Halestorm have graced us with another eye-catching video in support of May’s Back From The Dead album. This time around, the hard-rock crew face the judgment of two fed-up priests as bandleader Lzzy Hale enters the confessional in a cavernous cathedral. Things take a turn, though, when it becomes clear she’s there to re-commit to a life of sin and spit in the face of God’s trusted warriors — as she howls in the chorus, “Don’t call me an angel/I’ll always be sinful/Don’t make me evil/But I got my wicked ways.” This all plays out against the gorgeous backdrop of the church’s candlelit pulpit, playing up the Heaven vs. Hell aspect of it all in stunning fashion. “In this eerie confessional, I’m confronting the darkness inside of me, but this isn’t my first time,” Hale explains of the vision expressed in the clip. She continues, “Thanks to the vision of Dustin Haney, who is also responsible for our ‘Back From The Dead’ video, I return to light that darkness that I will never betray.” [via Revolver]

Symphonic/power metal band Crystal Gates are proud to release their second single ‘Moonshine & Sorrow’, a track taken from the band’s upcoming album Torment & Wonder: The Ways Of The Lonely Ones due for release on July 29 via Wormholedeath worldwide. Crystal Gates speaking of the single stated: “Feeling happy is great, but nothing can make us feel more alive than having the perfect tune to carry us through our saddest moments. Add a clear full moon night to that, and the broken heart will glow. ‘Moonshine & Sorrow’ is about longing and feeling sad, while at the same time, being aware of how lucky we are to be alive and to have been touched by love in the first place.”
