“We’re excited to release our first single, ‘Set Me on Fire’ today and we can’t wait for people to hear it,” May says of the song, which will impact radio on July 5. “It’s about the passion we feel when we first fall in love and our emotions are running high, along with our thirst for this great life and all it has to offer. There is so much beauty, excitement, and hope in this world, and when we collide with one another and fall in love, magic happens.

Flyleaf to Release 4th Studio Album This Fall After Signing Label Deal - Leave a comment

kristenmay_1

Flyleaf are getting a fresh start with their fourth studio album, having just announced they’ve signed to Loud & Proud Records to release the effort. The band underwent a major change after issuing their 2012 disc, ‘New Horizons,’ as longtime vocalist Lacey Sturm left the group with Kristen May taking over as frontwoman.

May had the chance to prove herself right out of the gate, as the transition took place pretty much coinciding with the release of the ‘New Horizons’ album. Also aiding in the transition was the band issuing a 2013 EP titled ‘Who We Are’ that allowed fans to get used to May as the band’s new vocalist.

Now the group is back in the studio planning to release their fourth full-length effort in September with Loud & Proud’s backing. Guitarist Sameer Bhatacharya says, “Flyleaf is privileged and thankful to be joining forces with Loud & Proud. There is something very special in this new Flyleaf album that resonates in our hearts. We’re excited for the new release and our upcoming tours this fall.”

May added, “I’m so happy to be partners with Loud & Proud. This will be a good team for us. Loud & Proud gives us the freedom creatively to grow and stay true to who we are while having the support of an inspired team. We can’t wait for the journey ahead.”

Flyleaf got a head start on the new record back in January when they started a Pledge Music campaign for the upcoming disc and by Feb. 2 the album was fully funded. The group has begun working on the disc with producer Don Gilmore and a number of song titles have already been revealed.

Tracks include ‘Set Me on Fire,’ ‘Magnetic,’ ‘City Kids,’ ‘Marionette,’ ‘Thread’ and ‘Well of Lies.’ Fans can check out a live performance of ‘City Kids’ in the concert video below. Those wishing to pre-order the new album and find VIP packages for the group’s fall tour may do so by visiting the PledgeMusic site. Look for the band to release their next single in July with dates for the fall tour being revealed soon.







Remembering Rich - Leave a comment

Today is the two year anniversary of the day the world lost Rich Caldwell. We should all take few moments to remember him, his impact on our lives and ears, and keep him and his beautiful family in our thoughts. Even if you didn’t get the chance to know Rich personally, if you had been to a Flyleaf concert before 2012, you could hear so clearly through the band’s live show Rich’s undeniable talent, and his passion for what he did. So a lot of people, whether they knew it at the time or not, were moved by his work with Flyleaf.

Texan alt-rockers Flyleaf have announced a new album and a pledge campaign.

Flyleaf have announced that they are set to record their new album via Pledge Music. The platinum-selling band are heading back into the studio on April 22, to record their as-yet-untitled fourth album with Linkin Park/Good Charlotte producer Don Gilmore. It will be their first full-length album recorded with new singer (and ex-Vedera frontwoman) Kristen May, who made her debut on last year’s Who We Are EP. Kristen replaced longstanding Flyleaf vocalist Lacey Sturm in 2012, after she amicably parted ways with the band.

For more information head or to make a pledge make sure you head here.

If you pledge to pre-order the new record you will receive access to downloads, behind the scenes videos, tracks & more!

The album is scheduled for release late summer/early fall 2014.

Nothing we didn’t already know, but it’s good to see bigger outlets picking up on these things!

In addition that little article, I’ve uploaded some videos to the video section of all of the 4 LiveStream performances that Flyleaf did, and the full download of entire thing with all of the questions/answers/performances/etc. I also added some acoustic videos that include Something Better, All Around Me, and Call You Out from a radio performance at The Buzz. Enjoy! :]







Flyleaf’s Kristen May: Ready to Begin (Again) - Leave a comment

Congratulations on the WE LOVE Award. You guys won that one handily. How does it feel that Flyleaf, with just an EP, still has such a command of the audience out there?

I just think is has so much to do with Flyleaf’s fans. Our fans are amazing and they stay engaged and interested in what we’re doing. The band didn’t tour or do much for two years before I joined. The fact that they still have so many Facebook fans and Twitter followers and people that everyday are interested in what we’re doing is amazing. It’s a true blessing for sure.

I’m sure the momentum and the cries for new music are hitting a fever pitch, so it sounds like your timing is good. Congratulations on the PledgeMusic campaign. It sounds like you were successful there, but you guys decided to sort of buck the trends of like Kickstarter and Indiegogo and go with PledgeMusic and it was successful. What was beneficial about going about it that way?

Actually PledgeMusic is something I’ve been interested in for a while. My band [Vedera] stopped playing around the same time that Lacy left Flyleaf, and so I was just kind of writing some music for myself. I was looking at Kickstarter and PledgeMusic because I didn’t have a label at the time.

I was really interested in the way that they engaged the fans and they offer experiences that people don’t normally offer, and I really like the way it put the power in your hands and the fans’ hands and not really needing a label. It was quite liberating for me.

When Flyleaf was talking about doing that because we just parted ways with Octone–the record label that were previously on–it just seemed like the perfect fit and just the people at PledgeMusic, they are just legit and they care about putting it back in the artist’s hands.

The whole structure was created by an artist himself. We just got the sense of the passion there and we always like to partner with people that have the same passion that we do. Thankfully it turned out to be a really cool experience and allowed us — you know how the industry can kind of slowdown in December and January, but we kept pushing through with stuff and we could do it from our home, so that was really nice.

Creatively, how different is it to do an album this way without a label kind of looking over your shoulder? Do you guys feel freer than ever in a sense?

I think we do. We’re not sure exactly what we’ll do moving forward. We may partner with a label for certain marketing aspects and whatnot. Eventually it will be maybe nice to have a label involved, but I think for us, definitely for me during writing, it was really nice to not have anyone looking over our shoulder because that was when we kind of decided to part ways with Octone.

So we had the opportunity to just write whatever we felt, and that was really freeing for us and I think it comes out in the songs. You can tell that we felt free in writing those.

#tbt Arise live video from Anaheim 2013 - Leave a comment

Okay so I don’t usually do these throwback posts, but I’ve been digging through the Flyleaf youtube tag to kind of do a best of the best mp3 compilation of Kristen live to tide myself over until the new record comes out. And I found this! What a beautiful performance. Arise is the kind of song that evoked such a powerful feeling from me the second I heard it…it just gave me good music chills. And that never faded no matter how many times I heard it. I know a lot of people identify with Arise and find hope in this song, because it’s such a beautiful thing. Every single time I hear it at a show, I get all teary at the end when the whole crowd sings along. Because I’m a super huge sap. Don’t judge.

I really feel like this video captures what it’s like to see Flyleaf live, and captures the feeling of the song. So I thought I’d share with you guys! Enjoy. <3
