Last year GRAMMY Award-nominated, multi-platinum alternative pop maverick HALSEY was hailed by Billboard Magazine, Forbes and MTV as “the voice of her generation.” Say that to her face, though, and she’d probably roll her eyes and tell you to f*** right off, for it was just a couple of years ago that Halsey was still Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, a New Jersey teen who’d escaped her chaotic family life and suburban existence for New York, writing poetry, and scrounging money for concerts and her next slice of pizza. Halsey went from putting songs on SoundCloud to having her first full length album, BADLANDS, certified platinum by the RIAA within one year of its release, with five Gold singles and more than 2 billion streams.

It arrives with a significant milestone for the band whom released their major label debut S.C.I.E.N.C.E. 1997, 20 years earlier.“The fact that so many people are willing to come on this weird ride with us is really humbling.
