Ahead of their summer co-headlining tour, Halestorm and I Prevail have joined forces for a new song, “can u see me in the dark?” The moody track features contributions from both bands. Stream the official lyric video below.

This summer Halestorm and I Prevail are hitting the road together along with very special guests Hollywood Undead and Fit For a King. The trek kicks off on July 9 in Raleigh, North Carolina at the Coastal Credit Union Music Park and runs through August 17 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Bakkt Theater inside Planet Hollywood Casino & Resort.

“Freaks, we are so proud to announce that we are joining forces with I Prevail,” says Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale. “This isn’t your typical summer tour. This is two worlds colliding under one haven for our collective armies. And bringing you a show unlike any we’ve done before! We have a lot of surprises in store, so get your tickets now for an experience none of us will forget!”

“We’re thrilled to join forces with Halestorm this summer,” states I Prevail’s Eric Vanlerberghe. “Touring with Halestorm is long overdue, as we admire their talent, energy, and dedication to rock music, and are thrilled to finally see it happen. This is going to be one of the best tours of the summer and one of the best we’ve ever done.”

Halestorm have partnered with mental health organization Sound Mind Live to engage fans to pledge support that will provide free-to-the-community mental health programming across the country for fans and the broader community.

Having amassed over 2.5 Billion streams globally, the Grammy-Award winning band Halestorm has grown from a childhood dream of siblings Lzzy and Arejay Hale into one of the most celebrated rock bands of the last two decades.  Most recently, the band released Back From The Dead, their fifth full-length studio album which has tallied over 100 Million streams worldwide. Rolling Stonecalled the title track “a biting but cathartic howler about overcoming all obstacles,” and that song as well, as “The Steeple,” marked their fifth and sixth number ones at rock radio, respectively. Associated Press said the album “will definitely be in the running for best hard rock/metal album of the year.”

In the fall, Halestorm are teaming up with Evanescence for a brief run across Canada. The trek kicks off on October 15 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia and wraps up on October 29 at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario. The Warning will serve as special guests for the entire trek.

Halestorm leader Lzzy Hale recently wrapped up a string of dates fronting Skid Row. Back in March, Skid Row and vocalist Erik Grönwall announce that they were parting ways. The decision is a joint one that was reach amicably. The group also confirmed that Halestorm singer, guitarist and “longtime friend” Lzzy Hale would be taking over vocal duties for the band’s previously scheduled tour dates this spring.

“I’m stepping in for a few dates as the lead singer of Skid Row,” Lzzy exclaimed. “What an honor to call them my friends and a privilege to be sharing the stage with them! Erik, I wish you all the magic on your next adventure. Now, which leather pants to wear?!”

Back in 2011, Halestorm released an EP of cover songs, ReAniMate: The CoVeRs eP. Included in the effort was a version of Skid Row’s hallmark song, “Slave to the Grind.” The band performed a raucous live version on the ShipRocked Cruise in 2020.

Their previous album, Vicious, earned the band their second Grammy nomination, for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song “Uncomfortable,” the band’s fourth #1 at rock radio, and led Loudwire to name Halestorm “Rock Artist of the Decade” in 2019.  Fronted by the incomparable Lzzy Hale with drummer Arejay Hale, guitarist Joe Hottinger, and bass player Josh Smith, Halestorm’s music has earned multiple Platinum and Gold Certifications from the RIAA, and the band has earned a reputation as a powerful live music force, headlining sold-out shows and topping festival bills around the world, and sharing the stage with icons including Heaven & Hell, Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, and Judas Priest. Additionally, Lzzy was named the first female brand ambassador for Gibson and served as host of AXS TV’s “A Year in Music.”

I Prevail have established themselves as the forerunners of the genre in the 21st century. Their latest release TRUE POWER, once again produced by Tyler Smyth, features the sort of stadium-sized riffs that will rattle your teeth loose from your gums and unforgettable, supremely catchy melodies that will camp out in your brain for weeks at a time. The band also alternately mixes screamed vocals that sound as though they crawled from the depths of hell with soaring, emotional vocals and heartfelt, intimate lyrics that go so deep, they hit marrow. The end result is an album that resonates with the listener in the most personal way. Rising to an arena level and receiving two Grammy nominations — Best Rock Album for Trauma and Best Metal Performance for crushing lead single “Bow Down” — I Prevail proved that they were built to last.

To date, they’ve racked up more than 4.1 billion global streams, are approaching 716 million YouTube views, and saw both “Hurricane” and “Bad Things” singles top Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart in 2020 and 2022 respectively. A number of their singles and album Lifelines have now been certified Gold and Platinum, and they have been praised by press far and wide, including Forbes, Billboard, The Hollywood Reporter, and NPR. I Prevail have affirmed their position among the genre’s elite.

Formed in 2005, Hollywood Undead inched towards mainstream dominance under the radar with unprecedented success for a modern band. Preceding the current playlist-hopping genre-less boom, they defied stylistic boundaries from day one integrating rap, rock, and electronic. The band will be heading back out on the road in the Fall of 2023 with hip hop legend Tech N9ne co-head lining the HOLLYWOOD & N9NE Tour in support of their 8th studio album, Hotel Kalifornia.

Fit For A King’s musical style is rooted in metal and hardcore and uplifted by hypnotic hooks. Following the breakout LP Creation/Destruction [2013], they earned four consecutive Top 5 debuts on the Top Hard Rock Albums Chart with Sla
