New Stuff - 27 Comments

New layout. New RSS feature. New radio and a new song. New streaming feature on some of the video pages. I’ll work on getting the rest of the videos up and streaming soon. Each video has to have its own individually coded page, so hopefully I’ll have the live shows page (which has 104 videos) up within this century.

Hope everyone enjoys it. If you have requests for the radio, let me know and I’ll see what I can do. :D

Coming Soon To Theatres - 8 Comments

Edit: I found what looks to be the tracklisting for the Family Values Tour DVD and CD. From what I understand the two will be sold separately. On the CD, Flyleaf will have tracks for I’m So Sick and Pride (In The Name Of Love) with Richard Patrick, and on the DVD they’ll have I’m So Sick and Something I Can Never Have. The DVD and CD should be released on December 26th according to the FVT site. You can sign up to promote the release here.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I’m still alive and kickin’. The Flyleaf world has been a little quiet as of late with the band overseas, so I’ve been doing some stuff behind the scenes. A big feature is going to be unveiled in the near future. I’m not sure how near, because it’s proving to be a lot of work, but hopefully everyone will enjoy it once it’s ready. I’m also fiddling with a new look for the site with a slightly different setup. If anyone has thoughts on what they’d like to see on it, feel free to send an email with suggestions.

Onto the updates (which are few, but better than nothing)! The chart history has been updated. They’re up to about 421,000 albums sold now.

The video page has a couple new additions. Continued thanks to Francine and Caleb for those. Speshul thanks to Caleb for updating for me when I was real tired. Work has been kicking my butt as of late.

Anddddd in the gallery, some more from the Cornerstone Festival were added as well as a few of Flyleaf with fans.

Also, a biiiiiiiiiiig, giant happy birthday to Pat and Jared. *<8D







Videos, Pictures, and News — OH MY! - 34 Comments

It appears that the little birdy rumor of a brand new official Flyleaf myspace layout was true. Go take a look at it. It’s pretty awesome.

It looks like the Glens Falls Civic Center date has disappeared from the MySpace. Since it’s the day before Thanksgiving, I’m guessing they’re going home to spend time with their families. So if you’re going to that date only for Flyleaf, you might want to wait a little bit until you buy tickets. Speaking of those — tickets are now on sale for most of the dates.

In the band section, the chart history was updated. They’re up to #13 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for Fully Alive.

The video section has a few new videos. A super high quality Carson Daly video was added thanks to Mike, and the LQ is thanks to Scott at LM.net. Caleb encoded both for the site, so I a-pre-she-ate that. A couple of Francine’s videos from the Six Flags show were also put up. Caleb also encoded those for the site, so I a-pre-she-ate that too.

In the gallery, a bunch of albums were updated. Click on the respective thumbnails to view them.







Ticket Sales, News and Pictures - 21 Comments

A few of the dates for the Disturbed tour have shown up on Ticketmaster for sale. I’ll try to keep an eye out to let everyone know when the rest are coming.

I heard a rumor from a little birdy that a new official MySpace layout is in the works, as well as a new EP that might be sold exclusively at the Music as a Weapon tour for charity. So start saving your pennies incase it happens so you can buy a few.

The official store has been updated with three new shirts and a brand new hoodie.

As for the Carson Daly video — there was an issue with the recording of the show, and unfortunately as of this moment, we don’t have a copy. But Scott of LaceyMosley.net has come to the rescue and said that he’ll provide us one. So whenever he sends it, I’ll add it up.

A new photoshoot and scans from Kerrang magazine have been added to the gallery. Click the respective pictures to view the albums.







Music as a Weapon Tour, Buzznet Video, AOL Music - 4 Comments

The Music as a Weapon Tour III dates have been released. I have the whole batch of them, along with Flyleaf’s TV appearances listed on the tour page. I also fixed up the navigation for the tour archive and made it a little easier to surf through.

Today is also the one year anniversary of the Flyleaf LP debut. They’ve come quite a long way in the past year, and they all deserve a big congratulations on it. So congrats!

Lacey has been recognized by AOL Music as being one of the Top 20 “Women Who Rock”. She came in at #11. You can read what they had to say about her here.

Sean, the winner of Buzznet’s Fly Away contest was able to interview Flyleaf at the Boston date of the Family Values Tour. You can view the video here.

In the gallery, a few photos from Flyleaf’s performance on CD USA were added. You can see Pat’s supa awesome sharpie ‘stache in a few of them. You can also get a pretty clear view of Lacey’s new hair. I know a lot of people have been asking for pictures of it.







CD USA Performance - 5 Comments

For anyone who hasn’t already seen it. Here’s the CD USA performance of Fully Alive.

