Pop Culture Madness magazine recently conducted an interview with HALESTORM guitarist Joe Hottinger. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
HALESTORM made history with its "Love Bites (So Do I)" single. The track — featured on the Pennsylvania-based band's breakthrough new album, "The Strange Case Of…" — ascended to No. 1 at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide, marking the first ever female-fronted group to top the format's airplay ranking.
"The Strange Case Of…" is shaping up as HALESTORM's biggest release thus far. The album made a stunning No. 1 debut on Billboard's "Hard Rock Albums" chart, while also making a Top 15 entry onto The Billboard 200. In addition, "The Strange Case Of…" has proven a top 10 success on both the "Rock Albums" and "Alternative Albums" rankings.
Produced by Howard Benson (who previously collaborated with HALESTORM on their self-titled 2009 debut), "The Strange Case Of…" includes such explosive tracks as "Here's To Us", which shot to No. 1 on iTunes' "Top Rock Songs" chart after being featured in a February 2012 episode of Fox's hit series "Glee".
