Guitar Hero III for X-Box

Fans already salivating for next month’s release of the video game “Guitar Hero III” will be treated to an Interscope CD featuring music from the game and a special code unlocking new or remixed songs from Marilyn Manson, AFI and Flyleaf.

Via a code that will come with the disc, Xbox Live users can unlock the bonus playable songs “Carcinogen Crush” from AFI, “Tina” from Flyleaf and a remix of Manson’s “Putting Holes in Happiness” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner.

Also, the Flyleaf Street Team is buzzing with news of new Flyleaf coming in October. What it actually is has remained a secret, but I’ve heard rumors of a Flyleaf LP reissue with new artwork and features or a Flyleaf DVD. Not sure exactly yet, but it’ll be posted here as soon as I know.

In other news, FlyleafMusic.com and the Flyleaf Merch Site have gotten makeovers. Nothing new as far as content really, but it’s worth looking at because it’s pretty. :D In addition to that, Flyleaf is nominated on Cornerstone’s “Favorite Shows” poll, so everyone should go and vote for the band there. Registration is free on that site, so go nuts.

Band section pages that have been updated this time include chart history as well as the tour page.

In the media section, the radio audio page and the misc audio page have been updated with new stuff. A couple more videos from the Atlanta FVT date have been added to the live video page thanks to Spree. Also, coming soon to theatres, we have 3 or 4 full length Flyleaf shows in the works to be posted in the video section. Those include the secret MySpace show and Holypalooza thanks to Spree, Hartford FVT [including a short acoustic show/interview] thanks to Ali and the Scranton Tink’s show thanks to Caleb. So look out for that in the coming weeks.

PS – The band loved the second Scrapbook. They really appreciate that all of the fans are pitching in to do this project, so hopefully we can keep it going. Thank you guys for helping me out by sending in amazing messages for the band.







Scrapbook Project - 17 Comments

I’m currently compiling the second Scrapbook for Flyleaf that will be given to the band at the Scranton, PA show at Tink’s. This is kind of a last call so to speak. If you want to be included in this one, get your submissions in by Sunday night. You can read more about the project here.

Also, if you’re going in the Scranton area and planning on going, I’ll be at the signing as well as the show with a ton of free Flyleaf stuff to hand out. If you’re interested in meeting up or want to help out with the free stuff, feel free to contact me through email beforehand. :D

Scrapbook / Secret Show / Tour Dates / Charts / Merch / SayNow - 21 Comments

Flyleaf will be playing a secret show on September 12, 2007 at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC. If you’re in that general area, you should consider going to the show. It’s absolutely free of charge. The ST has had us promoting the show, so that’s how we know it’s official. Otherwise, it’s been a well kept secret. Go to the show and support the band if you’re nearby!

In other news, the official merch site has been updated with new shirts and a new hoodie. The band also has a page on SayNow.com where they post voicemail messages from the road.

The band section has been updated with new tour dates and some new numbers on the chart history page.

In the media section, I finally added the audio from the Rolling Stone Acoustics since they’re no longer available for purchase. In addition to that, some new videos were added. 3 new live videos from Atlanta thanks to Spree, and 1 amazing interview from Music Choice’s Fresh Crops thanks to Josh.

In the internet section some new affiliates were added including a brand new Flyleaf site called Flyleaf Web. So go show Justin some love and visit his site.

A reminder to those who want to donate something to the Scrapbook Project: I’m going to be putting another book together between this and next weekend to give to the band at the Scranton, PA Tink’s show on September 18th. So if you want to be included in the next book, please email me your submission soon.







Charts / FAQ / BFTP / Wallpapers / Rock the Deuce / Tattoos / Gallery - 27 Comments

Lots of site updates today guys. Prepare yourselves. :P

In the band section, the chart history page has been updated as always with new numbers. The band is up to #11 on the Top Modern Rock Track chart, and up to #65 on the Top 200. The album has been on that chart for 75 weeks so far, which is awesome. In addition to that, the FAQ has been updated with information about Tina, and more about Lacey’s tattoos for those of you who are interested. The Blast From The Past page has also been heavily updated.

