Click here to view a new media section of FlyleafOnline.com. I decided to enter the 21st century, and created some iPhone wallpapers for you guys. In addition to the ones shown above, there are also separate wallpapers for each band member. So check them out! I’ll be adding more in the future, so if you have anything you’d like to see, let me know. :]
Flyleaf has posted on their Facebook page:
We are finalizing plans for the studio and in the meantime we are sharing a live version of Well of Lies with everyone who pre-orders the new album at www.pledgemusic.com/flyleaf
“Well of Lies was written about the struggle between light and dark in our lives. We can so easily believe lies of desperation, insecurity and fall into depression. But that is not the life we were created for. We are created for abundance, joy, peace, strength and love. We have a light inside of us if we call on God’s name. In my life, even when things get hard with my relationships, career, etc. I know I have already been given everything I need in God. There is nothing this world can provide for me that is greater than knowing that truth. Castles will crumble, money will be spent, friends/family may betray you, but God never will. This song is about trusting that inner strength that has been given to us.”
Pledge to pre-order Flyleaf’s new album and get access to this beautiful recording of Well Of Lies along with several other videos, songs, and artwork exclusives!
Hey y’all! Just wanted to let you know that I went and updated the Flyleaf Online photoshop brush set that is available for free download. I’ve collected a lot of logos and symbols that Flyleaf has used in the past few years, and combined them all into a convenient pack of brushes that you can download by clicking the image above.
In my quest to update the brush set, I ended up researching and found a lot of the original fonts used in Flyleaf’s album artwork and logos. So I’ll be uploading a free font pack for all of you within the next few days, so stay tuned!
If there’s anything you’d like to see here, let me know! Always down for suggestions and comments. Thanks for lookin’! <3
So I updated the gallery layout so it looks just as supa dupa fly as the main page. As far as photos go, I added a batch of high resolution versions of Flyleaf’s newer logos here. Feel free to use those in graphics, or to promote the band on the web! In addition to that, I uploaded some photos from 96 Rock Acoustic (03/06/2013) and more from the Chili Cookoff.
I also went through the site today and updated a lot of things! First off, in the Flyleaf Info section, I updated the Flyleaf Biography with their most current bio. I also added some new information to the Flyleaf FAQ regarding Kristen joining, and some New Horizons/Who We Are song meanings. Information and lyrics for the songs on the Who We Are EP have been added to the discography. I have lyrics for the new album songs (Marionette, Thread, City Kids, Set Me On Fire, etc), but I’m not sure if it’s time to post them since a lot of those songs are PledgeMusic exclusives. I’ll ask around and get back to you guys. ;)
I also created some new wallpapers with some of the new promotional pictures in high resolution for your desktop! I hope you enjoy. <3
It’s been a few years since I’ve switched this place up, so here we go! Flyleaf Online has a new layout. I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think. <3
1. Your debut album sold over 1 million copies, did you have any idea at the time that it would do so well?
I didn’t have any idea how the debut album would be received. We are thankful that so many people connected with the message in the songs. Hearing their stories of how the songs impacted their lives for the better reiterates to us that Flyleaf is doing what we’re supposed to be doing.
2. Flyleaf is constantly touring the globe, how do you cope with being in each others pockets for such long periods at a time?
To cope with living on top of one another on tour you have to either really like the people you are with, or have the highest level of tolerance for shenanigans and bodily odors. If you boast both attributes you were born to tour. No question.
3. I see that you guys are tracking some new tunes for a new album, can the fans expect a similar sound to that of your last release New Horizons?
Flyleaf’s sound grows and evolves with us as we grow older and experience more life. On our new album you will hear sounds that remind you of New Horizons, Memento Mori, and our eponymous debut, but at the same time hear something that is altogether something fresh and new.

Thank you to TD Wehle for the photos!
This show was pretty unique and special, and I’m glad I got to see it. Joel (Flyleaf’s retired drum tech) was on drums for the evening, and the two guitarists from Stars In Stereo subbed in for Sameer. I forget exactly why James and Sameer were away, but it was undoubtedly for a very good reason. It was the only Flyleaf show that they played with only 2 of the original members as far as I know. It was kinda crazy and a funny realization as I was standing there watching the show! But everyone did such a great job, and it was cool to see what they did with it.
