“Again,” the lead single from A&M/Octone recording artist FLYLEAF’S latest album, Memento Mori, has climbed to #3* at Modern Rock radio, right behind Muse, who occupy the #1 and #2 spots. Memento Mori, the follow-up to FLYLEAF’s self-titled Platinum debut, recently entered The Billboard 200 at No. 8.

“Reaching #3* after 28 weeks, ‘Again’ has been Flyleaf’s biggest hit at Modern Rock radio to date,” said Ben Berkman, EVP/Head of Promotion at A&M/Octone Records. “It has also been one of their most enduring as well, reaching this position after a steady eight month build. Furthermore, the track navigated one of the most competitive fourth quarters in the last 10 years, outlasting records from over a dozen established Gold & Platinum artists. ‘Again’ is a bona fide hit!”

The band, which just wrapped up a trek with Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin, will launch a sold-out U.K. tour on March 22nd, which includes a show at London’s Islington Academy on April 1st. FLYLEAF will then return to the States for a series of festival appearances and a headlining tour that will kick off on May 4th. Fair to Midland and Ten Years will open on the tour. A ticket pre-sale will begin on Tuesday, March 16th, at 3 p.m. local time at http://tixx1.artistarena.com/flyleaf. A limited number of VIP packages will be available that include early entry to the show, a signed FLYLEAF poster and several other cool perks. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday and Saturday, March 19th and 20th; check your local box office for details. (See below for tour itinerary.)

FLYLEAF is Lacey (lead vocals), Sameer Bhattacharya (guitar), Jared Hartman (guitar), Pat Seals (bass) and James Culpepper (drums).Based in Belton, Texas, the quintet has been touring nearly non-stop since the September 2005 release of its self-titled debut album, which spent 133 weeks on The Billboard 200 and contained the hits “I’m So Sick,” “Fully Alive” and the RIAA Platinum smash “All Around Me.” Recorded with Howard Benson  (My Chemical Romance, The All-American Rejects), Memento Mori was hailed by The New York Times as “muscular and alluring” while Entertainment Weekly called it “galvanizing.” “Break Your Knees,” a track that appeared on the expanded edition of Memento Mori, was tapped for Healing 4 Haiti, a benefit compilation that was released last week on the iTunes Store.

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
