Known for their near non-stop touring – performing as many as 250 shows a year – Halestorm will stop at the McVean Gymnasium at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, Saturday, November 30th.
Pennsylvania natives, Lzzy and Arejay Hale have been performing since 1997, releasing their first EP in 1999, Dont Mess With the Time Man. Joe Hottinger joined the pair in 2003, followed by Josh Smith in 2004. Together they released their self titled album in 2009. The band is now touring to promote their second studio album ,The Strange case of… This album was released in April of 2012. Halestorm has also released six EPs, which includes their most recently released ReAnimate 2.0 in 2013.
“[The record lable] wanted us to finish the record in two months,” Arejay told us back in July, “which ended up dragging out six months because we wanted to wait ‘til we were absolutely ready. But the first two months of recording were highly influenced by our fans, and the people we’ve met on tour, and the places we went to on tour.”
Halestorm is a band that has truely found their sound in the ten years they have been together. Likely to be one of the most exciting nights of music in quite some time to hit Watertown, you won’t want to miss it!
