Flyleaf’s Appearance on TRL - 5 Comments

We have Flyleaf’s appearance on TRL up on the site for anyone who may have missed it, or would like to see it again. Basically, the band is interviewed for a couple of minutes and then they join some celebrity judges in rating two groups playing Rock Band. Thanks to Ali for ripping, and Caleb for editing.

In addition to that, the last 2 videos from the MySpace Secret Show were added here thanks to Spree. Next up will be the videos from the Columbia/Finley Park show also known as Holypalooza. After that, we’ll have the show from Tink’s in Scranton, PA. Enjoy!







Contest, Charts, Videos, Icons - 5 Comments

Congratulations to Karla, Candy, and Derrel for winning 1st, 2nd and 3rd place respectively in the Flyleaf Online Karaoke Contest. The winners have been notified through email. Thank you to everyone who joined, and everyone who voted. Everyone did really awesome. :D The next contest will be up soon.

In the second week of sales for the Special Edition CD/DVD, Flyleaf sold over 10,100 copies. That brings them up to 930,000 shipped. They’re also currently #88 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

In the media section, 3 more videos from the MySpace Secret Show in Raleigh, NC were posted. You can view those here. Thanks again to Spree for shooting those videos. I also added a few new icons to the icons page from the new photoshoot. If you guys have anything to donate to the media section, feel free to hit me up. I’ll post it in the next update.







Entertainment Weekly 11/16 - 6 Comments

Flyleaf will be featured in the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly hitting stands on November 16, 2007. I’ll be picking it up and scanning it for the site if you guys can’t get out to stores to get it.

Also, don’t forget about Lacey and Pat’s appearance on TRL tomorrow, November 15th! Tune in at 3:30 PM EST to see them judge video gamers playing Rock Band [which I’m So Sick will be featured on] and premiere the video for “All Around Me” on the show.







MTV’S TRL - 9 Comments

Lacey Mosley and Pat Seals were invited to be on TRL Thursday 11/15/07 to judge video gamers at their “Rock Band” skills. Make sure you check it out, Lacey and Pat also premiere their video for “All Around Me” on TRL!

The show airs at 3:30PM EST for anyone who might not watch it all the time. Not sure if we’re going to be able to get this for the site, so if anyone wants to record it and send it to us, that’d be really awesome.







Ashen INC. Designs - 5 Comments

Hey guys — This isn’t really a Flyleaf update, but it’s something I wanted to post here. I opened a graphic design site today. The website is called Ashen INC, and it’s a project I wanted to start to keep me busy in my spare time. A lot of people in the past have asked about the design work for Flyleaf Online, so I wanted to make a place where people who enjoy what I do here could get a unique design for their own site.

So if you guys might be interested, and wanted to check it out, that’d be awesome. Thanks! :]







Sales, Radio, Videos, Discography - 7 Comments

Flyleaf sold over 13,000 copies of the Special Edition CD/DVD in the first week. They jumped 59 spots on the Billboard Top 200 chart up to #62. The album has been on the charts for over 80 weeks, which is amazing. So congratulations to the band on a job well done. The DVD performances and acoustic audio…all beautiful and touching. You should really check it out if you haven’t already. It was on sale for $11.99 and $14.88 at Best Buy and Walmart respectively, and is available online at iTunes for $9.99.

I added around 15 songs to the radio today, and reorganized the entire thing. It’s now separated into 3 sections; Acoustic, Live and Studio. The additions were made only the acoustic and live sections. The radio information page will be updated with where to get the stuff for download/purchase soon.

In the media section, I added a few new things. The entire AT&T Blue Room show is now linked on the Pro-Shot Live page. I’m not going to be offering those for download since I don’t want to get sued by a big company. ‘Cuz that would suck. But I did add some videos from the MySpace show shot by Spree. Those are available here. Thanks to Spree for shooting those, and to Caleb for making the streaming versions.

In other news, an acoustic EP was released on Rhapsody recently. Information about it is available here and you can purchase it here.







Music for Relief, Videos, Passerby Army - 7 Comments

Hi All — With the devastation from the recent fires in Southern California, you may have heard that Music for Relief and Unite the United have put together a charity auction to raise funds for those affected by this tragedy.

Linkin Park approached us to get involved, and we’re more than happy to to do so. Here is the link where you can bid on amazing items from a ton of great bands and events (including a specialty Flyleaf item).

http://cgi3.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=musicforrelief

Thanks for all your help and support to those in need!

