Studio “Okay” - 16 Comments

While Flyleaf was in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Lacey was working on the vocals for a new version of their song Okay, which has never been recorded before. The song has been around for years and years as the opener to their song Tina live. If you’ve never heard the song before, below is the old version in its entirety. Mostly the band played only the first verse, but a while back they did a two verse version and we were lucky enough to get the video. Lacey’s mic cuts out at the end, but you get the idea. :)

I love Okay, so I’m really excited to see how it comes out in full song form.







New Music! - 17 Comments

The band is recording new music with Mark Lewis while they’re on the road! I don’t believe it’s for a new full-length album like people have been hoping on some of the forums I read, but I think we can hope at the very least for an EP later on this year. ;) So exciting!

I’m going to be going through all of our photos that we took at the shows this past week. So look for those later on tonight. It was cool meeting a lot of you guys at the shows. :D Thanks for saying hi.







New Radio Songs, Desktops and Videos! - 8 Comments

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!

Flyleaf struggles with ‘Christian rock’ tag - 8 Comments

Pat Seals sounds uncomfortable.

The friendly, soft-spoken bassist for the alt-metal act Flyleaf is supposed to be enjoying a few days off in his Texas home before joining his bandmates in Calgary for the Rock the River West tour this Saturday. Instead, he’s being forced to choose his words carefully after being asked about the strange world of Christian entertainment.

“I think there are a lot of business people out there who can see how to make money very easily,” says Seals. “As much as the Christian industry has helped us, as well as the secular industry, it smacks of ‘We can sell this product to a lot of people.’ I think that’s how it arose. I guess the U.S. — particularly in the Midwest and the South — is so predominantly Christian that there is a ton of people there.

“I don’t know,” Seals adds sheepishly. “I feel like I’m digging myself in a big hole here.”

“Our band’s message, in my opinion, is the message of Christ and how he’s affected our lives,” Seals says.

“It’s not a sales pitch. It’s that truth as filtered through our experiences. We try not to deny that life is difficult, or hard or ugly. We try to make an attempt to be honest about ourselves and not present it as just a product.”
