The GRAMMY® Award-winning band’s take on Joan Jett & The Blackhearts’ “I Hate Myself For Loving You” will follow as a second instant grat download from Friday, December 30th.
“We are so excited to finally unleash our latest cover EP, ‘ReAniMate 3,’ said Lzzy Hale of Halestorm. “On this EP we were inspired to push the limits and challenge the ears of our fans. There are some surprises that you may not have expected from us, and there are also things that you’ve always wanted to hear from us. We were so incredibly honored to work alongside producer Nick Raskulinecz. He truly helped us bring these songs to life and find a way to make them Halestorm’s.”
“ReAniMate 3: The CoVeRs eP” marks the third installment in a series of covers EPs begun with 2011’s “ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP” and followed in 2013 by “ReAniMate 2.” All three EPs see Halestorm putting their distinctive brand on a markedly diverse collection of classic songs, with the latest edition featuring new takes on legendary tracks by Whitesnake, Sophie B. Hawkins, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Twenty One Pilots, Soundgarden, and Metallica (see attached tracklisting).
To usher in the holiday season, Halestorm released a cover of AC/DC’s “Mistress for Christmas” last week; listen here: https://youtu.be/S6Jtgg9JbGQ.
“ReAniMate 3: The CoVeRs eP” follows Halestorm’s third studio album, “INTO THE WILD LIFE,” which debuted in the top 5 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its release last year while also entering Billboard’s “Top Hard Rock Albums” tally at #1 – both marking the band’s highest chart placement to date. The album is highlighted by the singles, “Apocalyptic” and “Amen,” both of which ascended to #1 at rock radio outlets nationwide, as well as the top 5 Active Rock favorite, “I Am The Fire.”
Widely acknowledged as one of modern hard rock’s most explosive live acts, Halestorm are kicking off 2017 with an epic tour of Australia and New Zealand, beginning New Year’s Eve in Christchurch, NZ and then continuing through mid-January.
