Halestorm Have Earned Their First Platinum Album In The United States


Hard rock outfit Halestorm have just earned their first platinum album in the United States. The group’s 2012 sophomore album “The Strange Case Of…” has just been certified by the RIAA as their first full-length offering to hit that milestone. It is however not the group’s first platinum award, as their second single from that outing, “I Miss The Misery“, went platinum back in 2019. That album’s fourth single “Here’s To Us” went gold in 2018.

Outside of those awards, the band’s 2009 self-titled debut album went gold in 2016 with its single “I Get Off” following in 2017.
