Lzzy Hale of Halestorm is rocking out once again in the music video for “Wicked Ways.”
“In this eerie confessional … I’m confronting the darkness inside of me, but this isn’t my first time … Thanks to the vision of Dustin Haney, who is also responsible for our ‘Back From the Dead’ video, I return to light that darkness that I will never betray”
said Hale about the band’s latest music video.
According to Blabbermouth, Lzzy said that she and her bandmates recorded the new album with two producers for the first time ever: “We went back with Nick Raskulinecz [who helmed ‘Vicious’]. And then I ended up doing my vocals with Scott Stevens from the Exies. He’s like a brother from another mother with me. We’ve written together before, and we’ve known each other for probably just shy of a decade now. He and I, we produced and did all the vocals for ‘Back From The Dead’ with each other, because I went out to L.A. And then we ended up sending it to Nick, and Nick’s, like, ‘This is just absolutely amazing. We have to do every song this way.’ So we kind of did it differently. We ended up with the bare bones of a demo. I ended up finishing all of my vocals — like dunzo — before we ended up building the track musically. So it’s kind of like building a pyramid upside down. But it ended up really just having this different energy, because what we were able to do with the lyrics and melody and all the vocals being done would really accentuate all of that — matching the theme to whatever I was singing about, but also just kind of really supporting the vocals musically when we went in to do the guitars and drums and bass. It’s so crazy — it definitely has this very forward, very aggressive nature to it because of the way that we did that.”
“Back from the dead again” is the latest album from Halestorm and was released on May 6th of this year. You can stream the album now on all music streaming services.