In the media section, 11 new wallpapers were added on the donated page. Thanks to everyone that sent some in. :D On the video page, we put up Flyleaf’s appearance on Rock the Deuce. That can be found in the interview section. Spree also sent in some amazing live videos from the Atlanta Family Values date that we’ll be adding up in a couple days. So look forward to those. The audio section also got a facelift. It’s much easier to navigate now. I’m thinking about having a feature where you guys can stream each audio file as well as being able to download it. If you’re interested in that feature, let me know in a comment and I’ll see what I can do. :]

The fan section was updated with a couple of new tattoos from Cate. In addition to that, the Flyleaf fanlisting has over 600 members now. If you haven’t joined already, you should check it out. :]

As far as miscellaneous site updates go, I upgraded the gallery software and modified the templates. Now it has updates at the bottom of the main page, and a chunk of statistics. I also added a form to the bottom of the right sidebar where you can sign up for the Flyleaf Online Newsletter. Every month or so, I’ll be sending out updates on the band that include videos, pictures and anything else relevant. So feel free to sign up for it. :]







Charts / Discography / Fanart / Wallpapers / Gallery / Audio - 24 Comments

Flyleaf will be on MTV2’s Rock the Deuce tomorrow night 8/25 at 10PM EST. Ali will be taping/ripping the episode for upload here, so if you can’t see it, don’t worry. For everyone who can watch it, please do. :]

In the band section, the discography section was updated with the information about the I’m So Sick remix that will be appearing on the Resident Evil Extinction soundtrack. I uploaded the track to the radio for everyone to listen to. It’s really an awesome remix. If you enjoy it, you should pick up the soundtrack on September 18th. In addition to that, the chart page was updated. Flyleaf is #7 on the Top Hard Rock Albums right now.

In the media section, a bunch of new audio was uploaded. Two new shows were added from the NJ FVT dates, and 2 acoustic tracks were also put up. The acoustic All Around Me has a slight glitchy sound in it, but aside from that, the recordings are pretty good. Also uploaded into the media section, were some new fanarts and wallpapers. So enjoy.








New Official Streeteam / iTunes page / News - 24 Comments

AM/Octone has unleashed the brand new official streetteam website. It’s really amazing, professional and useful. If you want to help the band out and promote on and offline, you should consider taking the time out to join the team.

A message board, media/tools section and points system have been integrated into the new site. Everything you do is worth points that you can use towards prizes in the future, like guest list access and other exclusive things. Basically, it’s awesome and you should join.

Aside from that, some news on the Flyleaf front has surfaced. I’m So Sick will be featured in a video game called Rock Band. I think it’s something similar to Guitar Hero for anyone who’s played it. Also, a remix of I’m So Sick will be featured on the new Resident Evil soundtrack, which is pretty cool.

In addition to that, you all should visit the Flyleaf iTunes page and spread it around if you get the chance. A link to it can be found below.







Gallery (Pictures/Layout) / Charts / New Album News - 56 Comments

Thanks to everyone who sent in stuff for the karaoke contest. Everyone is doing great so far. The prizes are a lot cooler this time around, so if you haven’t already, check out our contest and consider joining. :D

Jared posted a new blog on the band’s MySpace where he talked about the new album amongst various other things. For those of you who don’t visit their MySpace, here’s what he had to say about it:

Lacey started writing a new song using Garage Band. It sounds really cool so far. We’ll all get together and work on it when we get a chance, she only has 2 or 3 lines written, but it seems cool so I’m excited about working on it.

As for when our new cd will come out, we’re really not sure right now. Hopefully we will get to start recording it at the beginning of next year, and we’ll have it out early 2008 – it’s just so hard to tell though because we are touring so much. We have been working on writing a lot though and we have about six or seven songs we’re working with and a couple of more ideas to go from. Maybe we’ll get to put one or two of our really old songs on the new album, and we’ll change them a bit. We really don’t know…but we’re REALLY looking forward to getting to write it.

In addition to that, the charts page has been updated. The band is up to #17 on the Hot Modern Rock chart, #66 on the Top 200, and #20 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. They’ve also sold over 702,000 albums, and shipped over 743,000. They’re getting up there towards platinum, so that’s awesome. :D

The gallery got a makeover a few minutes ago. It’s now purple and features a new photoshoot picture of the band.







Contest / Charts / Tour / Gallery - 29 Comments

The new Flyleaf Online contest has now started. Since you guys requested it, the theme is a karaoke contest. I provided 3 karaoke tracks for everyone to sing along to, and all the details are on this page. An instrument related cover contest might come along in the future, as well as the other ideas you guys suggested. Thanks for all of the ideas. :]

I also tweaked the layout a little and made it a little more colorful with a new header image. I hope everyone enjoys it a little more now.