To bid specifically on Flyleaf’s item, you can visit here to do so. Bid away! It’s for a great cause, and the prize is awesome!

Sales figures for the special edition CD/DVD will be in tomorrow. Due to a contest on the streetteam that I don’t want to spoil, I can’t divulge today. But the band did great. They’ve shipped over 925,000 copies of the album, which means they’re only 75,000 away from an RIAA Platinum Certification.

Speaking of the Special Edition — all of the lyrics have been added for the new versions on the albums page, including all of the new lyrics for Cassie. Enjoy!

The rest of the videos from the Hartford FVT show shot by Ali were added on the live shows page. Coming up next will be the MySpace Secret Show shot by Spree, so look forward to that.

The contest has officially ended. There’s over 400 votes that I need to tally up as soon as possible. I’ll be contacting winners fairly soon about that, and they’ll be announced here as well.

In other news, I’ve been given the opportunity to help out with Passerby Army, Flyleaf’s Official Fanclub. I’ll be helping to run the forums, helping with news for the site, and possibly working on some multimedia in the future. I’m working on a new design for the site as well, so hopefully it’ll be well received. Anyway — I just wanted to let you guys know in case you saw me over there and wondered. If you haven’t joined yet, you should really consider it. :D

AT&T Blue Room Concert Series - 32 Comments

The concert is professionally shot with amazing sound. For everyone who’s been waiting for something pro-shot of Flyleaf at a live show, here you are. There are 8 songs on the website, and all are great quality. You can click on the image to be taken to AT&T’s page.

It was shot at the House of Blues Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California on June 16, 2007 I believe.

Enjoy!







Videos / Gallery / Radio Info / AAM / YouTube / Charts - 9 Comments

News just in — All Around Me will be going to Top 40 and pop radio formats. Between this and the reissue of the album, the album might be pushed to platinum sooner than we might have thought. A lot more fans seem to be catching on, which is awesome.

As far as general site news — Flyleaf Online has been extended to YouTube. I created a profile for the website, and will be uploading videos steadily over the next while to make the profile complete. That way you can embed Flyleaf Online videos on your MySpace’s or personal sites if you ever had the inclination to do so.

The page with information on the Flyleaf Radio songs has been brought back, and it’s been fully updated with the new tracks. Hopefully that helps some of you that have been wondering where they all came from.

In the media section, three more videos have been added from the Hartford, CT show. Currently, we have over 220 Flyleaf videos hosted on our site, which is kinda cool.








I’m So Sick Teaser - 12 Comments

Here’s the teaser for I’m So Sick from the October 30, 2007 rerelease of Flyleaf’s debut album. :D Awesome, ain’t it?

Caleb and I are going on vacation for a week or so, so there might be an absence of updates. If anything newsworthy pops up, I think Ali might be cool enough to let everyone know. *nudges Ali*

The band section has been updated with some new chart numbers. All Around Me has peaked at #6 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart, and the album recently went up to #59 on the Top 200 which is awesome. In addition to that, a new interview with Jared was posted on the articles page.

A few more videos have been posted up from the Hartford FVT show that Ali recorded. Thanks again to her, and to Caleb for editing.

Also — not really huge news, but Doug [AM/Octone’s ST manager] let me redesign the header banner for the Flyleaf Street Team, which I thought was cool. If you haven’t joined up there yet, you should consider it. FanCorps has just released a store system where you can exchange store credits for Flyleaf related items. It’s still in it’s beginning stages, but it’s a cool concept. There’s also a lot of other new stuff, but you can read about it if you join.







New Layout / Charts / Discography / Videos / Gallery - 25 Comments

Okay — now that all the kinks have been worked out with the new layout, it’s time to update.

The karaoke contest submission portion has ended. Thank you to everyone who entered for the contest. Keep a look out on the contest page for details of what’s to come next as far as judging.

In the band section, the discography got completely redone. The old setup didn’t mesh well with the new layout, so it had to be reconfigured. In doing that, I also updated the singles page with some new stuff. I also created a new page to keep track of all of Flyleaf’s current merchandise. On that page you can find CD’s, posters, watches, hoodies, shirts, etc. In addition to that, the chart history page was updated as always.

The media section was updated with some new videos from the Hartford Family Values show. A big thank you to Ali for shooting that and to Caleb for editing.

Just a reminder to everyone who wants to enter the Flyleaf Online Karaoke Contest; the contest ends on September 30, 2007. So get your submissions in before the deadline if you want to be up for some cool prizes.
