Halestorm To Write Third Album In January
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.14.2013

Billboard reports that Halestorm are set to begin writing their third album in January after finishing their North American tour on Sunday in Chicago.

Drummer Arejay Hale said the band will go to Nashville to "lock ourselves in there for the entire month of January and just write our asses off". The album would be the follow-up to 2012's The Strange Case Of..., which won a Grammy.

Hale said: "With all the touring we've been doing we really haven't had a chance to all sit down and write together as a band. We've been writing constantly, kind of here and there on the road. It's kind of tough on the road because our days are pretty swamped and it's hard to get into that creative mentality. We're focused on performing and the shows and not quite as consumed with the writing process. Every once in awhile we'll write something and crudely record it on our phones real quick or something. It's more about writing and ideas rather than producing a song; I think we get a lot more done when we're all together. So we're gonna go in and have the mentality of 'It's crunch time. We've got to write an album.' The best thing we can do is what gets us excited at the time. We did that with ('The Strange Case of..'). We weren't trying to top the (first) album or mimic it. We were trying to create something we were excited about. This album is going to be the same thing; we'll all sit down and if we get excited about something we're gonna chase it."

He also said that the band may be influenced by the songs it chose for its second covers EP ReAniMate 2.0, which was released in October. The album features covers of Judas Priest, AC/DC, Pat Benatar and Marilyn Manson in addition to Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and Fleetwood Mac's "Gold Dust Woman."

He added: "It's really a challenge; we have to take these songs and kind of turn them into Halestorm songs, which is almost like training for us as a band. On the first covers EP we did 'Slave to the Grind' by Skid Row, and that inspired us to write 'Love Bites;' 'Let's write our own song with this kind of energy.' So it's inspiring for us to learn other people's songs. It's great training for any band that wants to feel inspired to write their own songs to try out other people's songs. It starts the creative juices for your own stuff."
