Watch Halestorm Perform Acoustic Version of Record Store Day B-Side "Chemicals"

October 24, 2019

Halestom's "Chemicals" is a standalone song that is not available on any of their albums. Released in April 2019, it is available either as a digital download or as a limited-edition B-side for their 7-inch vinyl "Buzz" for Record Store Day 2019.

So as an added bonus to fans, the band released a video of their acoustic version of "Chemicals", which can be viewed below:

In the summer of 2019, vocalist Lzzy Hale voiced her disregard for whether rap and hip-hop is more popular than rock in mainstream culture, and that rock music is alive and well on its own. “At a rock show, people aren't there just purely because they had nothing better to do on a Saturday," says Lzzy. "They’re not there to show off their cute outfits and take selfies; they’re there because it’s a part of their life,” she said. “And some of these kids primally need to be there to make themselves feel like they belong somewhere. And I think that that’s powerful. So we’re very proud of that.”

She adds, “Like I said, everybody wants to wear the leather jacket and be a rock star, but, really, the truth is that unless you’re underground with us, you’re probably not.”
