In a brand new interview with Australia's "Everblack" podcast, HALESTORM frontwoman Lzzy Hale was asked if there are any plans for the band to begin work on a new studio album as well as the follow-up to HALESTORM's third covers EP, "ReAniMate 3.0: The CoVeRs eP", which came out in January 2017. "Oh, absolutely," she responded (hear audio below). "We're kind of planning on all of those things. We're gonna take some time and we're gonna do an EP, and a couple of surprises that I'm not actually allowed to talk about right now, but they're in the works as well.
"We're touring through the end of the year, but think we're gonna stop in the spring and try to do another record," she continued. "So I'm excited about that. I have a lot of new songs.
"At this point in time in my life, my passion has also become my affliction. The writing of a song and writing something every single day has become absolutely the biggest part of my life. If I don't try to finish something every day, I don't feel like the day is complete. So, yeah, I have a lot of new material that I'm excited about developing. In fact, I got together with the guys a couple of days ago and was showing them some demos and they were excited about some of 'em: 'Oh, that one was my favorite, 'That one's in my head.' So I'm getting excited to create again. I love touring — don't get me wrong; I really do — but that's a whole other animal. So I'll be happy to get back in the creative process now."
Hale recently told New Jersey radio station WDHA that HALESTORM was about to record a "secret project" in the studio before hitting the road with GODSMACK later this month.
HALESTORM has been on the road since July 2018 in support of its latest album, "Vicious".
The band's month-long U.S. tour with GODSMACK will kick off on September 20 in Green Bay, Wisconsin and end on October 19 in Independence, Missouri.
