HALESTORM Interviewed In Paris (Video)

RockNLive.org conducted an interview with frontwoman Lzzy Hale and guitarist Joe Hottinger of Pennsylvanian rockers HALESTORM before their March 19 concert in Paris, France as the support act for BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE. You can now watch the chat below.

The members of HALESTORM told Swedish web site Metalshrine that the band has finished recording its second covers EP. The follow-up to 2011's "ReAnimate" will be out sometime in the next few months, "probably summer," according to Lzzy. While she and Hottinger did not reveal the track list, Hale said that the EP will feature "a few things that I didn't think we'd pull off, but I think we did." The band recorded seven songs, with six likely to make the final release.

Hale said about covering the songs, "We're definitely building each one in our own way. Sometimes that's hard, but we learned a lot as musicians by doing that. You can take the 'Oh, is this a good song?' thing out of it because it's already a proven song, so you just have fun and experiment."

Hale told The Pulse Of Radio not long ago why she thinks so many bands enjoy playing cover songs. "It's a reminiscent thing of when you're trying to make it and coming up in the club scene and also maybe it's kind of nostalgic, like when you're first learning how to play guitar, some of the songs that you used to jam to with your bandmates, and it's really cool," she said."

The "ReAnimate" EP featured remakes of songs by SKID ROW, GUNS N' ROSES, LADY GAGA and THE BEATLES.

HALESTORM, which won the Grammy in February for "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance", will return to the U.S. to begin the "HardDrive Live Tour" with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, starting April 12 in Denver.
