NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 04/09/12 -- Atlantic recording group Halestorm will herald tomorrow's release of their hugely anticipated new album, "THE STRANGE CASE OF...," with a special appearance on tonight's installment of the nationally syndicated radio show, Rockline.

"THE STRANGE CASE OF..." -- which arrives tomorrow in stores and at all DSPs -- is already shaping up as Halestorm's breakthrough release. The album's electrifying first single, "Love Bites (So Do I)," is proving the Pennsylvania-based band's fastest rising track of their career thus far having already ascended to the top 10 at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide. The album is currently streaming at http://new.livestream.com/halestormrocks/albumpremiere.
This week will also see Halestorm singer/guitarist Lzzy Hale teaming up with the legendary Dee Snider of Twisted Sister fame to co-host the official "Black Carpet" pre-show for the fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards Show. Hale will also serve as a presenter for the show, which takes place on Wednesday, April 11 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles with performances from Marilyn Manson, Korn, and more. For the first time ever, the show and the "Black Carpet" pre-show will be broadcast live on Xbox LIVE as well as the Revolver Facebook page. The Black Carpet goes live at 6pm PT/9pm ET and the entire show will rerun for 24 hours. For more information on the Golden Gods Awards, please visit www.GoldenGodsAwards.com.
Having recently returned from a European tour alongside Atlantic's own Shinedown, Halestorm will hit the road hard to support "THE STRANGE CASE OF...," beginning with a major U.S. trek alongside Godsmack and fellow Atlantic recording group Staind. The "MASSCHAOS 2012" tour gets underway this Friday, April 13th, at Augusta, Georgia's James Brown Arena and then continues through mid-May (see itinerary below). Halestorm will follow the trek with a number of major festival appearances both here and in Europe, including such annual events as Columbus, Ohio's Rock On The Range (on May 19th) and Philadelphia's MMR*B*Q 2012 (on May 20th).

Produced by Howard Benson (who previously collaborated with the Pennsylvania-based hard rock band on their self-titled 2009 debut), "THE STRANGE CASE OF..." was recently named among Revolver's "Most Anticipated Albums of the Year." "Led by one of our favorite rocker babes, singer-guitarist Lzzy Hale, (Halestorm) promise a more personal album for their follow-up," the magazine noted. "But don't expect them to get all sappy on us. There should still be more than enough of the band's now signature raucous attitude and righteous riffs for any headbanger to get off."
In an episode airing in February, the cast of Glee performed the song "Here's To Us," a track from "THE STRANGE CASE OF..." The track subsequently shot to #1 on iTunes' "Rock Songs" chart.
Formed by frontwoman Lzzy Hale and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has been hailed far and wide as an incendiary new force in modern hard rock. "HALESTORM" made a top 5 debut on SoundScan's "Hard Music" chart upon its 2009 release, simultaneously bursting into the top 40 on the comprehensive Billboard 200. The album subsequently sold more than 300,000 copies, and half a million cumulative tracks. Produced by Howard Benson (Daughtry, My Chemical Romance, Flyleaf), the album earned extensive acclaim for its infectious hard rock anthems, sexy hooks, and rough-and-tumble grooves.
"THE STRANGE CASE OF..." marks Halestorm's first full-length release since last year's "ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP," which saw the band putting their unique stamp on a diverse collection of classic songs, including tracks by Guns N' Roses, The Beatles, Heart, Temple Of The Dog, Skid Row, and Lady Gaga. Halestorm also unleashed their first-ever live CD/DVD, "LIVE IN PHILLY 2010," featuring such favorites from the band's self-titled debut as "It's Not You," "Familiar Taste of Poison," and the rock radio smash "I Get Off."
True road warriors, Halestorm made its bones as a major league hard rock outfit via countless North American gigs alongside such artists as Shinedown, Avenged Sevenfold, and Disturbed. Last year saw the band traveling the country on the blockbuster "Avalanche Tour 2011," joining such hard rock luminaries as Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, Art of Dying, and fellow Atlantic recording group Skillet.
