Welcome to FlyleafOnline.com, the longest running and largest fansite on the net for the band
We aim to bring you the latest in news, tour dates, media, lyrics, info...
pretty much everything. And we do it often. So if you think you’ve seen
everything Flyleaf? Think again. We’ve probably posted something new by the time
you refresh the 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!
I added some acoustic videos to the pro-shot live video page including the Buzznet videos Lacey and Pat did, the Pentagon videos the whole band did, and the recent 103.9 acoustics that Lacey and Jared did.
In addition to that, I added a page for Laura’s wallpapers. She’s super talented at making desktops, so go check those out.
Last but not least, I added the singles from Memento Mori and Broken Pieces to the radio. Enjoy!
Tomorrow marks the first date of the upcoming tour. So if you attend any dates and have videos/pictures to share, send ‘em in! You’ll get full credit for whatever you share. :)
In addition to the bunches of pictures, I added some Memento Mori era acoustic tracks to the radio including Again, Arise, Chasm, & Missing. Those are also available for download here for anybody who wants them! Enjoy guys. :]
“When we were recording the song “Set Apart This Dream” for our new cd, “Memento Mori,” I was thinking about the innocence that is so easily and often stolen from so many kids. Today, there are 2 million children around the world who are victims of sex slavery. We named this tour Unite and Fight because sometimes we have to fight violence with peace and that takes unity. We have to fight thieves who steal children and sell them with generosity. This also takes unity. It’s our way of bringing a bit of attention to a grave matter. All of us who are in a safer place have the ability to help lift some of the burden of such a heavy and disgusting injustice. If you text UNITE to 20222, $10 will be added to your cell phone bill and a donation will be made to World Vision’s effort to rescue the victims of sex slavery.”
I’m pretty sure most of you already have Memento Mori, but here is the link to follow to download “Set Apart This Dream.” Makes me have so much more appreciation for the song and the band. I think it’s a wonderful cause. Please donate if you can!
Also! Big congratulations to the winners of the Memento Mori album cover contest! Dirick and Ricardo both had awesome entries, and they’re going to get some cool prizes in the mail pretty soon. :D All of the entries will be added to a special page of FlyleafOnline.com very soon.
If I’m not mistaken, this is the very first time Arise has surfaced on the internet in its entirety. What do you guys think? I know it’s hard to imagine what the song will be like in full studio form after seeing the acoustic version, but it’s really so beautiful. Anyone who went to a listening party too can agree with that, I’m sure. I love the acoustic version too. Anyway, let everyone know what you think in the comments!
More news, videos, pictures, etc to come soon! I’ll probably be working on the site all day, so hopefully I’ll have more tonight. :D
We just got back from seeing Flyleaf at Soulfest, which was pretty great. It was our first time seeing them at a Christian Festival. Lacey had a lot of great stories that she told during the show about Fully Alive, Believe in Dreams, and their cover of You Are My Joy. Instead of singing I Love You, Lord, they opened with Oh Lord, To You. You can watch that here.
As far as site updates go, the chart history page has been updated. In addition to that, I added the Denver show to the live audio page, and a couple clips of Lacey on Open House on the radio audio page thanks to Noel.
About 3 new wallpapers were uploaded thanks to Elise and Shane. You can view those here. A few new pieces of fanart were also uploaded thanks to Wesley.
I have lots and lots of updates tonight, starting with the chart history page. Breathe Today has moved up a few spots to #36 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. In addition to that, the tour page has been updated with new dates. Flyleaf will be playing a few Christian festivals this summer including Creation and Sonshine. I added a show count to each year, and a total one to the main tour page as well. After tallying them all up, the band has played over 550 shows since 2002 that I’ve logged in the tour section. I’m sure there’s more that I don’t have, but still. That’s crazy.
In the media section, I’ve added a few new interviews with radio stations that the band has done. We also have a new wallpaper thanks to Marley. As promised, the entire Columbia show has been posted. A big thanks to Spree for shooting that, and uploading it. Also, a new interview with James for Vic Firth has been uploaded.
The fans section has been updated with a brand new tattoo thanks to Jenn. A few new pieces of fan art have also been added thanks to Mooncownow, Nichola and Hope.
I’m glad everyone likes the new look of the site. :D Thanks for the comments guys. You all are pretty awesome.
