Yesterday (9/16), FLYLEAF—the five-piece, multi-platinum alternative rock band—released their highly anticipated fourth studio album BETWEEN THE STARS, via Loud & Proud Records, and it's earning early accolades.
Yahoo Music's Dave DiMartino hails the band's "hard-driving rock, capably sung by May, expertly produced by Don Gilmore…" (9/16/14), while Revolver magazine's Allison Stewart raves, "…Between the Stars is tight and melodic and unrelentingly hook-driven, poppy enough in places to recall Paramore or even (on the great new single 'Set Me on Fire') a more ferocious No Doubt." (October 2014)
FLYLEAF recorded BETWEEN THE STARS' 12 songs--which are rooted in powerful vocal melodies, driving bass and drums along with bold guitar work that create a heavy, hypnotic soundscape throughout--in Los Angeles with producer Don Gilmore (Pearl Jam, Linkin Park, Bullet For My Valentine, Avril Lavigne). BETWEEN THE STARS is available for purchase on iTunes HERE and Amazon HERE.
FLYLEAF—KRISTEN MAY (vocals), SAMEER BHATTACHARYA (guitars), JARED HARTMANN (guitars), PAT SEALS (bass), JAMES CULPEPPER (drums)—are gearing up for their national fall tour launching Thursday, October 2 in Waco, TX. The trek, with opening acts Ryan White and Lullwater, will hit the Gramercy Theater in New York City on Thursday, October 16 and the House of Blues in Los Angeles on Tuesday, November 4 before wrapping Friday, November 7 in San Diego, CA. Tickets are on-sale now. For the full tour itinerary and more information including where to purchase tickets, visit: www.flyleafmusic.com/tour.
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque" at http://www.tanamor.com/p/anonymous.html.
