Each month, RUN OUT GROOVE allows fans to vote on the label's next high-quality vinyl pressing, chosen from selections of unreleased material, reissues of out-of-print titles, titles that have never seen a vinyl release or brand-new collections compiled from the Warner Music vaults.
In cooperation with Atlantic Records, the very first worldwide release of Halestorm's “Live In Philly” will be released on vinyl, 10 years after the original album was recorded. It is available for preorder here.
Halestorm is comprised of Lzzy Hale (vocals + guitar), Arejay Hale (drums), Joe Hottinger (guitar) and Josh Smith (bass). Together, they have toured extensively, clocking a staggering 2,500 live performances to date with a diverse variety of artists including: Eric Church, Joan Jett, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top and Evanescence. Most recently, the band scored a 2019 Grammy nomination for Best Rock Performance for its song "Uncomfortable," featured on the 2018 LP “Vicious.” The nomination followed Halestorm's 2013 Grammy win for "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" for the hit single "Love Bites (So Do I)," which ascended to No. 1 at active rock radio in the U.S., making Halestorm the first-ever group with a female vocalist to earn the top spot on the format. Named Loudwire's "Rock Artist of the Decade," Lzzy was also selected as the "2018 Rock Artist of the Year," and two years prior, was named the "Dimebag Darrell Shredder of the Year" at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards.
Both Halestorm and their 2012 LP, “The Strange Case of…”, were certified Gold, further evidencing Halestorm's massively supportive fanbase.
Lzzy commented on the forthcoming release, stating, "10 years ago was the beginning of a new lifetime. We had just released our first album on Atlantic Records. It was a time of discovering who we were, not just to ourselves ... but who we were to the world. When I listen to this live album, I still remember the feeling of beautiful panic before hitting the stage at the TLA, a place where I had experienced the live shows of many of my idols as a young Pennsylvania girl. Most of these songs were relatively new and some we were performing live for the first time. I can hear the growling hunger of the four of us. We were ravenous and hellbent on proving ourselves on a new level. This show was a step forward toward a future unknown ... the rest is history."
Mastered for vinyl by Ted Jensen with lacquers cut by Joe Nino-Hernes at Sterling Sound, this two-LP set will be pressed on clear and black mixed color vinyl at Record Industry in the Netherlands and come in a gatefold tip-on jacket. Limited to 5,000 copies worldwide, it’s available to preorder Oct. 16, and shipping around Dec. 11.
