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!  

“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.