Edit: Alrighty. A higher quality MPG of the CD USA performance has been uploaded, as well as a WMV file. Thank you to Mike for the original files, and to Caleb for encoding the MPG to make it smaller.

In the gallery, I updated the following albums:

The date for the Last Call with Carson Daly performance is on Friday night (technically Saturday morning really early) at 1:35AM EST. If you’re in a different timezone, you might want to check your local listings to make sure. The site will most likely have the video up soon after the airing of it.

The Making of Fully Alive is going to be shown on Fuse at the following times:

10/11 @ 10PM and 2AM
10/13 @ 2PM
10/16 @ 2PM
10/20 @ 10PM
10/27 @ 10PM
11/02 @ 5:30PM
11/04 @ 4:30PM

I’m not sure if that’ll be the same one that aired on MTV2. The video of the MTV2 airing is in the video section, but incase it’s not, those are the dates.







Loads of Pictures and Chart History - 2 Comments

In addition to the over 100 pictures added in the past couple days, the chart history was updated. The band is nearing gold status with about 450,000 CDs shipped and 392,600 sold. From what I understand, gold status comes with shipping 500,000 albums, so they’re really close. They’ve also moved up to #14 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Thanks to Francine, we’re going to have some video from the Six Flags show. She sent out the DVD the other day, so we’ll start adding those up as soon as they arrive and get chopped up for the site.







LJ Community, Last.FM, Pictures - 8 Comments

For everyone who has an LJ, feel free to join the Flyleaf community I made. I registered the name back in December of last year, but I never customized it or anything until recently. It’s now open for business though. Once it gains some members, I’ll open applications for moderators/maintainers to help run the community.

I’m not sure if I ever put it here, but I opened a Flyleaf group on Last.FM. So if you have an account there, feel free to join that too and post on the forums if you’re feeling whimsical.

In the gallery, I added a few pictures from The Metro thanks to Samantha S.

As for the CD USA thing, if it would be possible for someone to nab a video copy of their performance on that show for the site, that would be awesome. Neither Caleb or I are Direct TV customers, so we can’t do it unfortunately. If you can do it, please email me and let me know. Thanks in advance to anyone who’s willing.

Also, the Carson Daly show is only being taped on the 28th. I don’t think that’s when the show actually airs. They’re not listed as being on for Thursday. Whenever I figure out the actual air date, I’ll update everyone here.







Gallery Updates - 4 Comments

Not much going on today other than gallery updates. Click the respective pictures to go to the albums.

I also tweaked the gallery settings. Now people can comment and rate photos without having to register. So feel free to do so. :]







Carson Daly, CD USA, Wallpaper, Videos - 5 Comments

According to Flyleaf’s MySpace, the band is going to be taping a performance for Last Call with Carson Daly on September 28th. They’ll also be taping a performance for CD USA on the same day. Information on how to attend these shows can be found on 1iota.com.

The interview for Lacey was sent out today, so there’s no need to send more questions in. Since there were so many (even after I narrowed them down), she’s going to send one question/answer at a time that I’ll post with an update.

In the media section, the last two videos from Bethel were added. I think that’s the last of the videos that we have for now. So enjoy the 139 videos on the site, ’cause it’s all you’re gettin’ for now. ;) Also, I added two new wallpapers.

Yesterday, I did a massive upgrade to the gallery software. It was running on a really old version. It took me a good chunk of the night to get everything backed up and updated. I had to recode the template because the old one didn’t want to cooperate with the new one. I doubt anybody will notice a change, but it’s an update nonetheless. Aside from that, I added a few new SPAC pictures taken by my awesome local radio station 103.1. There hasn’t been much else surfacing lately, so if you guys are taking pictures, feel free to send them in if you wouldn’t mind seeing them in the gallery.

I updated the Flyleaf links page today with a few new sites. If any of you run a Flyleaf fansite or forum, email me and I’ll add your link to that page.







Videos, Gallery, Discography - 11 Comments

Sorry about the slack in updating guys. There hasn’t been much going on in the past few days. That’s generally when I decide to scour the site to see if there’s anything I can upgrade. I decided that I’m going to snazz up the discography a little more. I’ll be adding separate pages for each album/ep with more information as to who produced/mixed/etc. It’s kind of bare in that respect.

In other news, I have a request for everyone who visits. Lacey invited me to interview her for the site when I last saw her and I have a few things in mind, but I think it’d be cool if you guys tossed in your ideas too. If there’s been something you’ve wondered about the band or music, fill out the form on the contact page or comment with the question(s) and I’ll include them.

In the media section, two more videos from the Bethel Youth Center have been added. I believe there are two more waiting to be encoded and uploaded, but that might take a little bit since Caleb has to catch up on a bunch of school work. A new drawing of Pat was added to the fanart page thanks to Ralin.

