Lead singer Lacey Sturm leaves Texas rockers Flyleaf

MAINSTREAM hitmakers Flyleaf have announced the departure of long time singer Lacey Sturm. The band's final album with Lacey, 'New Horizons', has just been released by A&M/Octone Records. Kristen May formerly of the band Vedera will be stepping in as the band's lead singer for future tour dates in support of 'New Horizons'. Said Lacey about her departure, "I have been beyond blessed to be in Flyleaf for the past 10 years, touring with four amazing men and the Flyleaf crew, whom I love like my flesh and blood family. They have all given so much. It took everyone on our team to make the beauty in Flyleaf possible. I am honoured to have met so many wonderful people who love Flyleaf music all over the world. Your incredible stories continue to inspire me. I am very thankful to have recently become a mom to one of the greatest blessings of my life, my son Jack. You may have also heard that we recently lost our brilliant sound engineer, Rich Caldwell, in a devastating car accident. Now, more than ever, I understand the phrase Memento Mori. I understand that, for me, living life to the fullest in this season means to step down as the lead singer for Flyleaf. I wish the best to Jared, Pat, Sameer and James." CR
