Halestorm has unveiled a spooky video for the sexually charged single “Do Not Disturb.” The clip starts out with a young couple who get caught in a storm and find their way to a creepy old inn, where Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale acts as hostess. She also attempts to seduce the couple, while the rest of the staff, played by the other band members, work on ways to kill them.
Hale told Revolver about the song’s sex-drenched lyrics, “It’s based on a true story. I had a lot of fun with a man and a woman a few years ago, on this amazing tour overseas. It was one of these situations where I was going to another country the next day, and I was never going to see this woman again, so it was just this freeing moment: anything goes. The first lyric of the song, ‘I think we should make out,’ comes from my icebreaker.”
Hale added that she grew up listening to a lot of rock music that was about sex, explaining, “I’m also proud to come from a position of power when it comes to sex, because that is a part of my life, and a part of many women’s lives — I mean, we think about it just as much, if not more, as guys do!”
“Do Not Disturb” is taken from Halestorm’s fourth studio LP, Vicious, which came out in July. First single “Uncomfortable” reached Number One on the rock radio airplay chart, making it not only Halestorm’s fourth chart-topper but tying the band with The Pretty Reckless for the most Number One rock singles by a female-fronted act.
Halestorm will kick off the third leg of its tour with In This Moment and New Years Day on November 16th in Norfolk, Virginia.
