Halestorm Covers “Hunger Strike” at the 2015 AP Music Awards
Grammy Award winning rockers, Halestorm, provided fans with the highlight of the night during the 2nd Annual Alternative Press Music Awards this past Wednesday, collaborating with Slipknot/Stone Sour front-man, Corey Taylor, and the Contemporary Youth Orchestra for a beautifully respectful cover of the rock classic “Hunger Strike”, which can be viewed below. Filmed at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, OH- home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame- the Alternative Press Music Awards recognizes those outstanding modern music acts through the presentation of 17 awards, including the categories of Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Breakthrough Band, and more.
Halestorm’s masterful performance at the 2nd Annual AP Awards comes in support of their latest studio album, Into the Wild Life, which was released this last April courtesy of Atlantic Records. Into the Wild Life debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, Top Alternative Album chart, and also atop the Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart, and also plays host to the No.1 singles “Apocalyptic” and “Amen”.
During this one-off performance, Pearl Artist, Arejay Hale, was seen slamming away on a set of Pearl’s highly proven Reference Series drums, finished in the classic Piano Black lacquer and centered by a matching 14x6.5 Reference Series snare drum. More information on Arejay Hale, including specs on his current Crystal Beat tour kit, can be found here.
