HALESTORM's LZZY HALE, JOE HOTTINGER Play Another Acoustic Show In Nashville (Video)
August 28, 2016
HALESTORM frontwoman Lzzy Hale and guitarist Joe Hottinger performed an acoustic set last night (Saturday, August 27) at the Basement in Nashville, Tennessee. They were opening for Nashville-based rockers THE DEAD DEADS, who were celebrating the release of their new album, "For Your Obliteration". Fan-filmed video footage of Lzzy and Joe's performance can be seen below.
HALESTORM is currently preparing to record a third covers EP to follow 2011's "ReAniMate" and 2013's "ReAniMate 2.0".
The band's first two albums, 2009's "Halestorm" and 2012's "The Strange Case Of…" were both officially certified gold in March by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales of more than 500,000 copies. The certifications came after RIAA started including on-demand audio and video streams and a track sale equivalent in gold and platinum album award.
"Into The Wild Life" debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 album chart, selling 56,000 copies in its first week of release — more than double the first-week haul of their second CD — but has not reached gold yet.
