Halestorm is a rock band from Pennsylvania (US) that signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records, a major recording label, on June 28, 2005. The group has been consistently active, writing and performing original music since 1998 (when the band members were ranging in ages from 10 to 13 years old) and becoming increasingly successful. They have achieved international airplay, having been featured on the Lord Litter show in Germany. The band has been the featured artist, appearing on the covers of Origivation Magazine (October 2006) and Pennsylvania Musician magazine three times (August 1999, March 2000, and February 2003).
The band toured nationally across the United States from January to March 2006 on the Winterfresh Sno-Core Tour with Seether, Shinedown, and Flyleaf. There were about 23 shows in that tour. After that tour the band hit the road again, this time on the Equinox Tour with Shinedown, Trapt, Evans Blue, and Mercy Fall. This lasted until Mid-July 2006.
The band has been writing since and will start recording their debut album in April 08.
On September 5, 2007, the band appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno as part of the Jaywalking segment.
