Bad News For The Halestorm Fans Who Expect A New Album

We have good news, but mostly bad news for the fans of Halestorm.

Halestorm is working on their next studio album. But don’t get your hopes up yet, because it’s not coming out next year. Some new information about upcoming music dropped in a recent interview.

The New Halestorm Album is In the ‘Infant Stages’

During a new interview with TellUs Rock, drummer Arejay Hale discussed the developments in the songwriting and recording process for the upcoming album, which will follow their 2022 release, ‘Back From The Dead.’ Referring to the new album, he said:

“We’re just kind of in the infant stages right now where we’re just kind of putting ideas out, laying them down, tracking them, getting the songs and ideas together.”

What Inspires Halestorm for Ideas

Following the conversation, the drummer explained the process of making an album and how it generally occurs when the band sits down to write new music:

“There’s a process to making an album where we don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel until we’re well into it and we’re, like, ‘Okay, now we kind of know what we’re going for, what we want it to sound like.’ But we’re just kind of… It’s the creative purge era now where we’re just kind of like letting it all out, putting it down, throwing it up against the wall and seeing what sticks.”

Once the songs are finished, there is still a lot of way to go to release them. Hale explained and also revealed when he predicts their next album would be out:

“And then, of course, there’s also a lot of promotion that goes behind making an album. So even if we finished it tomorrow, who knows how long it would take for it to actually come out? So I’m hoping to get music out, if not next year, hopefully 2025, I’m hoping. If we’re going by the same routine…”

The band dropped their latest album ‘Back From the Dead’ in May 2022 through Atlantic Records. It marked the fifth studio album of Halestorm. Though it was planned to be released earlier, the band had to postpone it due to COVID lockdowns.
