RAT Rock News

Halestorm has unveiled the first teaser clip of a new track, which is the band’s first piece of new music since their fourth studio album, 2018’s Vicious.

The clip was shared on the band’s social media channels and is called “Back From The Dead.” The track will be released in its entirety on August 18 and is currently available for pre-save at

Along with the clip, which can be heard below, singer Lzzy Hale issued a lengthy statement that reads as follows:

“Up from the dirt I rise.

It’d be so much easier to just sink into the hole that I have dug for myself, the grave that this world, broken trust, guilt, toxic relationships, pressure, anxiety and depression have helped me create. But that’s not who I am. Is it harder to pick myself up and out of the blackness that sometimes plagues my mind? Yes. But no one ever said being your best self is easy. Self love is a full time job. And as always, music comes to the rescue. My words and messages in my songs that I’ve been so lucky to have unleashed for others empowerment… is also my empowerment. It is my life light, providing my nutrients from a muse on high, a fickle but gracious muse that enables me to balance my emotions, and manifest my destiny. It reminds me how to love, and who looks back at me in this house of mirrors. A reflection sometimes bent, but never broken. Through music we heal, and rock forward, knowing that we are not alone on this journey. With horns raised, we march through the quicksand, and together we make it to the other side, hell cannot hold us down.

I hear you, I see you, and I love you,

Back in March, Hale detailed the themes of Halestorm’s upcoming studio LP  saying, “I’m just now seeing this arc, because there were the songs that we were writing just kind of coming off the road, where it’s very confident and very live and energy. And then it kind of starts to get…still keeping the energy up, but then subject matter starts to get a little crazier and maybe a little darker. And then it’s kind of starting to dip into some more hope now. So I feel like, in real time, this is going to kind of be like almost a musical documentary of what we’ve gone through, through this past year and change.”
