The Dude of the 106.5 KWHL radio station conducted an interview with Pennsylvanian rockers HALESTORM before their August 23 concert at the Alaska State Fair in Palmer. You can now watch the chat below.

HALESTORM will release a new EP called “ReAniMate 2.0: The CoVerRs eP” on October 15. The six-song EP follows up 2011’s “ReAniMate”, which featured the band’s renditions of songs by SKID ROW, GUNS N’ ROSES, LADY GAGA and THE BEATLES. The new collection will feature tracks originally written and recorded by JUDAS PRIEST, DAFT PUNK, AC/DC, PAT BENATAR, FLEETWOOD MAC and MARILYN MANSON.

The Pulse Of Radio asked Lzzy Hale if the band had ever been denied permission to record a song for one of these EPs. “We were denied after the fact, actually, on the last cover EP,” she said. “We thought we had gotten approval for ‘Out Ta Get Me’ by GUNS N’ ROSES, and apparently everybody had approved it but Axl [Rose] — but nobody told him. So we had recorded it, we released it, and then he found out and I guess — what was the stipulation? We, like, could do it digitally but not physically, which I thought was kind of weird.”

Hale said about the new EP, “Like our first ‘ReAniMate’ EP, the songs included here are a collection of both our favorite songs and songs to challenge ourselves. We decided to go more ‘bare bones’ with this EP, meaning minimal production with live, gritty performances. We recorded this EP the week of the Grammys, so the excitement and debauchery you hear through your speakers is very real.”

HALESTORM won the Grammy Award for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” for the track “Love Bites (So Do I)”, from the band’s second album, “The Strange Case Of…”

The latest single from the 2012 release is “Here’s To Us”, which was also featured on a February 2012 episode of “Glee”.

HALESTORM is currently on a North American tour that ends in early October, after which the band will head to Europe. But they’ll be back in late November for one more round of North American shows to finish out the year.

“She Said”, the first video from SUPERMANIC, the Los Angeles-based industrial rock band led by Grammy Award-nominated guitarist Sin Quirin (MINISTRY, REVCO, LORDS OF ACID) and singer and music producer Kallaghan (CHARLES MASSABO), can be seen below. The group is currently working on its first album for a tentative 2014 release.

“She Said” was produced by Charles Massabo and features drums by Devin Sack Saqq.

In a recent interview with Sic Asylum, Sin stated about SUPERMANIC: “Kal and I met about a year ago at NAMM. We had a mutual friend that introduced us, over the course of the year we kept in touch and when I got home from the MINISTRY tour we really started talking about starting this project. We really hit it off and had long talks about what it is we really wanted to accomplish. We were very careful to talk about every detail with each other, even who we wanted in the band. We wanted to make sure that we go the right people involved and not get players who later on we would regret bringing on.

“We went into it wanting to start a rock band. Obviously, I come from the industrial side so it would be inevitable to get some electronics in there, but at the end of the day we wanted to do some of these songs with an acoustic guitar and the song still be very strong.

“We definitely are building the band on delivering strong and heavy rock songs, and though the industrial influences may be there, I didn’t want it to be compared to anything else I have ever done.

“As you know, I am heavily influenced by bands from the ’60s and ’70s and really wanted to draw from those influences, and Kal was really into writing catchy/hooky kind of melodies, so that became the foundation for the band.

“We have a handful of material so far and the ranges of the songs will blow you away.

Kal has such a great voice and I am not kidding when I say it is one of the best set of vocals I have heard in a long time. You are going to really hear that as well when we start slowly releasing some more material. Kal just has such a strong voice that, to me, he is right up there with some of the cats you hear on the radio.”

SHADOWS FALL drummer Jason Bittner says that HALESTORM winning a Grammy Award for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” proves that “shit is rotten in the music business” and is more upsetting than METALLICA losing the nod in the same category to JETHRO TULL more than 20 years ago.
