HHM: Seeing as this is Kristen’s first tour with Flyleaf what are some differences you’ve noticed in your live show?
Hartmann: No one really knows who she is so it’s kind of like fans are seeing us for the first time again – it’s like they’re examining us and analyzing it in their head “Do I like this? Do I hate this?” but by the end of the night people are really excited and into the show by the time we start playing songs like “All Around Me” and “I’m So Sick” I think that’s been the biggest difference: they’re our fans but it’s kind of like they’re becoming our fans over again.
HHM: Were there any challenges getting in sync with the new lineup?
Hartmann: Well we didn’t practice very much before this tour and prior to it we had only played one show. It was like becoming a band again; trying to meld together – I think touring is going to be the best thing for that and it’s just getting better and better.
HHM: How did you guys decide on Kristen as your new singer? Can you tell me a little about the process?
Hartmann: Once Lacey told us she was going to step down we kind of secretly reached out to potential singers that we liked and auditioned a couple; Kristen ended up being a really great fit.
I also updated the tour dates section and put up the official videos from this album cycle for download. Those include New Horizons, Call You Out and the live performance of Fire Fire from their first show with Kristen. Enjoy!
In an exclusive interview with New Jersey Newsroom, Flyleaf Guitarist Jared Hartmann sat down to discuss a wide range of topics regarding the band’s new singer, their current tour, fan response so far and future plans for new music.
Hartmann started off the interview updating fans on the recent changes and Flyleaf’s current events, “Big news, we have a new singer Kristen. This is our first tour together so we’re trying to figure things out and become a band. It’s the first time we actually toured in two and a half years. So it’s good to be back out on the road and we get to see our fans. That’s been really exciting, it’s been a great experience getting back out.”
The reality of continuing without Sturm presented no easy hurdle since she played an integral role in the band’s sound and success.
For Flyleaf fans, rest assured, the focus isn’t on replicating, replacing or forgetting about Sturm’s contribution. Flyleaf’s approach represents a pure honesty in adding on to the legacy Sturm helped establish.
New vocalist Kristen May keeps the legacy alive by adding her own incredible style to Flyleaf’s catalog as she carves her own path with a distinctive combination of brash power and delicacy.
Hartmann describes the process of working with May as a way of returning to their roots, “We’re reinventing ourselves right now. With Kristen joining the band, it’s a new element. We’re really excited about the future.”
With May on board, Hartmann expects this tour to serve as a preview for what the future holds for curious fans, “We did our first show with her in October, we did one little show and video taped it so the fans could get a taste of what we were working on.”