We’ve got a few updates tonight. First off, the chart history page has been updated with some new stuff. In addition to that, the photoshop brushes have been updated with Flyleaf’s new logos and a new image pack to go with the brushes.
The radio has been updated with live versions Broken Wings and Penholder from a 2004 show at Antone’s. The mp3’s have been available on the site for years, but never on the radio. If you haven’t heard them, you should take a listen. Those are two of the band’s most amazing songs in my opinion.
Lots of video updates tonight. I’ve finally learned how to edit videos, so yay for that. First, we have the official 4 acoustic teasers from the CD/DVD. We also have most of the Edgefest 2007 show which is pro-shot. The sound isn’t too awesome, but it’s pretty good overall. 3 Interviews from 2006 have been added. One of them is basically the SRE Recordings EPK, but with a bunch more footage. We’re working on loads more video [including what might be the oldest recorded Flyleaf show and a 4 song pro-shot acoustic set], so I’m sure there’ll be a ton more by the time I update again.
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.
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.
The acoustic Fully Alive, the Christmas Song and Justice and Mercy have been added to the radio. Whoever bought the EP while it was on sale at the shows, you rock. To everyone who didn’t get a chance to, I hope you enjoy listening.
Over 600 new photos were added to the gallery yesterday. Yes, over 600. I hope you enjoy those too. :D
Again, a big, huge thanks to Revenant Media for a lot of these pictures.
Looks like the Holiday EP for charity is happening. The shipment got mixed up with some Barry Manilow because J Records is awesome. The CDs ended up making it to the band a little late. So if you went to the first few dates of the MAAW tour, you probably missed out on being able to purchase it. I believe the tracklisting is as follows:
1 – Fully Alive (Acoustic)
2 – Much Like Falling
3 – Justice and Mercy
4 – Lacey’s Christmas Song
So finally, after many questions and much anticipation, those songs are being released. I encourage you all to buy the EP’s at your shows as they’re for charity, and include rarities. Only 1,000 EPs are being made, so don’t hesitate. I’ll see if I can pick up some to give away as contest prizes in the future for everyone who might miss out on this tour.
As far as site updates go, the fanart page got a new drawing added to it. Michelle is the artist of that one, so thanks to her for sending it.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone that celebrates! :D
So… Brittany’s off in dreamland because she works like a slave these days, which means I’ll be bringing you folks the update tonight. To start off with, we’ve got three new videos from the Six Flags performance up on the video page, so check those out. Thanks again to Francine for sharing that show; I start to feel like something’s missing if I go too long without working on a Flyleaf live show, ha.
An incredible acoustic version of Supernatural was released on Rhapsody a couple days ago, but as of press time here, it didn’t seem to be available any longer. Justin is our resident Rhapsody person so if it ends up being available after all, we can point our collective blame fingers at him =). In any case, it’s worth keeping an eye out for.
On a different note, the staff page was updated the other day with a couple things about yours truly. I’m probably not as exciting (or as pretty…) as Brittany, but hey, there’s something up there if anyone ever happened to wonder.
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.
For everyone that has been wondering, the Jimmy Kimmel appearance has been rescheduled to July 10th. Also, Jared and Sameer are featured in a write up in Guitar World. According to Kat Hartmann, the whole thing is completely fabricated and the guys didn’t say anything that the article quotes them as saying. I might pick it up and scan it just to see what it says, but I can’t promise anything.
I was looking around the net recently, and I found out that this MTV2 All That Rocks appears to be an awards show. So I encourage everyone to vote for Flyleaf to win. You can vote more than once, so get to it. According to this article, they’re supposed to be making an appearance on the show. No idea when its being taped, but its airing July 30th.
The audio page was updated with the Edgefest show they played in Dallas thanks to Tracie. An interview the band did with Rhapsody was also added. A few more video clips from Edgefest were uploaded thanks to David. A ten minute long video with Lacey behind the camera is available on the video page for download. She basically goes around asking the band members questions. For anyone who hasn’t met them yet, you can see what they’re like off stage and out of an interview setting.
On the audio page, a new acoustic version of I’m So Sick was added. A new photoshop brush page was put up as well. I added a set that includes logos and various pieces of the album art. If anyone has any other brushes they’d like to see, feel free to ask and I’ll see what I can do. One new signature was added thanks to Sleepwalker, and the rest of the Stubb’s BBQ videos were too.