The band section was updated with some new chart numbers as well as some new tour dates that the band will be playing in September.







Flyleaf Wiki / Videos / Charts / Contest / Gallery - 34 Comments

Today we’re introducing a new project to the site called the Flyleaf Wiki. I worked on it for about 5-6 hours, customizing the layout and adding all of the pages up. It’s mainly a reference for the band history/lyrics/etc. I’ll be fleshing it out when I get more time, but it’s also a project for you guys. Feel free to sign up and contribute to the pages if you want. Just make sure that whatever you post is true. I’ll be keeping an eye on it to make sure that it stays on the right track, but it’d be awesome if you guys helped. :D

Aside from that big, new chunk of site, the charts and video pages have been updated. Thanks again to Chris for donating the videos from The Call, and to Caleb for editing them and setting all the streams up.

As a sidenote, I wanted to get an opinion on a possible new contest. I want to offer bigger prizes this time around (T-shirt/MAAW EP/Flyleaf Watch/Poster/etc) but I’m unsure of what the theme could be. I was thinking maybe a karaoke contest, Flyleaf Banner making contest or maybe a MySpace Layout contest. Something along those lines. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas of things you might want to do. If so, feel free to post it in the comments.

Also — we have a special treat in the gallery. Joel from Flyleaf’s road crew has given us permission to post some of the photos he’s taken of the band on the road over the past few years. So a big thank you goes to him for that.







Scrapbook/Charts/Article/FAQ/Tattoo/Gallery - 15 Comments

To the couple people who had a question about the scrapbook project, I wanted to clear something up. There will be an indefinite amount of books as long as you guys keep sending in stuff for them. So don’t feel like you’re too late because you missed the first one. :D

In the article section, a new interview/article was posted where Lacey talks about the 2007 FVT, her early life, and her musical influences. The frequently asked questions got updated with the meaning to Perfect. In addition to that, the chart page was updated again. All Around Me is up to #20 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Other than that, a couple of new fan tattoos have been added, as well as Shiloh’s story. So everyone should check those out.







Scrapbook Update/Tattoos/Chart/Gallery/Wallpaper - 16 Comments

The scrapbook project was a big success. Over 50 people entered something for the book, and the very first one is completed. I spent around 12 hours putting it all together yesterday. It will be delivered to the band this Sunday at the Hartford, Connecticut show. Caleb, Ali and I will be attending that show if anybody wants to shout us a h0lla.

The band section has been updated with more new numbers on the chart history page. According to Billboard.com, Flyleaf has the #1 Christian and Gospel album right now. All Around me is also moving up the charts consistently. So congratulations to them.

A new wallpaper was added up thanks to Courtney. Also, a new fan tattoo was put up as well. Thanks to Debra for submitting that.







Scrapbook/Videos/Icons/Wallpapers/Gallery - 26 Comments

A project page has been added to the fan section. It’s a scrapbook project from the fans to the band that everyone should check out and consider submitting something for. All of the details can be found on this page. Also, in the fan section, the fanart and tattoo pages have been updated.

The media section has been updated with 9 new icons and 3 awesome new wallpapers all made by Karla. In addition to that, 3 more videos have been added up that consist of So I Thought and Cassie from Camden, and Tina from Chambersburg.

In the band section, the meaning to All Around Me was added to the FAQ page. Also, a live version of Again has been uploaded to the Flyleaf Online radio. I’ll be adding Have We Lost as soon as I can get my hands on some good audio of it.







Article/Charts/Tour/Video/Big Gallery Update - 19 Comments

Thank you to everyone who commented on the new layout and suggested things for the new fan section. I appreciate all the kind words and I’ll definitely look into getting some of the sections setup that people requested. :D

In the band section, a new interview with Lacey was posted. It’s a fairly recent interview where she talks about the Justice and Mercy tour as well as the upcoming FVT. Some tour dates were edited, and a bunch were archived. Also, some new numbers were updated on the chart page. Flyleaf had a big sales boost this week and are currently #105 on the Billboard Top 200.

The media section was updated with 3 new videos. One is an interview that the band did with IMF. The other two are live videos. One is Again from Chambersburg and the other is Justice and Mercy from Camden.

