Flyleaf to Release Fourth Studio Album This Fall After Signing Label Deal


Flyleaf are getting a fresh start with their fourth studio album, having just announced they’ve signed to Loud & Proud Records to release the effort. The band underwent a major change after issuing their 2012 disc, ‘New Horizons,’ as longtime vocalist Lacey Sturm left the group with Kristen May taking over as frontwoman.

May had the chance to prove herself right out of the gate, as the transition took place pretty much coinciding with the release of the ‘New Horizons’ album. Also aiding in the transition was the band issuing a 2013 EP titled ‘Who We Are’ that allowed fans to get used to May as the band’s new vocalist.

Now the group is back in the studio planning to release their fourth full-length effort in September with Loud & Proud’s backing. Guitarist Sameer Bhatacharya says, “Flyleaf is privileged and thankful to be joining forces with Loud & Proud. There is something very special in this new Flyleaf album that resonates in our hearts. We’re excited for the new release and our upcoming tours this fall.”

May added, “I’m so happy to be partners with Loud & Proud. This will be a good team for us. Loud & Proud gives us the freedom creatively to grow and stay true to who we are while having the support of an inspired team. We can’t wait for the journey ahead.”

Flyleaf got a head start on the new record back in January when they started a Pledge Music campaign for the upcoming disc and by Feb. 2 the album was fully funded. The group has begun working on the disc with producer Don Gilmore and a number of song titles have already been revealed.

Tracks include ‘Set Me on Fire,’ ‘Magnetic,’ ‘City Kids,’ ‘Marionette,’ ‘Thread’ and ‘Well of Lies.’ Fans can check out a live performance of ‘City Kids’ in the concert video below. Those wishing to pre-order the new album and find VIP packages for the group’s fall tour may do so by visiting the PledgeMusic site. Look for the band to release their next single in July with dates for the fall tour being revealed soon.
