Widely acknowledged as one of modern hard rock’s most explosive live acts, Grammy Award winning band Halestorm recently released a third studio album, “Into the Wild Life,” recorded last year in Nashville, Tennessee.
Halestorm recently ascended to the top at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide in nine weeks. It’s the first time a female-fronted band has scored No. 1 hits at the format three times, as well as the first to have No. 1 songs from two consecutive albums. Halestorm is the fourth-ever female-led act to top the format more than once.
Critically-acclaimed Stone Sour hails from Des Moines, Iowa, and has produced six studio albums, selling more than 2 million records. Originally founded by Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor, Stone Sour has received three Grammy nominations for Best Metal Performance and has won countless other awards.
“Those songs sound like if Alice in Chains grew up on the Sunset Strip,” Taylor said of their newest release, “Hydrograd.”
“We’ve been talking about getting back to that big hard rock for years, and we’ve really embraced it. Everybody mistook that we’re a metal band that plays rock and roll, when it’s really the other way around.”
