Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Says None Of Her Recent Efforts Has ‘Record Quality’

Halestorm recently shared details about their plans after they complete their fall 2023 European tour in an interview with UpVenue. During the interview, the band was asked about their plans and whether they could write new material while on the road or if they needed to be in the studio. The lead singer Lzzy Hale, revealing that her current efforts don’t have the ‘record quality,’ responded:

“We do a little bit of both. I’ve been breaking out some of my… I have a small rig that’s just basically for catching ideas. It’s not brilliant quality. So none of what I’m doing right now is gonna be like record quality taking, but just trying to organize thoughts.”

Hale shared that writing songs while on the road or backstage is fun and helpful, and detailed:

“And sometimes it’s fun because you’re in an environment where if you’re creating a song backstage, like today, and you go on stage, there is something subconsciously that I’ll be thinking about, like, ‘Oh, was what I…?’ It will be a fleeting thought onstage, like, ‘Is the idea that I was working on today, is that worthy of the stage? And is that worthy of the people that are that are gonna be listening to it?’ So sometimes that’s helpful.”

She added:

“Other times, it’s helpful to just lock yourself in a studio and be, like, ‘We’re not coming out until it’s all done.’ So, yeah, [we do] a little of both.”

In an earlier interview, the bassist Josh Smith also made an explanation similar to the lead singer’s and told that they think about what would be effective in front of a crowd and write their stuff accordingly. In the same interview, he revealed that the band started working on new music.

Halestorm released the deluxe edition of their latest album ‘Back From The Dead‘ last December, which includes seven previously unreleased B-sides.
