Flyleaf release video for “Beautiful Bride”

Flyleaf have just released a video for the song “Beautiful Bride” which comes off their new album, Memento Mori, which is in-stores now.

A focused fire burns bright at the heart of Flyleaf‘s second full-length album. The platinum-selling Texas quintet’s latest offering is a collection of poignant, passionate and pensive hard rock songs. From the kinetic first single, “Again,” to the touching album closer, “Arise,” guitarists Sameer Bhattacharya and Jared Hartman trade orchestral riffs that seesaw from soaring to searing. Drummer James Culpepper smoothly propels every groove forward, while Pat Seals‘ bass anchors unforgettable hooks. Gliding across this majestic melodic backdrop, Lacey’s vocals build into beauty from pain. Her voice reaches transcendent heights on songs like “Set Apart This Dream” and “Missing.” Flyleaf‘s flame keeps rising…

The band now release their second video for “Beautiful Bride” directed by Don Tyler.  Like the song the video is a riveting rock track centered around domestic instability told through their Memento Mori characters.

Lacey describes the meaning behind “Beauftiful Bride”, “I believe that God made Humanity as a bride for himself and I think that the bride is most beautiful when she’s unified.”

The band are currently on a tour of North America through December.

The album features the single “Again” and was produced by Howard Benson (Voivod, Pretty Boy Floyd).

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
