With their brand new album ‘Vicious’ dropping next Friday, 27th July, US rockers Halestorm have today shared hot new track ‘Do Not Disturb’ from the record.
Although based on a true story, the raunchy song wasn’t originally intended to be a Halestorm track. Frontwoman Lzzy Hale explains, “I don’t just write songs for Halestorm, it’s a primal need of mine. I write songs every day, and I always have a little tablet/notebook in my leather jacket, and this was one of those songs that I was experimenting with. I have an album of about 15 songs that are kind of synth-based, a little darker and I ended up showing it to the guys, like ‘hey check out this weird stuff I’ve been doing’ and they all really liked this song. I think it was Joe who said, ‘I think we could make this one into a rock song’, so we ended up taking out all the weird sounds that I had in it and replacing them with what we do best.”
“It’s a good, dirty sex song,” interjects guitarist Joe Hottinger. Lzzy adds, “I had fun, I like to push the envelope with the sex stuff and it’s very much a part of who I am… and sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll go hand in hand, so I hope you enjoy it!”
“Hand in hand in hand,” quips Joe. “Well, two is better than one, and three is better than two…” closes Lzzy, referencing the song’s lyrics, which rapidly sent fans into melt-down on social media.
