Halestorm has unleashed a new single called “Back from the Dead.”

The defiant track is the first preview off the next album from Lzzy Hale and company, the follow-up to 2018’s Vicious. The currently untitled effort is set to arrive in 2022.

“‘Back From the Dead’ is about survival, not in a physical sense, even though I know we all have been touched by death especially these last few years,” says Hale. “This song is personal and written from a mental health perspective. I wanted to give myself and the world a hard rock song we could shout out loud as the gates opened again.”

“I was on the edge of this world getting completely lost in oblivion, but even though it was the harder of two choices, I didn’t just let the darkness and depression in my mind dig me an early grave,” she continues. “I didn’t just sit and let it take me. I’ve erased my name from my headstone, so save your prayers, I’m back! I hope this song, as I pass it on to you, reminds YOU of your strength individually and that you are not alone.”

“Back from the Dead” is available now for digital download. It’s also accompanied by a video which takes a much more literal interpretation of the title. You can watch that streaming now on YouTube.

Halestorm will launch a co-headlining tour with Evanescence in November. They’re also headlining their own outing starting in September.
