Atlantic recording group Halestorm has slated an epic touring schedule in support of their chart-topping new album, The Strange Case Of... The new dates comprise a wide range of shows, including a U.S. headline tour, high profile festival appearances, a much-anticipated European trek, and a series of support slots alongside Avenged Sevenfold (see dates below).

Meanwhile, Halestorm is currently lighting it up nightly on a major U.S. tour alongside Godsmack and Staind. The "Mass Chaos 2012" tour continues through a May 16 finale at Manchester, New Hampshire's Verizon Wireless Arena.

Produced by Howard Benson (Pretty Boy Floyd, P.O.D.), The Strange Case Of... has drawn critical acclaim, with Billboard praising the collection as "full of chugging riffs, wailing solos, drums that kick like a boot to the gut, and never-out-of-style soft/loud dynamics that lead to massive choruses."

Formed by frontwoman Lzzy Hale and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has been hailed far and wide as an incendiary force in modern hard rock. Halestorm made a top 5 debut on SoundScan's "Hard Music" chart upon its 2009 release, simultaneously bursting into the top 40 on the comprehensive Billboard 200. The album subsequently sold more than 300,000 copies, and half a million cumulative tracks.
