HALESTORM's LZZY HALE Discusses "Brightside" In New Track By Track - "Ironically, One Of The Darkest Songs On The Record"

Halestorm recently released their fifth studio album, Back From The Dead. The album is available in multiple formats for fans to save and order, here. In the new clip below, singer Lzzy Hale discusses the song "Brightside":

Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Mastodon, Alice in Chains) with co-production by Scott Stevens (Shinedown, Daughtry, New Years Day), Back From The Dead quickly evolved from songwriting exercises into a matter of survival for the band.

Lzzy Hale says, “We started writing this album about three months B.C. (Before COVID). Once we went into lockdown and were unable to perform and tour, I fell into a dark place and something of an identity crisis. This album is the story of me carving myself out of that abyss. It is a journey of navigating mental health, debauchery, survival, redemption, rediscovery, and still maintaining faith in humanity.”
