Atlantic recording group Halestorm has announced details of a milestone North American tour showcasing all female-fronted hard rock outfits. The dates – co-headlined by Roadrunner recording group In This Moment – begins April 30th at Houston, TX’s White Oak Music Hall – Lawn and then travels through mid-May (see attached itinerary). Support throughout the trek comes from special guests New Years Day and Stitched Up Heart. The tour will include stops at a number of upcoming festivals and state fairs, including Jacksonville, FL’s Rockville 2018 (April 27th), Fort Lauderdale, FL’s Fort Rock (April 28th), and Charlotte, NC’s Carolina Rebellion (May 5th).

“We’ve been wanting to put together a tour like this for a long time,” says Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale. “We are a few of the hardest working women in rock, so the fact that we are all on the same stage every night is something not to be missed! We support and love each other, and we are representing our genre. This lineup is a beautiful display of what it means to be a strong female example for rock fans everywhere.”
In This Moment’s frontwoman, Maria Brink echoed the sentiment, saying “I am very excited about being a part of such an empowering, divine, female-fronted tour. It is very rare in rock music to have a movement like this and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Lzzy and I are already discussing the possibility of more tours like this in the future. Let the Amazons rise!”
New Years Day frontwoman Ash Costello added “I am beyond thrilled to be sharing the stage with such strong women. Having toured with both Halestorm and In This Moment already, they are such powerful forces, it’s just incredible to be a part of every night. I’m very excited for an all female-fronted tour because, in all my years of touring, this is the very first time I’ll have been a part of one. I can’t wait to walk on stage and feel the support of a crowd that is there to witness women of rock slay for an entire evening. What an evening it will be! You won’t want to miss this tour, I can promise you that.”
“This is our dream lineup,” says Stitched Up Heart frontwoman Mixi. “Every single band on this bill is a huge inspiration to us and unbelievably talented. We are beyond excited for this run!”
Widely acknowledged as one of the most vital and iconic bands in modern hard rock, Halestorm is currently continuing work on their hugely anticipated fourth studio album. In the meantime, the GRAMMY® Award-winning band continues to celebrate the blockbuster success of their acclaimed third album, “INTO THE WILDLIFE. ” That collection made a stunning top 5 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2015 release while also entering Billboard’s “Top Hard Rock Albums” tally at #1 – both marking Halestorm’s highest chart placement to date.
“INTO THE WILDLIFE” – which followed 2012’s blockbuster “THE STRANGE CASE OF…” – is highlighted by the record-breaking smashes, “Apocalyptic” and “Amen,” both of which ascended to #1 at rock radio outlets nationwide, as well as the top 5 Active Rock favorite, “I Am The Fire.” Companion videos and much more can be found at Halestorm’s official YouTube channel, HalestormRocks.
