Halestorm is an American hard rock band from Red Lion, Pennsylvania, consisting of lead vocalist and guitarist Lzzy Hale, her brother drummer and percussionist Arejay Hale, guitarist Joe Hottinger, and bassist Josh Smith. The group's self-titled debut album was released on April 28, 2009, through Atlantic Records. Their second album The Strange Case Of... was released on April 10, 2012. Its lead single "Love Bites (So Do I)" from that album won their first Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance on February 10, 2013.

Halestorm toured with Evanescence for the Carnival of Madness tour in 2012. On August 18th when they performed at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas, Amy Lee joined Lzzy on stage to duet for Break In. They have since performed it several times together.

Lzzy provided the vocals on the studio version of Lindsey Stirling's song, Shatter Me, released as the lead single from Lindsey's album of the same name in 2014. When Lindsey toured with Evanescence in Summer 2018, Amy provided the live vocals during the tour.

In a 2017 interview with Billboard, Lzzy recalls how hearing Evanescence on the radio proved that women can rock:

Vin1.jpg She showed me an open door — no pun intended — because up until she blew up the radio, I was largely the only female rocker in my area. A lot of industry folks just didn’t believe a girl rock band could get on radio. So when Amy proved them all wrong, it showed everyone that I wasn’t crazy for pursuing this career.[1] Vin2.jpg

In October 2019, Lzzy Hale posted a cryptic Instagram picture hinting at some of collaboration with Amy Lee.[2] This later turned out to be a studio version of the Break In collaboration, which would be included on Halestorm's EP called Reimagined. The song was released as the EP's lead single on July 31, 2020.

On August 14, 2020, Evanescence's single Use My Voice was released that features guest vocals of Lzzy Hale and several other female vocalists.[3]

On May 10, 2021, Evanescence and Halestorm announced a joint tour together in the U.S. for Fall 2021.[4] During this tour, they duetted on Break In and played a cover of Linkin Park's song, Heavy.

On April 23, 2024, Evanescence and Halestorm announced a co-headline Canadian tour that starts October 15 in Vancouver and runs through October 29 in London, Ontario.[5]
