After opening for Halestorm, The Warning will be going home with one more instrument than they started with.

The rising rock trio — which is made up of sisters Dany, Pau and Ale — has been supporting the “I Miss the Misery” outfit on their summer tour. During Tuesday’s show in Irving, Texas, Lzzy Hale made a surprise appearance during The Warning’s set to give Dany a brand new guitar.

In an Instagram post, Dany shared a video of the moment when Hale surprised her with the hard-rocking gift alongside the caption, “I cannot even begin to explain what this means to me.”

“You are my biggest inspiration and I can’t believe I get to share this tour and these moments with you,” Dany added of Lzzy.

Hale then responded in the post’s comments, writing, “Darling, I cannot even tell you how long I’ve been waiting for someone to ignite me with passion and inspiration on the guitar. You have done that for me.”

The “Freak Like Me” singer also shared that the gift was part of her way to “pay it forward” after ex-Shinedown guitarist Jasin Todd had done the same thing for her back in 2005.

“You and your sisters are going to take over the world,” Hale wrote to Dany. “Rock is in very good hands.”

“Don’t let anyone take your crow or try to make you into anything you’re not,” she continued. “Keep your eyes up and your heart ablaze. You are a bright light in such a dark and crazy world.”

The Warning’s summer tour with Halestorm concludes August 12 in Portsmouth, Virginia. The bill also includes The Pretty Reckless and Lilith Czar on select dates.