I setup the beginnings of the fan tattoos page. I’ve still got a couple to add. If you have a tattoo that pertains to Flyleaf, feel free to shoot me an email with a picture and your story.







New Layout, Gallery, Chart History, Video - 31 Comments

Alrighty — The new layout is up. It took a long time to put together, so I hope everyone enjoys it. With this new layout, we’re introducing a new section. It’ll be a section dedicated to fan interaction. Right now there isn’t much of anything in it, but I have ideas. I’ll be adding polls/project ideas/art/tattoos/etc. If anybody has any ideas that they’d like to see included, feel free to comment with them.

As far as actual site updates, the chart history page was updated as always with new numbers. In addition to that, an edited version of the All Around Me video was added to the video section. It’s a new HQ version replacing the much larger DVD file.







Video Download - 21 Comments

Here are the All Around Me video downloads. We had a little trouble encoding the HQ version, so it’s a DVD quality rip of a 6 minute segment from the show it was aired on. Just fast forward through the other stuff. We’ll have another version up soon once we figure out the problem. Beware of the size though. It’s a good 400MBs.

The LQ version is from the Yahoo premiere. For some reason the paint is bright pink instead of red. Either way, the video is awesome so you should download it. :D

All Around Me 414 MBS – VOB 9.00 MBS – WMV

More updates are to come soon. I just wanted to get these up for everyone.







All Around Me Video, Article, Gallery, Videos - 26 Comments

The All Around Me video will be premiering on Fuse’s Oven Fresh next week, and on Yahoo Music on June 28th. When the time comes, be sure to vote for Flyleaf on Oven Fresh.

In addition to that, I’m So Sick will be featured in the movie Live Free Or Die Hard which is the 4th Die Hard movie which is pretty cool. If you go to see the movie, be sure to listen for the song.

In the band section, one new article was added. It features mainly Jared which is a cool rarity. It’s nice to hear what he has to say. All Around Me has debuted at #40 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks. More numbers/stats were updated on the charts page. Also, the tour dates were updated a bit.

On the video page, 5 new videos were added. Thanks to Ali for getting the SCTV Interview, and to Tracie and Anthony for donating live videos.

The Sauce Download, Photos, Lyrics, Fanart - 27 Comments

Flyleaf’s appearance on Fuse’s The Sauce is now up for hi-res and lo-res download in the video section. If anyone wants the ultra-HQ version of the interview/All Around Me clip, then you can get that here. It’s a good 240MBS and it’s an MPG. Thanks to Mike for sending that file in. He gets all the stuff we can’t get ourselves and we’re really grateful for that.

In the lyrics section, the full lyrics to the new song Have We Lost have been posted. Sameer posted them in a blog on Flyleaf’s MySpace. Thanks to Lori for originally sending them to me.

The fanart section was heavily updated tonight with 11 new drawings. Thank you to Cherry, Riley, Kristen, Keith, Michael and Michelle for sending those in.

I have a bunch more stuff to add, so I should have another update sometime soon. I’ve been fiddling with a new design for the site, but nothing too impressive so far. Hopefully I can get something new up within the next few weeks.







AAM Video, Charts, Photo - 92 Comments

Sorry about the absence of updates. I took a vacation to the south and had minimal internet. But I’m back, so updates will resume as scheduled. :D

First off, Flyleaf will be featured on Fuse’s The Sauce on May 16th. I don’t have Fuse, so I’m not sure how soon I’ll be able to get a video. If anyone wants to grab a high quality rip for the site, I’d be forever appreciative and give a Flyleaf related gift to the first person who gets it to me.

The All Around Me video has been shot. According to Exodite on Flyleaf Fans, the video is performance based with lots of spilling paint everywhere. He spoke with Pat at a recent show. A picture from the set posted by hl9ac in the comments confirms this.

Click on the picture for a larger version. No word on a release date yet, but it’ll be posted here as soon as we hear.

The lyrics to the new song Again were posted here in the band section. Thanks to Tyler for getting those and sending them in. Also, the chart history page was updated with new numbers. All Around Me has landed on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart on Billboard.com at #35.

The video page was updated with the last acoustic video from the White Rabbit in San Antonio as well as the last two videos from Kat Hartmann. One of those videos is of Lacey giving a tour of the bus, and the other is of Jared showing everyone how Pat warms up before shows. Enjoy!
