Halestorm – ‘Australian Rock Lifestyle & Debauchery’ Interview

Halestorm Interview Australian Tour 2023

Following the release of their 5th studio album Back From The Dead, Halestorm will make their triumphant return to Australia this week with huge shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger of the female-fronted 4 piece rockers sat down with Wall Of Sound to get you pumped for their return!

When asked what Australia means to them as a band, Lzzy states how:

“Rock is definitely a lifestyle with you Aussies”. Saying we are “The best” She followed by a story: “We’ve gotten into a lot of trouble with the locals. Last time that we were there we ended up pub crawling with a bunch of people that we had just randomly met. They were trying to teach me how to roll a cigarette, that kind of thing. It was like 4 in the morning we’re like…we gotta go, we have a show! Love you guys. There’s debauchery, there’s rock and roll, everyone’s so incredibly kind.”

We had a beautiful chat about what songs may or may not appear on the setlist, what they do to bring a different experience every night on stage, their graphic novel, and how excited they are to be bringing old friends Theory along for the ride; including a story about stink bombs and dive bar shows with them when they were writing their first record.

Check out the full chat below.
