Halestorm Release Brand New Single, ‘The Steeple’
Halestorm have released the official lyric video for The Steeple, the second single from their upcoming fifth studio album album, Back From The Dead. You can watch its official lyric video below.
The Steeple follows the album’s title track, Back From The Dead, which arrived last summer. That track marked Halestorm’s sixth No. 1 at rock radio, and met rave reviews: Rolling Stone called it “a biting, cathartic howler about overcoming obstacles — even death,” and Consequence praised frontwoman Lzzy Hale’s “powerhouse pipes” and lead guitarist Joe Hottinger’s “blistering solo.” Revolver declared it a “raucous, hard-rock rager about staying strong in the face of crushing adversity.”
Back From The Dead is due out on 6 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).
According to a press release, Back From The Dead quickly evolved from songwriting exercises into a matter of survival for Halestorm. Lead singer Lzzy Hale says: “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.”
