on these albums, both technically, music-wise, vocally, drum, lyric-wise.

“I think because of the roller-coaster ride when we were making this record, and just through the pandemic and all the different phases of that, we just kind of looked at each other, like, if the future is unknown and we don’t know whether we’re actually going to be out and playing these things, everything has to be, like I said, at eleven. It’s Halestorm elevated.”
