Platinum-selling recording group FLYLEAF will embark on a North American tour with rock bands Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace, kicking off January 15th in Peoria, IL.  FLYLEAF is touring in support of their latest album, Memento Mori, which was released November 10th on  A&M/Octone records.

The video for Memento Mori‘s first single- the urgent, impassioned “Again,”- has just entered the Elite 8 on MTVU and Fuse.   While at radio,”Again” is climbing the Active and Modern Rock radio charts and has been in the Top 15 since it’s release.  Memento Mori debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200.

FLYLEAF celebrated the release of Memento Mori with a performance on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on October 28th and a headlining US tour of intimate venues across the country this fall.

MEMENTO MORI is the follow-up to the Texas five-piece’s 2005 self-titled debut.  On this newest offering, the band once again worked with producer Howard Benson, who worked with FLYLEAF on their platinum-selling debut is known for his previous endeavors with My Chemical Romance and The All-American Rejects.  The resulting record is a compelling blend of bold guitars and soaring melodies, anchored by lead signer Lacey’s honest, emotional lyrics and fervent vocals.  USA Today says; “The release is full of potent imagery that transcends clichés” and Alternative Press says; “Momento Mori is a good album, with the awesome “Set Apart This Dream,” and “Again” shining with their anthemic choruses and deft use of pop melody.”

FLYLEAF is Lacey (lead vocals,) Sameer Bhattacharya (guitar,) Jared Hartman (guitar,) Pat Seals (bass) and James Culpepper (drums.)

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
