In 2015, a sold-out crowd of 45,000 was in attendance at Monster Energy AFTERSHOCK to experience the best hard rock, metal and alternative artists, along with gourmet food trucks and extensive onsite experiences. Loudwire.com called the festival “one of the nation’s premier music events.” Elsewhere, Johnny Firecloud of CraveOnline.com noted, “…Aftershock has found a new thread, and the way they’re approaching the festival ecosystem may just defibrillate the soul of rock fests in America. They’re mixing vibrant alt rock colors into what was typically a monolithic skull-and-crossbones metal template of black on black, side-stepping the big-box corporate model and building peripheral excitement through on-site activities, enhanced Gourmet Man Food attractions and more” (February 18, 2016).

Halestorm “INTO THE WILD LIFE” ARRIVES ON APRIL 14TH

Halestorm

Halestorm-Press-Photo-1-Credit-Jake-Giles-Netter

 


HALESTORM MAKES “APOCALYPTIC” HISTORY;

NEW SINGLE HITS #1 AT ACTIVE ROCK RADIO,

MARKING FIRST FEMALE-FRONTED BAND EVER

TO SCORE #1 SINGLES FROM CONSECUTIVE ALBUMS;

GRAMMY®-WINNING BAND’S EAGERLY AWAITED THIRD ALBUM

ALSO HERALDED BY NEW SINGLE/VIDEO, “AMEN”;

EPIC HEADLINE TOUR BEGINS APRIL 22ND IN NASHVILLE;

ALBUM PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE NOW AT ALL DSPS;

“INTO THE WILD LIFE” ARRIVES ON APRIL 14TH

 

Atlantic recording group Halestorm has made rock history once more as their scintillating new single, “Apocalyptic,” ascends to #1 at Active Rock radio outlets – the first time a female-fronted band has scored chart-topping hits at the format three times and to have #1 songs from two consecutive albums. “INTO THE WILD LIFE” – the GRAMMY® Award-winning hard rock band’s long awaited third studio album and follow-up to 2012’s blockbuster “THE STRANGE CASE OF…” – arrives everywhere on April 14th.

 

Recorded last year in Nashville with GRAMMY®-nominated producer Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Eric Church) at the helm, “INTO THE WILD LIFE” is available now for pre-order at all DSPs. Exclusive physical bundles are available at the band’s official web store, with extras including pint glasses, a 2xLP yellow vinyl version of the album, and a limited edition autographed poster. For details and availability, please go to store.halestormrocks.com/pre-order.html.

 

In addition to its chart-topping radio success, the riff-powered “Apocalyptic” is accompanied by an equally electrifying video, drawing close to 1 million individual views thus far at Halestorm’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PXkCAiV0Ww.

 

Furthermore, a new companion video for “Amen,” the next single from “INTO THE WILD LIFE,” has just debuted at RollingStone.com (www.rollingstone.com/music/videos/watch-halestorm-rebel-against-day-jobs-in-raucous-amen-video-20150302). Directed by DJay Brawner (Ed Sheeran, Panic! At The Disco), the provocative clip can also be viewed at www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGchlqCjj8A.

 

“’INTO THE WILD LIFE’ is not a departure,” says Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale. “It’s an invitation to all things Halestorm. Lyrically and musically, we explored everything that makes us tick. We set a new standard for this record and gave ourselves no choice other than to be unapologetically ourselves in every way. Peel away at the onion that is our third record if you dare and let us drag you deeper into our world.”

 

Widely acknowledged as one of modern hard rock’s most explosive live acts, Halestorm will celebrate “INTO THE WILD LIFE” with an epic US headline tour, “Carnival of Madness Presents Halestorm Powered by Monster Energy.” The trek is set to get underway April 22nd with a sold-out show at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium, and then will travel through mid-June (see attached itinerary). The Pretty Reckless and Starset will support Halestorm through June 3rd; Rival Sons and Royal Thunder will open all remaining dates. For remaining ticket information, VIP packages, and details on joining the Official Halestorm Fan Club, please visit www.halestormrocks.com.

 

In addition, Halestorm will take the stage at a number of upcoming festivals, including Charlotte, North Carolina’s Carolina Rebellion (May 3rd); Columbus, Ohio’s Rock On The Range (May 17th); Kansas City’s 98.9 The Rock Presents Rockfest 2015 (May 30th), among many others (see itinerary below).

 

In other news, Halestorm has revealed details of “To HALE and BACK…” a new 272-page hardcover photo book created by the band with photographer Rob Fenn. Fenn – who has traveled with Halestorm since 2012 – captures the band at their most intimate, vulnerable and triumphant moments, whether it is backstage, in the studio, an arena stage or on the long lonesome highway. The first 100 orders of “To HALE and BACK…” will receive a limited edition Polaroid autographed by the band. For more, please see robfenn.com/product/tohaleandback.

