Lzzy Hale of Halestorm is just the kind of female badass that rock 'n' roll has been yearning for. She and her band mates already considerably heated up hard rock with their self-titled debut in 2009. Now, while the world anticipates their next full-length, the band has dropped an incendiary EP of covers entitled, ReAnimate: The Covers. They reinterpret classics from Skid Row, Guns N' Roses, Heart, Temple of the Dog, The Beatles, and even Lady Gaga, infusing a whole hell of a lot of attitude in the process.
However, the most intriguing aspect of the covers EP is that it's actually inspired Halestorm in their own writing. Lzzy exclaims, "There's nothing like performing these songs because we automatically think, 'How do we get an original song to make us feel like that?' It pushed us because I didn't have any idea that I could pull off a song like 'Slave to the Grind.' Or take a song like "Out Ta Get Me," it made me think we really need a song that plays a million miles a minute so I can go to my highest note that I didn't even know I could hit! It's definitely been inspiring us."
