Pennsylvanian hard rockers Halestorm have announced details of seven UK shows for later this year.

Speaking about their return to the UK, Halestorm said: “Hello UK Freaks!! We are so excited to return to you with our biggest headlining tour ever!

“And we are beyond pumped to finally get to perform at the legendary Brixton Academy, one of the places that has been on our rock n roll bucket list forever! Can’t wait to see all of you there!”

The band have been working on their fourth studio album in Nashville with producer Nick Raskulinecz with a release date set for later this year with Lzzy Hale saying: “It’s definitely a step forward for us. I think you’re really going to see something that comes from all four corners of Halestorm, what each of us brings to the table and just how important all four pillars are in this band.

“We’re really pumped about having something new, and I just hope everyone likes it – and, regardless, we’re stoked on it.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
