Today, Finland’s multi-Platinum cello-rockers Apocalyptica release their brand-new track and music video, “Talk To Me” featuring Lzzy Hale of Halestorm(Silver Lining Music). You can check out the music video HERE; the track, which will be available exclusively in digital form can be accessed HERE.
The epic, storming power-metallic grooves of “Talk To Me” are the result of much mutual admiration and desire between both parties to create together. With both bands sharing an established history of camaraderie and similarities with regards to musical taste, a collaboration was always going to happen and at a time when everyone could do with some fresh, new, huge, epic, anthemic music, both bands agreed it was the appropriate moment to merge talents and release the track.
“After years of friendship we are more than happy to release a song together with the amazing Lzzy of Halestorm!”comments Apocalyptica’s Eicca Toppinen, “This song has been in our minds for quite some time and we have been waiting for the right moment to finish it, and getting Lzzy to join us and perform in her outstanding way was a dream come true! We want to thank Lzzy and the whole Halestorm team for their great work and friendship.”
Produced by Howard Benson at West Valley Recording Studios in Woodland Hills, California (with Benson also playing keyboards), and mixed by Benson alongside Joe Rickard, Hale’s lustrous vocals give Apocalyptica’s orchestral arrangement a rich dimension, and Lzzy was delighted the two old friends could finally merge talents.
“Apocalyptica and I have for years talked about doing something together, and the last time I saw Eicca Toppinen, in Helsinki, Finland during the 2019 Tuska Festival, he brought up the idea that we finally make that talk a reality. I’m so excited for the world to hear this song! Thank you so much to the entire Apocalyptica camp for being a part of our family all these years and for including me in this project!”
