HALESTORM vocalist/guitarist Lzzy Hale is featured in a new audio interview with Australia-based DJs Mad Mike and Lucky Phil. CHeck it out below:
As previously reported, Hale and IN THIS MOMENT singer Maria Brink recently interviewed each other via Twitter for the Grammy Awards' interview series The World Is Listening. Check out the transcript of the back-and-forth Q&A here.
Lzzy: "Your show is so theatrical! Is this a direction you've always wanted to take with In This Moment?"
Maria: "I feel blessed and a sense of responsibility to make sure that my art is fully understood, as it comes across very dark.I want our fans to realize that dark & death is a metaphor for new beginnings and letting go of the past as a way to light."
Halestorm have been nominated for a Grammy Award in the category Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for their song 'Love Bites (So Do I)'. IRON MAIDEN, ANTHRAX, MEGADETH, LAMB OF GOD and MARILYN MANSON were also nominated.
Loudwire.com caught up with vocalist Lzzy Hale to discuss the nomination:
Hale: "It’s crazy, it means a lot considering the rock/metal performance category – it’s kind of like a personal victory for the four of us. The performance of our live shows, that’s what we love most. It’s really neat, we’re extremely humbled by it, we had no idea. In fact, I wasn’t even paying attention (laughs) to the nominees for the past couple years — that doesn’t happen to bands like us! I never expected it, but it’s really cool though — we actually found out in the middle of a show, so I got to announce it onstage and the crowd went crazy. I’m just so happy about it, it’s very cool. It’s just one of those things that you never expect to happen. You think about it when you’re a little kid: 'Oh it would be cool to get a Grammy,' and then it happens and you’re like 'Wow, who screwed up?' (laughs)"
Loudwire: Not many females have been nominated for hard rock and metal Grammys. Have you thought about the gender aspect and does it feel like you’re representing women in rock?
Hale: "Definitely, I’m also really honored to be the only chick in this category right now (laughs) — it’s really neat. I think just in the past year there have been so many girls that come to our shows who are basically saying, 'It gives me so much encouragement because you’re doing this and that means I can, too.' I’m happy to be holding that flag at the moment for all of the much more talented young girls that are going to be coming up behind me – it’s neat to be representin'."
