Flyleaf Vocalist Leaves Band
Bassist Pat Seals said, “As Flyleaf begins this new cycle to introduce our third record New Horizons, we feel our fans should know that Lacey has stepped down as lead vocalist of the band.”
Sturm wrote in her statement, “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 and I know that as I continue to pursue the highest heights of what I am created for, it will free them all to pursue that for themselves, too.”
The band rose to fame in 2006 with singles such as “I’m So Sick” and “Fully Alive,” for which Sturm provided vocals, as she did for the 10 years with the band.
The band has selected Kristen May formerly of Vedera to assume vocal duties for future tour dates.
New Horizons will be released on October 30.
