Jägermeister Presents Halestorm Tour; Annual Trek Gets Underway November 8th; History-Making Hard Rock Group Also Set for Multiple Headline Dates and Massive World Tour; New Single, "I Miss The Misery," Hits Top 5 at Active Rock; Frontwoman Lzzy Hale Currently Cover-Starring on Revolver's "Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock" Issue

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 09/04/12 -- Atlantic recording group Halestorm has announced plans to headline this year's much anticipated Jägermeister Presents Halestorm Tour. The hard rock festival trek gets underway November 8th at Mobile, Alabama's Soul Kitchen and then continues through mid-December (see attached itinerary). Tickets for the 2012 Jägermeister Presents Halestorm -- which also features special guests In This Moment and Eve To Adam -- will go on sale this Friday, September 7th. For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.halestormrocks.com/tour.

In addition, Halestorm will continue their partnership with JVC on the "Turn Me On: The Road" campaign on this tour and will be capturing behind the scenes footage with their cutting edge ADIXXION action cameras for an in-depth look at one of the hardest working rock bands on the road.

"We are so stoked to be partnering with our friends at Jagermeister for this upcoming tour," said Lzzy Hale of Halestorm. "We've known all of these guys for years and can't wait to throw down with them out on the road! It's going to be great to finally be seeing all of our Halestorm Freaks in all the cities that we have not yet been to this year. Joining us will be our good friends from JVC and our partners in crime, In This Moment and Eve to Adam. Rock it out, people! See you at the shows!"

"I Miss The Misery" -- the latest single from Halestorm's breakthrough new album, "THE STRANGE CASE OF..." -- is currently a top 5 favorite at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide. The Pennsylvania-based group made history earlier this year when the album's electrifying first single, "Love Bites (So Do I)," reached #1 at the format -- the first-ever female-fronted group to top the Active Rock airplay ranking.

Halestorm just wrapped a featured spot on the Carnival of Madness 2012 Tour with Evanescence, during which Evanescence leading lady Amy Lee joined Lzzy Hale onstage each night for a very special performance of Halestorm's song "Break In."

Following the completion of the tour, Halestorm is continuing onward for an additional week's worth of headline shows in Cleveland, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and Lexington, Kentucky. The band's epic 2012 touring schedule has thus far comprised countless headline dates across the country, high profile festival appearances, and support slots alongside Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, and fellow Atlantic recording group Staind. A major European headline tour will begin in late September, with stops slated for Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Russia, and the United Kingdom. Halestorm will also be among the top artists performing at Tokyo's annual Loud Park 12 extravaganza, set for Saturday, October 27th.

As if all that weren't enough, Halestorm will support the one and only Alice Cooper on a pair of eagerly awaited Pacific Northwest concert dates: November 20th at Kennewick, Washington's Toyota Center and November 21st at Garden City, Idaho's Revolution Concert House & Event Center. Finally, the band will celebrate its extraordinary 2012 with a New Year's Eve extravaganza at Baltimore's Baltimore Soundstage on December 31st.

"THE STRANGE CASE OF..." is shaping up as Halestorm's biggest release thus far. The album made a stunning #1 debut on Billboard's "Hard Rock Albums" chart, while also making a top 15 entry onto the overall Billboard 200. In addition, "THE STRANGE CASE OF..." has proven a top 10 success on both the "Rock Albums" and "Alternative Albums" rankings.

Produced by Howard Benson (who previously collaborated with Halestorm on their self-titled 2009 debut), "THE STRANGE CASE OF..." includes such explosive tracks as "Here's To Us," which shot to #1 on iTunes' "Top Rock Songs" chart after being featured in a February 2012 episode of Fox's hit series, Glee. In addition, the album's "Freak Like Me" is featured in a new live video heralding Halestorm's upcoming tour schedule. The clip will made available exclusively to members of the band's official "Eye of the Storm" fan community before being showcased across the myriad Halestorm online platforms.

Along with its popular success, "THE STRANGE CASE OF..." has also drawn critical acclaim, with Billboard praising the collection as "full of chugging riffs, wailing solos, drums that kick like a boot to the gut, and never-out-of-style soft/loud dynamics that lead to massive choruses." What's more, the album has made frontwoman Lzzy Hale an unadulterated rock icon, including her current role as cover star of Revolver's annual "Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock" issue.

Formed by Hale and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has been hailed far and wide as an incendiary force in modern hard rock. "HALESTORM" made a top 5 debut on SoundScan's "Hard Music" chart upon its 2009 release, simultaneously bursting into the top 40 on the comprehensive Billboard 200. The album subsequently sold more than 300,000 copies, and half a million cumulative tracks. Produced by Howard Benson (Daughtry, My Chemical Romance, Flyleaf), the album earned extensive acclaim for its infectious hard rock anthems, sexy hooks, and rough-and-tumble grooves.

"THE STRANGE CASE OF..." follows 2011's "ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP," which saw the band putting their unique stamp on a diverse collection of classic songs, including tracks by Guns N' Roses, The Beatles, Heart, Temple Of The Dog, Skid Row, and Lady Gaga. Halestorm also unleashed their first-ever live CD/DVD, "LIVE IN PHILLY 2010," featuring such favorites from the band's self-titled debut as "It's Not You," "Familiar Taste of Poison," and the rock radio smash "I Get Off."

True road warriors, Halestorm made its bones as a major league hard rock outfit via countless North American gigs alongside such artists as Shinedown, Evanescence, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for My Valentine, and Disturbed. Last year saw the band traveling the country on the blockbuster "Avalanche Tour 2011," joining such hard rock luminaries as Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, and fellow Atlantic recording group Skillet.
