CLEVELAND, OH - JULY 22: (L-R) Josh Smith, Arejay Hale, Lzzy Hale, and Joe Hottinger of Halestorm attend the 2015 Journeys AP Music Awards, Fueled by Monster Energy Drink at Quicken Loans Arena on July 22, 2015 in Cleveland, Ohio.

You may have noticed by now it doesn’t take much to get Halestorm out on the road.

With a full slate of summer shows already on the docket, the group has announced Halestorm’s Halloween Scream, a 19-date North American trek that kicks off at the High Elevation Rock Festival on September 22 in Denver and plays dates around the country before wrapping up October 22 at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, Calif.

Frontwoman Lzzy Hale says in a statement that the shows “will be a night for all the freaks…plus special surprises and collaborations for your entertainment!”

Halestorm is continuing to support its 2015 album Into The Wild Life, and Hale tells us she’s been pleased with how the group’s audience is growing:

“I think the biggest thing is just the reach that it has…I’ve seen so many kids come to the show; I’m not just talking about teenagers but little kids with their parents. And we had a 77-year-old lady come to the show the other night, rocking out, decked out in probably every piece of merch that we have. Definitely I guess just expanding our demographic, and also people talking to me about what the songs mean to them.”


Halestorm is currently working on its fourth album with producer Nick Raskulinecz, with a 2018 release expected.
