Grammy Award-winning rock band HALESTORM have announced their new Reimagined EP, set to arrive as a webstore exclusive and at all streaming services on August 14, 2020. Pre-orders are live here.
For the new EP, the group re-envisioned and reconstructed various fan favorites from their multi-platinum catalog.
To introduce the project, Halestorm have shared the first single “Break In,” featuring Evanescence’s Amy Lee. “Break In” originally appeared on the band’s gold-selling 2012 album, The Strange Case Of… During the Carnival of Madness Tour, the Evanescence frontwoman joined the group for a stunning live rendition of the tune on a nightly basis. Recently, Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale hosted Lee on her We Are Hear interview series Raise Your Horns With Lzzy Hale. Together, they teamed up for a powerful performance of “Break In”online, inviting anticipation for the official duet. Over stark and shuddering piano, their voices reach soaring heights on this poignant ballad, uniting two of rock’s most recognizable voices.
Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale commented on the new EP and collaboration, saying, “Over the last decade, we’ve been putting out cover EPs in between every original album cycle just for fun…But this time around we decided to shake it up! For our Reimagined EP, we committed to only one cover but filled the rest with reimagined versions of Halestorm songs. It was such a blast to remake some of our favorite originals. One of the standout moments on this EP is a duet of our song ‘Break In’ featuring the amazingly incomparable Amy Lee. Produced by Nick Rasculinecz, we recorded this duet pre-COVID-19, together in the same room, live, as a full performance from beginning to end. Amy brought new meaning to this song, turning what was once just a love song into a statement of unity and support for each other. I hope you find something in Reimagined that brings you joy and hope in these crazy times we live in!”
