Halestorm Tackle Judas Priest, Marilyn Manson + More on Second Covers EP
Halestorm have lit up music charts with their 2012 album ‘The Strange Case Of…’ debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart and cracking the Top 15 of the Billboard 200 chart. The disc has also yielded the hit singles ‘Love Bites (So Do I),’ ‘I Miss the Misery’ and ‘Here’s to Us.’ Now, Halestorm are set to unleash ‘ReAniMated 2.0: the CoVeRs eP‘ which will pay tribute to classic and modern bands.
Much like the the first covers EP from Halestorm, which included their versions of songs by Guns N’ Roses, Skid Row and Lady Gaga, ‘ReAniMated 2.0: the CoVeRs eP‘ features an eclectic mix of tunes from the hard-hitting rock band.
The upcoming disc will feature Halestorm’s take on Judas Priest’s ‘Dissident Aggressor,’ AC/DC’s ‘Shoot to Thrill’ and Marilyn Manson’s ‘1996,’ along with Pat Benatar’s ‘Hell Is for Children,’ Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Gold Dust Woman’ and Daft Punk’s current hit ‘Get Lucky.’ See the full track list below.
Frontwoman Lzzy Hale spoke about the new EP, commenting, “Like our first ‘ReAniMate’ EP, the songs included here are a collection of both our favorite songs and songs to challenge ourselves. We decided to go more ‘bare bones’ with this EP, meaning minimal production with live, gritty performances. We recorded this EP the week of the Grammys, so the excitement and debauchery you hear through your speakers is very real. We hope all our fans have as much fun with ‘ReAniMate: 2.0’ as we did!”
Hot off winning a Grammy for the ‘Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance’ in 2012 and the aforementioned chart positions, Halestorm are bringing their acclaimed brand of rock to the stage to dominate North America and Europe in the coming months, wrapping things up in December back in the United States. Those who have seen Halestorm before know that the band is a force to be reckoned with live. Head over to Halestorm’s website to check out their tour dates.
