Fans can submit photos NOW for Unite & Fight Photo Contest!

 FLYLEAF, the platinum-selling rock quintet whose sophomore album Memento Mori has been heating up the charts, are preparing to kick-off the second leg of their UNITE & FIGHT headlining tour. The tour kicks off in Philadelphia on September 10th and wraps on October 24th in Farmington, NM.  

 In addition to lighting up the stage with their invigorating and inspiring live sets, the band is embarking on the UNITE & FIGHT tour to give back in an important way by launching a text campaign to support World Vision’s fight against human trafficking of children. When fans text UNITE to 20222, $10 will be added to their cell phone bill and a donation will be made to World Vision’s effort to rescue the children who are victims of human trafficking. Story of the Year will support on all dates.  For more information, visit:

 In addition to the text campaign, FLYLEAF is urging fans to show their support with a contest where fans can submit photos of groups holding hands in solidarity in a human chain, as demonstrated by FLYLEAF (above). Fans can submit their photos at, and the person who submits the longest chain in each tour market will receive tickets and a special meet and greet with the band at the show. The person who submits the largest chain over the course of the tour will receive a guitar signed by the band.

 FLYLEAF fans can catch Lacey contributing her signature vocals to two new tracks – “Broken Pieces” from Apocalyptica’s newly released album, as well as the new single “Courage” from Orianthi, out today.

 Head to FLYLEAF’s website to download the music video for new single “Missing” here:

 Memento Mori, released late last year via A&M/Octone, debuted at #8 on the Billboard chart and reached #1 on the Alternative Album chart and Hard Rock Album chart. Their self-titled debut, released in 2005, has gone platinum.

Praise for FLYLEAF:

Memento Mori is precise, muscular and alluring…Ms. Mosley sounds more certain then ever, her voice shooting up octaves the more enthralled she becomes.” – The New York Times

 “Live, Flyleaf teeter between the explosive elegance of early Deftones and Alice In Chains’ heartfelt and heavy exploration of the human condition—however, they’ve also got hard rock’s best front woman at the helm…Hopeful and heavy, the Unite and Fight Tour is everything that a hard rock jaunt should be.” – ArtistDirect

 Flyleaf are – as this, their second record proves, a super-tight metal band capable of writing a more than decent tune. Frontwoman Lacey Mosely has a voice that puts Amy Lee to shame and guitarists Jared Hartmann and Sameer Bhattacharya have far more up their sleeves than standard metal power chords.” – Alternative Press

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
