Though the summer might be in the throes of making us melt, some of the tour announcements are even hotter. Let’s take this one by Halestorm and In This Moment for instance. Check out the full press release and dates beneath the poster below.
The Press Release:
Grammy-winning hard rock band Halestorm and Atlantic/Roadrunner band In This Moment announced today a third leg of their all-female fronted tour, with New Year’s Day supporting. The new dates begin November 16thin Norfolk, VA, and run through December 16th, wrapping in St. Petersburg, FL.
“You asked for it, and now you’re gonna get it,” said Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale. “I’m so excited to announce the third leg with my empowering, beautifully Vicious women! Three tours and we don’t show any signs of slowing! We are joined by our friends in In This Moment and New Years Day starting in November! Get your tickets now because you don’t want to miss this!”
“We are so beyond excited to be announcing the third leg of such an empowering and beautiful tour,” said Maria Brink of In This Moment. “We knew after completing the first leg that this was something people were going to be paying attention to, and it felt strong, it felt powerful, and it felt liberating. I am so excited to see everybody at the upcoming shows!”
“Touring with Maria and Lzzy has been, by far, the best touring experience I’ve ever had,” said Ash Costello of New Years Day. “I am lifted up and supported by the amazing women of this tour, and everyone feels as if they are family who are rooting for each other to kill it every single night. The positivity is incredible on a personal level. Not to mention, the shows are absolutely ferocious. I am honored to be on stage with these incredible women of metal and rock once again! And honestly, I hope there’s no end in sight!”
Tickets go on-sale this Friday, July 27th, the release day of Halestorm’s fourth album, Vicious, now available for pre-order here: https://Atlantic.lnk.to/ViciousPR. Also this Friday, all three bands kick off the second leg of the tour at Kansas City, MO’s Silverstein Eye Centers Arena.
On Friday, Halestorm released “Do Not Disturb,” the third song to be unveiled from Vicious.The first single from the album, “Uncomfortable,” is currently top 10 at active rock radio. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Rush), Vicious was recorded earlier this year at Nashville, TN’s Rock Falcon recording studio.
In This Moment’s latest album RITUAL arrived in July 2017 on the back of the Top 10 single “Oh Lord.” The album landed at #1 on the Hard Music Chart, #3 on the Rock Chart, #9 on the Top Current Albums Chart, #10 on the Digital Albums Chart, and #23 on the Top 200. The critically lauded album also included the hit singles “Roots” and “Black Wedding,” the latter featuring an assist from Judas Priest’s Rob Halford. Vocalist Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth recently recorded a brand new song, “The Calling,” which coincides with DARK NIGHTS: METAL DELUXE EDITION. Listen here.
The band also made a stunning top 10 chart debut with 2015’s acclaimed BLACK WIDOW. It was the band’s fifth full-length release and arrived at #8 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200, while also entering Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” tally at #3. BLACK WIDOW featured a string of rock radio hits, including “Sick Like Me,” “Big Bad Wolf,” “Sex Metal Barbie,” and “The Fighter.” Official companion videos – all co-directed by Brink – are streaming at the band’s official YouTube channel. Furthermore, In This Moment’s 2012 album, BLOOD, has been certified Gold by the RIAA, as have both singles “Blood” and “Whore.” A remarkable accomplishment, the companion music video for “Blood” has been viewed over 27 million times.
Known worldwide for their dramatic and cinematic live performances, In This Moment have received rapturous praise in a range of national outlets. “One of the most unique, diverse and theatrical live acts you could witness in heavy music today,” raved Loudwire. “Not only are they a powerhouse sonically but visually they are beyond captivating… the production, sound and overall professional level of their concert experience has been elevated.”
Formed in Orange County, Calif. by Ashley Costello, New Years Day shook the scene with their Century Media debut, Victim to Villain, in 2013 featuring their breakout single “Angel Eyes.” The five-piece later cemented their place in the heavy music landscape with theirEpidemic EP and critically-acclaimed Malevolence full-length in 2015, clocking more than 20 million views on YouTube. The band has since become the most visually-captivating group in modern rock, playing for millions of fans around the world, sharing the stage with Ozzy Osbourne, Nine Inch Nails and Five Finger Death Punch while also headlining the longest-running touring festival in 2017. As new challenges and new worlds beckon, the band released Diary of a Creep in January to pay tribute to the artists who shaped them thus far –stream their cover of Garbage’s “Only Happy When It Rains ft. Lzzy Hale” now.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey I don’t think that I need to sell you any more on this kind of tour since it brings together three exciting bands that are all going to bring something special to the musical table at the end of the day. Speaking frankly, I’ve enjoyed all three of these bands for a few years now and look forward to catching the show when they land in my town around November. I have to see what I am going for the Thanksgiving holiday first because I might not even be in town. Then all of you are going to have to let me know how a show was for a change. How do you like those apples? Okay I am kidding with you but you can tell me down below in the comments what your thoughts are about this tour. I’d love to hear from you but you know that’s true already since I’ve closed with that statement before quite a few times. I hope that I will be in town because this is one of those perfect touring packages where all the acts make sense together. That is not a normal occurrence for sure. Bring on those comments and I will see you next time. Now its onto the everything else on my list.
