Halestorm was nominated for a Grammy Award on Wednesday night (December 5th) for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance, for the song "Love Bites (So Do I)." Singer and guitarist Lzzy Hale told us that the band was in its natural state -- playing live onstage -- when they got the news: "It was just in time for the piano ballad, so I'm just kind of sitting by myself and Joe (Hottinger, guitar) runs across the stage, he's like, 'We got nominated for a Grammy!' And I'm like, I mean, I must have had at least 30 seconds of just pure, like, shock on my face (laughs). 'Really? Are you serious?' I still can't wipe this stupid grin off my face, I'll tell you that. But it was a very cool moment for all of us."
Halestorm is up against Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Lamb Of God, Marilyn Manson and Megadeth in the category.
"Love Bites" is taken from Halestorm's second album, The Strange Case Of . . .
The song hit Number One, making Halestorm the first female-fronted act in history to top the Active Rock chart.
The band is currently headlining the Jagermeister Presents Tour, which pulls into South Bend, Indiana on Friday night (December 7th).
Halestorm will close out a very successful 2012 with three special holiday performances billed as "An Evening With" the band. The shows will take place on December 27th at Philadelphia's Electric Factory, December 29th at Montclair, New Jersey's Wellmont Theater and December 31st at Soundstage in Baltimore.
