Halestorm fans rejoice! The Grammy-award-winning hard rock band earned the number one spot on U.S. rock radio this week. Their aptly named single “Back From the Dead” racked up an impressive 489 plays to knock Seether’s “Wasteland” out of first place.

The song is the band’s sixth No.1 at rock radio. It’s also the first, and only preview fans have heard from a new album set for release in 2022. Rolling Stone called it “a biting, cathartic howler about overcoming obstacles—even death,” and Consequence praised frontwoman Lzzy Hale’s “powerhouse pipes” and lead guitarist Joe Hottinger’s “blistering solo.”  Revolver declared it a “raucous, hard-rock rager about staying strong in the face of crushing adversity.”

On November 3, Halestorm revealed an acoustic version of the song to thank their fans for getting them to the top in time for Halloween.

In addition to having the No. 1 rock song in the country, Halestorm fans got another treat this week: the announcement of “Happy Hale-i-days,” a one-night-only streamed concert on December 23. The show, recorded in September at the Brown County Music Center in Nashville, Indiana, will be available to stream exclusively from Mandolin.com. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, November 5, 2021.

Halestorm are beginning their final stretch of U.S. touring in 2021 this Friday, November 5. They will join up with Evanescence for a series of co-headlining arena shows ending December 18 in Worcester, Massachusetts.