 

Released in 2012, “THE STRANGE CASE OF…” debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart while also making a top 15 entry onto the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200. The album’s exceptional success was fueled in large part by the singles, “I Miss The Misery,” “Love Bites (So Do I)” and “Freak Like Me,” the latter two which made history by ascending to #1 at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide, marking Halestorm as the first-ever female-fronted group to top the format’s airplay ranking.   As if that weren’t enough, “Love Bites (So Do I)” went on to earn the band their first-ever GRAMMY® for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” at 2013’s 55th annual event.

The wait is over! Rock music’s newest and most popular awards show, the Journeys Alternative Press Music Awards, fueled by Monster Energy Drink, is pleased to announce this year’s headliners, award categories and nominees, as well as voting information, ticketing, broadcast details, sponsor partnerships and more. The APMAs take place on July 22 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, hosted by hilarious heartthrobs Alex Gaskarth and Jack Barakat of Billboard-chart topping, five-time AP cover stars All Time Low.

Fifteen awards will be presented, including the brand new Journeys  “Best Music Video” category, as well as the honorary “Vanguard” and “Icon” awards.  Last year’s recipients included Smashing Pumpkins founder Billy Corgan and Joan Jett.

Rock legends and four-time AP cover stars Weezer — whose 2014 album Everything Will Be Alright In The End is nominated for the prestigious “Album Of The Year” award — will serve as the evening’s headlining performance. “We’re incredibly excited to play for all of our fans at the APMAs this year!” said Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo.

Additional live performances include Panic! At The Disco, Taking Back Sunday, Motionless In White, All Time Low, a special performance from New Found Glory featuring Hayley Williams, Echosmith, Halestorm and the Madden Brothers. The world-renowned Contemporary Youth Orchestra will also be returning to the APMAs to accompany many of the evening’s performances and event proceedings.

After a much publicized battle with health issues, Deryck Whibley and Sum 41 will be making their triumphant return to the stage with a much-anticipated comeback performance. Sum 41 frontman Whibley commented,  “Playing live is the heart and soul for us. It’s our chance to connect face to face with our fans, and I’m glad that we get to share our first experience back onstage again at the APMAs. It’s also exciting to be a part of the event to support the first magazine to put our ugly mugs on the cover in America!”

Fellow pop-punk superstars Simple Plan will also be making their much anticipated return to the stage after a three-year hiatus from the American stage. Simple Plan’s lead singer Pierre Bouvier captured the excitement best by saying, “We’re super excited to be part of the APMAs this year.  It’s like the ultimate party with all the bands we care about and the scene that we’re proud to be a part of.  We’re also stoked to finally be playing some new material in the U.S. for our fans that have been waiting for so long. It’s gonna be a hell of a night!”

Last year’s “Most Dedicated Fans” award recipients Black Veil Brides will return to perform a special set. Lead singer and Ohio native Andy Biersack commented “We are so excited to be a part of the 2015 APMAS! Last year, AP granted me not only the opportunity to perform with my heroes, but also to give back to the fans who have given us everything with the Most Dedicated Fan award! We are stoked to perform and would be honored to win. But most importantly, we can’t wait to see everyone there!”

POSTER.randy_rhoads_trib_13

Regarding the brand new celebration, Randy Rhoads Remembered, Tichy also went on to say, “When the opportunity arose to have the venue a 2nd night, I catered to the guitarist in me and went for a brand new show as my partner, Joe Sutton, and myself had talked of this while brainstorming ideas over the years. We decided to take the Bonzo Bash template and celebrate the music and wizardry of one of rock’s truly legendary guitar heroes; Randy Rhoads! Having grown up at a time when Randy took over the guitar world, he impacted me deeply. It seemed that a show in the Bonzo Bash mold would be perfect to celebrate all things Randy Rhoads!
With that said, in addition to the superb list of guitarists, I am psyched to announce some more of the world’s most brilliant players to RRR!!!; Marty Friedman, Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne / Firewind,) Mats Leven (vox- Candlemass / Yngwie Malmsteen,) Mitch Perry (Lita Ford / Edgar Winter,) former Randy Rhoads’ student Janet Robin (Precious Metal / Lindsey Buckingham / Air Supply,) Phil X (The Drills / Bon Jovi.) We have not yet begun to rock! We are not yet finished with these lineups! Plus, anything can change up to day of show… and usually does!!
I must also give a big thanks to photographer Jay Banbury! He has taken some of the most iconic
live photos of Randy Rhoads. Jay has graciously allowed us to use one for our concert poster and t-shirt! Go to Jay’s website and order up some killer Randy posters now! (www.139creative.com)
I can’t forget to also mention that our bud Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne / Billy Idol / Big Noize) has become an additional member of the RRR house band, “The Madmen.” Rudy Sarzo is on tour with Queensrcyhe up to rehearsal day, so Phil is helping out on a nice chunk of tunes!
We also have to tell everyone to go visit the ultimate Randy Rhoads Facebook page,“Randy Rhoads Society” (www.Facebook.com/RandyRhoadsSociety) These guys are hardcore!”

