Flyleaf to release 'Memento Mori' album

A&M/OCTONE mainstream act Flyleaf have announced the 27th October release of their new album 'Memento Mori'. The first single from the project, "Again", was released in the US in August. The Belton, Texas-based quintet again teamed with producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach). The band's vocalist Lacey Mosley spoke of how many of the songs feature a lyrical theme that started out as a kind of urgent and hopeful personal message to Lacey's teenaged sister. "I feel like the new songs began as a kind of open letter to my little sister, saying, 'Please don't make the mistakes that I have made.' When I'm on stage and look out into the crowd, I see my sister in so many faces. With the title 'Memento Mori' we took that feeling a step further so that it now encompasses meaning for the rest of the band as well; essentially to make the most of the time we've all been given. 'Memento Mori' is universal. The album's title comes from the well known Latin phrase that, through the ages, has been uttered as a reminder of the mortality we all share." CR
