At the end of this month, Halestorm are set to return to the stage with a series of headline dates and a performance at Rocklahoma before they kick off their fall co-headlining tour with Evanescence. Ahead of those shows, the band have offered up their first new song three years, "Back From the Dead." It's the lead single off the group's upcoming, as-yet-untitled next album, due in 2022, and a raucous hard-rock rager about staying strong in the face of crushing adversity. "Back From the Dead" arrives with a visceral music video, directed by Dustin Haney (Noah Cyrus, Luke Combs), that portrays frontwoman Lzzy Hale and her bandmates in a morgue and cemetery somewhere between life and death.
"'Back From the Dead' is about survival, not in a physical sense, even though I know we all have been touched by death especially these last few years," vocalist Lzzy Hale commented. "This song is personal and written from a mental health perspective. I wanted to give myself and the world a hard-rock song we could shout out loud as the gates opened again. I was on the edge of this world getting completely lost in oblivion, but even though it was the harder of two choices, I didn't just let the darkness and depression in my mind dig me an early grave. I didn't just sit and let it take me. I've erased my name from my headstone, so save your prayers, I'm back! I hope this song, as I pass it on to you, reminds YOU of your strength individually and that you are not alone."
