Halestorm plans to release another covers EP in their “ReAniMate” series

Lzzy Hale and the Halestorm crew are starting to look ahead to the next EP in their “ReAniMate” covers series.

“We’ve been talking about it — not necessarily too seriously, but we’ve been talking about it ’cause it’s been brought up with fans and stuff,” Hale told Billboard. “People are starting to (discuss it) because of our past timeline. This is around the time everyone’s gonna start thinking about it. Our fans are starting to give us requests, so we’re compiling a list.”

Halestorm as unleashed three “ReAniMate” EPs since 2011. The band’s latest set dropped in January of 2017 and featured the band covering Metallica, Soundgarden and Twenty One Pilots, to name a few.

Hale says the covers EPs are more than just a fun side project for the band. Doing the EPs actually helps shape the sound and style of Halestorm’s albums.

“”You get to kind of step outside yourself for a second,” Hale said. “You’re trying to do justice to some of your favorite songs and maybe reach a little bit outside of your comfort zone.”

“It’s become a very valuable tool for really just laying the groundwork of what we’re gonna do on the next record,” she added. “So I’m sure we will (do another covers EP), I’m just not sure when.”

Halestorm is currently touring in support of their latest studio album, “Vicious,” which dropped earlier this year. Halestorm also spent much of this year on tour with fellow female-fronted rock bands In This Moment and New Years Day.