The gallery was updated with a bunch of photos. First, a small collection of photoshoot pictures thanks to Stewart Isbell. There are specific rules in regards to using those photos, so please respect his wishes. One candid was added as well as a few more behind the scenes shots of the band and Richard Patrick of Army of Anyone. A few from the Criminal Records in-store were put up in addition to some miscellaneous live photos.

Lastly, a set of really nice pictures were taken of the band for Incendio Nation. They’re a really awesome clothing line that everyone should check out. Their MySpace is here and their official site is here. They have Flyleaf featured as their band of the month.







More News and Pictures - 4 Comments

Flyleaf and Richard Patrick of Army of Anyone (Filter) collaborated on the U2 song “Pride (In the Name of Love)” for the Family Values Tour in Holmdel, New Jersey. According to the band’s MySpace, the song has been recorded for the Family Values Tour album due to come out in early December 2006.

Aside from that, the tour dates have been updated with another Stone Sour date and a few pictures have been added to the gallery. Click the thumbnails to go to the respective albums.







Tour news, discography, pictures and video - 5 Comments

I’m back and bearing news. :] The Disturbed tour has been confirmed. It should be starting around November 14th and ending around December 20th. Not sure of dates yet, but I’ll put them up when I find them.

Good news for German fans — the band will be doing a few dates in Germany supporting Stone Sour at the end of October. I added the dates up on the tour page. I’m not sure if I got the venues correct, because the official German Flyleaf site and the ticket site differed slightly. Any people familiar with German venues, feel free to shoot me an email if I messed something up.

The discography was updated with a new EP. Flyleaf covered U2’s ‘Stay’ live for Sirius Octane, and a new studio recording has surfaced on the Target Red Room EP. It’s available at, you guessed it, Target. It’s got about 17 songs from different artists, but it’s only 6 bucks or so. So I encourage everyone to go pick it up. The cover came out great. Aside from that and tour dates, the chart history page was updated. Fully Alive has moved up to #30 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart.

In the media section, All Around Me from Bethel was added in the video section. There are a couple more from that show, but the encoding is being troublesome according to Caleb, so hold tight for now. They’ll be up soon, hopefully.

The gallery was updated with:

– 07 from Buzznet
– 75 from SPAC
– 18 from New England Dodge







Hey guys - 4 Comments

I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m not going to be updating for the next couple days. Caleb and I are going to see a few Flyleaf shows, so I’ll be away from the computer for the most part.

Before I leave, I’m going to link a couple more Bethel videos to keep you entertained.

Fully Alive LQ
Fully Alive HQ
I’m Sorry LQ

Sorrow LQ

Also, in the gallery, I uploaded a few things: Lacey’s Revolver scan, more behind the scenes stuff taken by the band, and a few more from their Buzznet account.







Bethel Live Videos - 9 Comments

Four videos from the Bethel Youth Center have been added. Links to download them are below:

Red Sam26.9 MBS // 9.70 MBS
Breathe Today25.1 MBS // 9.05 MBS
Perfect19.5 MBS // 7.09 MBS
Broken Wings26.6 MBS // 9.57 MBS

In other news, Flyleaf is “strongly” rumored to be an opening act for Disturbed’s Music As A Weapon III tour which starts off in November. An official announcement about the tour will be announced soon on Disturbed’s fan club site. Thanks to Sheila8703 on EvBoard for that information.

For those of you interested in purchasing a physical I’m So Sick single, you can do so here. I also added it to the discography.

Some photos from Stadtpark in Hamburg Germany were added. Those were taken by Torsten Volkmer. The gallery hit 4000 pictures with that set, which was a small ‘yay’ moment for the site.







Flyleaffans.com is back! Weeeee! - 10 Comments

After some issues, Flyleaf Fans has returned. The latest backup of the site that was able to be restored was July 27th. So, if you registered on the board after that, unfortunately your account was lost. Aside from that, everything should be smooth sailing from now on because the site is on a new server.

As far as actual site updates — not much going on as of late. I added a few things to the gallery, which I’ll just list seeing as there’s not much else.

The Loft – Thanks to Mallory.
The Edge Magazine Scans
Headliners – Thanks to Kate.
Hawthorne Theatre – Thanks to Ginny.

Within the next day or so, I’ll be putting up some live video from Bethel Youth Center thanks to Josh and Caleb. I think the Bethel set will hold the first live video of Broken Wings this site has seen. It’s different from the demos we’ve all heard, so look out for that.

If anybody has requests/suggestions — hit me up. I’m at a loss for new ideas.







Sooooo - 74 Comments

I got bored and decided to switch around the layout a little. The gallery layout has a new header too. It’ll probably stay like this for a while, but heck, you never know with me.