I’m working on a new look for the site, and will be updating the discography with the new songs/album info. If there is anything y’all would like to see, please let me know! I live to serve. <3
Thanks to Rebecca Houlden for the pictures! <3
Tell us about the new album. How will it compare to past albums?
This will be our 4th full length album. However, it will be our first with Kristen. The songs are really coming together great — with sounds that you have not heard from us yet. I feel that overall it may not be as dark as some of our past records, but there will still be some heavy moments. We have a nice group of songs to pick from, and I can’t wait to get it recorded.
How has the band adapted with new singer Kristen May? What all does she bring to the table?
Adapted? She fit right in. With Kristen only having been with us for just over a year now, I couldn’t imagine a better first year. She has been so great to have on the road. Aside from an amazing voice and strong performer, she has been a very big part in the writing for the new record.
Tell us about your fan interaction opportunities on Pledgemusic.com.
Pledgemusic has opened up good opportunities for us to connect with our fans. We have been able to share news about the record and song writing as it happens. Also we have been able to share our hobbies and things we enjoy outside of music. We are blessed to have so many fans that support us, and to hear how Flyleaf’s music has affected people’s lives has been encouraging.
Did you write all of the new songs as a band or were they written before Kristen joined?
All five of us have been involved in writing the songs for the new record. We always write as a band.

Flyleaf made it! Their project has been fully funded, and they now are set to make their new record!
Dear friends and pledgers,
We did it! We reached our goal on www.pledgemusic.com/flyleaf !! With your help, we are able to go and record an album we are ecstatic about. Thank you for sharing your love, generosity and stories on the pledgemusic website with us. This journey has been so exciting so far and we can’t wait to continue it as we enter the studio! Many more updates to come. Once again, thank you for making our dreams come true! You’ve lifted us up and encouraged us to get into the studio and ROCK!
All our love::
James, Pat, Kristen, Jared and Sameer
Even though I’m not a band member, I’m still so thankful for every single person who pledged money to make this record happen. Flyleaf is a band that means so much to me. I would be a totally different person if I hadn’t discovered their music 9 years ago. Through those years, I’ve met and talked with tons of folks who share that same sentiment. Their music, and the members as people have done so much for us fans, so it’s amazing that we were able to give back this way.
So THANK YOU GUYS! I’m so excited to hear this new album, and very grateful that we’ve got so much more to experience with Flyleaf. <3
I just put up over 70 photos that Caleb and I took at the Upstate Concert Hall show, so check them out at the gallery.
Flyleaf is at 97% of their goal, with 2 days to go to reach it. Go ahead and pledge to get them there!
Flyleaf is at 90% with only 4 days to go, so please consider pledging to make this new record happen! Based on the updates the members of Flyleaf have been posting, this new record is going to be so inspiring, beautiful and completely worth every penny we are putting forth to support them. Sameer posted an amazing clip of him singing City Kids yesterday, and it’s just…incredible.
The minimum pledge is $10, which guarantees you a download of the album (less than what iTunes will charge you when it comes out), and you get access to all the things Flyleaf has been posting. The updates have included Pat’s artwork, amazing videos (interviews as well as performances), homemade hats, scarves & ornaments, and so many other awesome things. The updates will continue during their recording process, and through the release of the album. Considering all that, $10 isn’t all that much to pay. So PLEDGE today! Flyleaf’s music is so important to so many people, and we need to show them that we believe in them.
It’s so hard to pick a favorite from the new live songs Flyleaf has been posting on their Pledge Music page, but dang! This one might be it. So different, and so amazing!
Click here to pledge for Flyleaf’s new record!
In honor of the holidays, enjoy Kristen singing O Come O Come Emmanuel & We Three Kings with her husband, former Vedera guitarist, Brian Little. They sound amazing. Enjoy! Merry Christmas everyone! <3
Flyleaf has reached 40% of their album-funding goal through PledgeMusic.com, and over the last few days, Flyleaf has posted about 10 updates. The most recent update includes a video interview about the record with both Flyleaf and the producers of the record, as well as a lengthy clip of Marionette, which is one of the new songs Flyleaf has written.
To see these exclusive updates, you should pledge! Nearly 500 of us have so far, but we need more! Let’s help Flyleaf blow past that 100% mark, and let’s show them how much we believe in them! Judging from the clip of Marionette alone, this record is going to be absolutely incredible.
Pledge here today!
This song is absolutely beautiful. Go to Kristen’s YouTube page and tell her how much you love it. While you’re there, subscribe to her channel!
