Video footage of HALESTORM performing an acoustic version of the song "Chemicals" can be seen below. The original track was included as a b-side on the band's "Record Store Day" release "Buzz".
HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale stated about the cut: "Our song 'Chemicals' was written in homage to those we've lost and all of us struggling with mental illness.
"In this song, I dip into the personal insanity that goes on inside your head. Because sometimes you feel like you are drowning in the whisperings of your own mind, like you are the only one at war with your impending darkness. But, really, we are all in this together. We are all battling one day at a time. We, the fighters… We are the majority. So I made the chorus an anthem, an epiphany that we are all the same, and most everyone you meet has been touched by mental illness. Let's lift each other up. Raise your horns!"
HALESTORM's latest album, "Vicious", was released in July 2018 via Atlantic. The disc was recorded in 2017 at Nashville, Tennessee's Rock Falcon recording studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz.
Hale recently told a New Jersey radio station that the band would record a "secret project" before hitting the road with GODSMACK in September.
