A band a day...Halestorm.

It's rare to find a band these days where the members have been together more than five years. Sometimes lineups change after every album.

Meet Halestorm.

Halestorm is:
Lzzy Hale (vocals)
Arejay Hale (drums)
Joe Storm (guitarist)
Josh Storm (guitarist)

OMG! Get it?!?

Take Janis Joplin and make her the frontwoman of Shinedown and you have something that sounds like Halestorm.

Halestorm has existed as a band since 1997 in their home state of Pennsylvania.

And they have remained steadfast with all four original members since its existence. It has paid off in spades.

They built a huge fanbase in the state and the region and in 2005, they were signed by Atlantic Records to a major label record deal.

The very next year, they were thrown onto a super tour called the Sno-core tour where they played alongside of Seether, Shinedown, and Flyleaf.

Since then, they've laid low...but not for much longer.

Halestorm actually made an appearance on Jay Leno in 2007 where they acted like total fools and sang Fergalicious.

But not all of the things they've done have been silly. In the three years since they've been signed, they've been hard at work on their Atlantic debut. Howard Benson, who produced their friends Theory of a Deadman's latest record, is working on their record. Given his recent history of hits, Halestorm is not far behind.

In the meantime, you can watch the Studio Sessions of them hard at work...well, maybe not so much...

Studio Sessions:
Part 4 (Take a look at this one especially...classic.)
