"This video was made by Arejay Hale (drummer for Halestorm) I thought this was so cool that He took the time and went out of his way to make this. I had no idea he was behind me filming this show until a few days ago. This was from the Uproar tour we did together over the Summer. "Arejay you sneaky bastard I love you" Anyway you hear the original studio track in and out of this video though Arejay did his best to sync it up for refference.....kind of a rough process to do only because We play the song a bit faster live. But this video will show you exactly how to play the song 'Digital'."
