Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Praises Women In Rock: “There’s No Gender In This Genre”


It has been over a decade since Halestorm released their self-titled debut album in 2009, and Lzzy Hale couldn’t be happier with how the rocky landscape has changed during this time.

“It’s a bit like day and night,” the singer said in an interview with Result. “It’s completely reversed. It used to be that not only was I the only girl in a band on stage, but I was the only girl on tour, and now that’s not the case anymore. At any festival, we are everywhere. Women are taking over rock festivals these days, and I’m not the only one who’s a musician, but there are also female lighting designers, tour managers, engineers and roadies. It’s wonderful to see.

“And, obviously, in the audience, it was completely reversed,” she continued. “Just a few years ago the majority of people in rock crowds were guys, and now you see all these beautiful women owning this genre – owning this kind of hard rock. It proves once and for all, even if we’ve been talking about it for ages, that this kind of hard rock is asexual. It’s not something us girls got into because we had a boyfriend who loved metal. It is intrinsically who we are.

Halestorm recently released their fifth studio album Back from the dead and tour with Stone Temple Pilots and Mammoth WVH.