I’m not entirely sure what’s going on with Flyleaf Fans. A few people have asked through email, so I figured I should address it here. It seems to be a server issue since several other sites on the server are timing out. I’m not sure when it’ll be back up. Hopefully soon.

First bit of news — Flyleaf is releasing their debut album with Tina added to the tracklisting. It’ll also be enhanced with the Breathe Today video and the I’m So Sick video. When it becomes available, you can purchase it here at Amazon.com. I’m not sure if that version will be available in stores or just as an import, but either way it’s pretty nice to have Tina on a CD.

The band section was updated with a couple new articles. One of them is called Texas Hard Rockers With A Taste For Literature and the other is an interview Sameer did with Sony Australia. Chart history was tweaked a little with a new albums sold count. Fully Alive has moved up another slot to #20 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

I also updated the merch link since the official store has moved. In addition to new shirts, the prices have been raised to 30-35 dollars per t-shirt plus shipping [which is kind of outrageous]. I wonder if the shirts will be that expensive at shows. Anybody been to any Family Values dates that can vouch for the price of the shirts there?

In the media section, some new icons were added thanks to Anja. A handful of videos were added as well. The rest of the Juanita’s show and an interview from Rock Circus were added.

20 shots from Coors Amphitheater were put up. Those were taken by Scott Smith. A few more from Flyleaf’s Buzznet account were also added.







Photoshoot outtakes, icons, videos and moreeee - 14 Comments

Hey everyone. Thanks for all the comments on the layout. It’s cool that nobody hates it. Or maybe people do and just didn’t comment. Either way! Thank you. :]

In the band section, I updated the chart history once again. Fully Alive has moved up to #21 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart and they’ve sold 322,400 albums in total. Also, they’re currently #67 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, so congratulations to Flyleaf.

The media section was updated with a bunch of new icons thanks to Brittani. One new signature was also put up thanks to Demonspitfir. On the video page, four new videos from Juanita’s were added thanks to Caleb, as well as the MTV2 All That Rock’s performance of I’m So Sick thanks to Joey. The video section now has over 120 videos, which is pretty neat.

The gallery was updated with:

– 43 Buzznet Candids – Thanks to Flyleaf’s Buzznet account.
– 13 Outtakes from the James Minchin photoshoot.
– 14 Smirnoff Music Centre shots – Thanks to Greg Smith.
– 29 The Door photos from 2002 – Thanks to Greg Smith.

Also, on Flyleaf Fans, I made 6 new headers and put them into rotation. If you guys haven’t registered at that forum, you should check it out. There’s about 2,100 members.







New Layout weeee! - 25 Comments

Flyleaf Online has been officially made over. It took a bit of self control to keep it light, since I normally can’t help making graphics dark. Sorry in advance if you liked the other one better. I needed something new to look at. You might have to refresh or clear your cache to see it all properly. I’ll probably redo the gallery layout sometime soon, and perhaps the fanlisting one as well. We’ll see.

As far as updates, there aren’t many since I was busy with the layout. I’ll probably edit this post later on tonight with more if I can find something to add.

In the media section, I added a few new promotional tools. I also added a text area under each banner so you can just copy and paste the code on your MySpace or wherever you want. On the video page, I added four live videos from Juanita’s. Red Sam was left out because of the abounding technical difficulties with the sound in case anyone was wondering why it wasn’t there.

In the gallery, I added a bunch more photos to the Bob Carmichael album. Those pictures are pretty old, but nice. Several from last nights show in San Antonio were added here thanks to Ali. About 15 shots from the Pensacola Civic Center were put up here thanks to John at odsrockshots.com.

I hope everyone enjoys the new layout. :]







New photoshoot pictures, chart history, contest - 4 Comments

I got an overwhelming response in regards to the last update in the past few days which was unexpected, but very appreciated nonetheless. Thanks to everyone who commented and emailed. It means a lot.

A new Flyleaf contest has surfaced on Buzznet.com. Everyone can check out the details and join that here. You get to fly to Boston, take pictures and meet the band if you win.

In the band section, the tour dates and chart history were updated.

The media section got about 7 new videos. The last 5 from The Complex were added, and the 2 videos from MTV2 All that Rocks were as well. Thanks to Caleb for those. I’m sure most of you will notice that MTV dubbed the CD version of the chorus over the Fully Alive performance. Not sure what compelled them to do it. I guess MTV just sucks like that sometimes.

In the gallery, I added some beautiful new photoshoot shots taken by James Minchin. All of the new ones are in high quality. A few more photos from the Cornerstone Festival were also added thanks to Sarah.

I’ve been fiddling around with a new layout the past few hours. I’m trying to do better than the ones I’ve already made, but I’m failing miserably, so it might be a few days before I come up with something. Oh zee tortured world of graphic design.
