Music videos for your life.

From hard rock to country

There’s a moment in the new Halestorm music video, for its current single “Back From The Dead,” where the band’s members are zipped into body bags in a place that is obviously a basement morgue. 

The video opens with singer Lizzy Hale being worked on by hospital staff as she’s on a gurney being wheeled down a long hall and at another point the group is in a cemetery.  

Spooky? A bit.  

Thematic and fitting with the lyrics? Absolutely. 

“This was a really fun video to shoot,” said drummer Arejay Hale in an email interview. “I will admit there was a moment where I was literally lying in a dug out grave while extras dumped bags of dirt on me, and just a small part of my mind felt mildly freaked out. The dirt was heavy, I couldn’t hear anything and I had to open my eyes when my face was uncovered, so I ended up with a lot of dirt in my eyes, hair, ears, nose and mouth, but, hey, that’s what you do for your art!  

Halestorm plays Sept. 8, 2021, at Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville.

“It’s fun for me to do things like that because I love new experiences and being able to express myself creatively in a different way. Taking a shower after the shoot took a while; I had to do some serious scrubbing.” 

The hard rock act premiered its newest single Aug. 18 and has a new album planned for next year. The group has performed together since 1997 when the brother-sister duo started the group. It now includes guitarist Joe Hottinger and bassist Josh Smith.