GUITARIST QUOTES:

“Watching Randy at 10am in the Oakland coliseum was my 1st concert experience and it was life changing. It made me want to not only play guitar, but to perform with passion and emotion. I’m beyond honored to be part of this celebration of a true legend and an immense inspiration.”
~ Phil Demmel (Machine Head)

“As a kid I was a huge Sabbath fan, and was curious to see Ozzy`s solo band. I was lucky to see them on their first US tour at the Baltimore Civic Center. I had no idea who anyone in the band was. I couldn`t take my eyes off the charisma, excitement and overall coolness of the guitarist, Randy. He completely stole the show. I was just becoming a decent player myself back then, so seeing him really made me up my game. — At that time, Ozzy wasn`t the mainstream personality he is now, there was a shroud of darkness and even desperation around him and his departure from Sabbath at a time when Sabbath had all but fallen out of vogue. Randy was a beacon of light, literally lighting up the stage with his flashy guitar work and upbeat performance. I am convinced that he is a huge part of Ozzy`s longterm success. Tragically we lost him way too early. It`s nice to see that so many years later people have not forgotten the joy he brought to music, so it`s absolutely my pleasure to honor him by participating in Randy Rhoads Remembered concert.”
~ Marty Friedman

“Everybody knows that Randy Rhoads has been an inspiration to all generations of guitar players after him. But to me Randy was not only inspirational for his playing and writing skills, but for his attitude as well. I loved how low profile and humble of a person he was, always learning and moving forward. He was a servant of Music and that inspired me (and many others) on a whole different level. I’m truly honored to participate in RRR and celebrate Randy Rhoads’ life and music alongside these great musicians!”
~ Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne / Firewind)

“Randy entered my soul like a lightning bolt and has remained there throughout my life.
He was like a magician but it was all real.”
~ Tracii Guns

“Randy is one of the most amazing virtuosos of all times. His unique, personal style and his fearless melodic approach caught my attention when I was discovering the electric guitar. I have spent many days in my teenager times trying to figure out how to play his awesome solos and riffs. I am excited and honored to be invited to join the incredible line-up of guitar players on “Randy Rhoads Remembered.” Each of us getting up on stage to pay tribute to a great guitar player that is a source of inspiration to generations of musicians.”
~ Kiko Loureiro (Angra)

“I am totally honored to be a part of “Randy Rhoads Remembered”. Randy was a great musician whose talents influenced a generation of guitarists as we will see by the stellar lineup of players I will be joining on January 25th. Knowing everyone involved with this show (and previously working with Brian Tichy and Joe Sutton on “The Bonzo Bash”) I know this is going to be a night we will all be proud to have been a part of…”
~ Mitch Perry (Lita Ford / Edgar Winter)

Throughout the history guitar playing, there have been the undisputed masters of different genres. When it comes to the the nineteen eighties sound of hard rock guitar, in my mind, the two colossi have to be Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads. They did it better than the rest. Everyone has their corner and their mark of brilliance, but have to be, in my mind, relegated to ‘best of the rest.’ What I do, and so many others like me do, Randy wrote the book on, and showed us the way.
~ Rowan Robertson (Dio/ DC4)

“Randy’s approach to fusing classical music with heavy metal was so unique. I studied his playing like mad. Even his gear – I was reading all the magazines to see what he used, and I bought my first Marshall amp because that’s what he played through. Randy was definitely an early guitar hero of mine. He was unlike anybody around at the time. He played with such fire, grace and intelligence. Randy Rhoads’ playing still stuns me.”
~ Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Guns N’ Roses)

“I am so psyched to get this show together! Randy’s playing, and the music on those 2 Ozzy records were huge to me! I am a drummer but I also started putting a lot of time into guitar at the same time Randy came out. I heard Ozzy being interviewed on the radio when Blizzard Of Ozz was released. They played “I Don’t Know” and when the guitar kicked in I was floored and I was an instant fan! I spent countless hours trying to learn Randy’s songs, riffs and solos while I was also just a beginner on guitar. I tried to learn Randy’s live solo note for note! I had Randy’s posters on my basement walls! I still have those posters framed in my house right now! Brent Woods and I even shared a bottle of Randy Rhoads wine when it first came out!”
~ Brian TIchy (S.U.N.)

“31 years after the tragic death of my mentor and favorite guitar player, it’s time for a proper celebration of Randy’s legacy. Being involved with the Bonzo Bash since day one, I know Randy Rhoads Remembered will be a tribute unlike any other.”
~ Brent Woods (The Moby Dicks / Vince Neil)

“After school 1981. Drop the needle. ‘Blizzard Of Ozz’. WTF?!?! The guy who took the 6 in the pentatonic scale and made it minor instead of major so that ANYONE who plays it in sequence to this day is reminded of Randy Rhoads.
His heart, his soul, his choice of notes. His FIRE. That kind of inspiration stays with you ’til death. And now… 2014. Randy Rhoads Remembered. A bunch of as-inspired awesome musicians paying homage to this amazing guy who contributed SO MUCH to ROCK guitar. I am so excited to be a part of it. I CAN’T F@CKING WAIT!”

~ Phil X (The Drills / Bon Jovi / “Session Guy” for Rob Zombie / Alice Cooper /
Chris Cornell / Tommy Lee / Halestorm / Avril Lavigne / Daughtry)
