Halestorm have unveiled details of their new EP, ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP, which will arrive on October 15. The EP marks the acclaimed hard-rock band’s follow-up to 2011’s ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP. As with its predecessor, ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVeRs eP sees Halestorm putting their distinctive spin on a eclectic collection of classic songs, including, this time, tracks by Judas Priest, AC/DC, Pat Benatar, Fleetwood Mac, Marilyn Manson, and Daft Punk (see track list below).
“Like our first ReAniMate EP, the songs included here are a collection of both our favorite songs and songs to challenge ourselves,” said Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale. “We decided to go more ‘bare bones’ with this EP, meaning minimal production with live, gritty performances. We recorded this EP the week of the Grammys, so the excitement and debauchery you hear through your speakers is very real. We hope all our fans have as much fun with ReAniMate: 2.0 as we did!”
In the meantime, Halestorm are touring across North America, with a variety of headline and festival dates scheduled through early October. From there, the band will cross the Atlantic for a major European arena trek alongside Alter Bridge. Additionally, the band just announced a run of North American dates finishing out the year–see www.halestormrocks.com/tour for up-to-the-minute news and ticket information.
