Halestorm Unveils New Single “The Steeple” and Announces New Album

Halestorm made their explosive comeback in 2021 with the powerful ‘Back From the Dead’. Now they’ve released a new single, “The Steeple”, and announced their upcoming fifth album, also titled Back from the dead.

Check out the song and follow its lyrics below.

Back from the dead follows Halestorm’s record in 2018 Vicious, which earned them their second Grammy nomination with lead single “Uncomfortable” for Best Hard Rock Performance.

“We started writing this album about three months BCE (pre-COVID),” singer Lzzy Hale said of the album in a press release. “Once we went into lockdown and couldn’t perform and tour, I fell into a dark place and kind of an identity crisis. This album is the story of me coming out of this abyss. It is a journey of navigating sanity, debauchery, survival, redemption, rediscovery and maintaining faith in humanity.”

The disc will be available May 6 via Atlantic Records. Pre-order/save it here now and check out the album art and track listing below the song.

You might notice that the last track on the album is titled “Raise Your Horns,” and that might sound familiar. In 2018, after the tragic death of Huntress singer Jill Janus, Hale launched a mental health awareness campaign on Twitter, where she made “Raise Your Horns” a hashtag and challenged her followers who had mental health issues from sharing a photo of themselves with the label.

“The more of us out there, the less alone we’ll feel and we’ll get one step closer to fighting mental health stigma!” wrote the singer. She has since used the tag on many of her posts – and now it will be a permanent part of their song catalog as well.

Halestorm just wrapped up a tour with Evanescence and unfortunately had to postpone their European tour, which would have taken place later this month. Their next scheduled performance is at the 2022 Welcome to Rockville Festival in Daytona, Florida.

Lyrics of Halestorm, “The Bell Tower”

It stopped raining in my head today
I finally feel myself again
Redemption is finally here
Back to where it all began
Where God and the Devil shake hands

This is my kingdom
This is my cathedral
This is my castle
And these are my people
This is my armor
It’s my anchor
It’s been a long road from hell to the steeple
‘Cause it’s the church and it’s my people

A choir sings in my heart today (Whoa)
Like a thousand angels breaking the silent parade
To those I call mine
I’m back where I belong
To where God and the devil call home

This is my kingdom
This is my cathedral
This is my castle
And these are my people
This is my armor
It’s my anchor
It’s been a long road from hell to the steeple
‘Cause it’s the church and it’s my people

This is my kingdom
This is my cathedral
This is my castle
And these are my people
This is my armor
It’s my anchor
It’s been a long road from hell to the steeple

This is our church
you are my people
This is our church
This is our steeple
This is our church
you are my people
This is our church
This is my steeple
This is my steeple
This is my church
This is my steeple
