The Strange Case Of... is the second full-length studio album by the rock band Halestorm, released on April 10, 2012. The album was produced by Howard Benson, who also produced the band's self-titled[1] debut album. The first single and video from the album "Love Bites (So Do I)" won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance.[2] The song "Here's to Us" was performed on the US television show, Glee, with clean lyrics. Four of the album's songs were previously released[3] on the sneak-preview EP Hello, It's Mz. Hyde. A deluxe edition of the album was also released containing three bonus tracks. A different version of the song "Here's to Us" featuring multiple guests including Slash was included on the reissue version of the standard and deluxe version of the album in 2013. In interviews about the album, Hale noted that the album was heavier than their previous album, but was significantly closer to the sound of them live.[1]

The album debuted at No. 7 on Top Rock Albums and No. 15 on the Billboard 200, selling 24,000 copies in its first week.[4] It has sold 387,000 copies in the US as of April 2015.[5] And was certified Gold (500,000 units) by the RIAA as of March 8, 2016.[6]
