Atlantic recording group Halestorm has made rock history once more as their scintillating new single, "Apocalyptic," ascends to #1 at Active Rock radio outlets – the first time a female-fronted band has scored chart-topping hits at the format three times and to have #1 songs from two consecutive albums. "INTO THE WILD LIFE" – the GRAMMY® Award-winning hard rock band's long awaited third studio album and follow-up to 2012's blockbuster "THE STRANGE CASE OF…" – arrives everywhere on April 14th.

"'INTO THE WILD LIFE' is not a departure," says Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale. "It's an invitation to all things Halestorm. Lyrically and musically, we explored everything that makes us tick. We set a new standard for this record and gave ourselves no choice other than to be unapologetically ourselves in every way. Peel away at the onion that is our third record if you dare and let us drag you deeper into our world."

Released in 2012, "THE STRANGE CASE OF…" debuted at #1 onBillboard's "Hard Rock Albums" chart while also making a top 15 entry onto the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200. The album's exceptional success was fueled in large part by the singles, "I Miss The Misery," "Love Bites (So Do I)" and "Freak Like Me," the latter two which made history by ascending to #1 at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide, marking Halestorm as the first-ever female-fronted group to top the format's airplay ranking. As if that weren't enough, "Love Bites (So Do I)" went on to earn the band their first-ever GRAMMY® for "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" at 2013's 55th annual event.
