(PCM) Rockers Flyleaf have just released their new album “New Horizons” and sadly it will be the band’s last to feature singer Lacey Strum. The announcement of Lacey’s departure came last week, along with news that former Vedera vocalist Kristen May will be stepping in for future tour dates in support of New Horizons. “It took everyone on our team to make the beauty in Flyleaf possible,” said Lacey in a statement. “I am honored to have met so many wonderful people who love Flyleaf music all over the world.”
“New Horizons” could not be a more appropriate title for the band’s latest release, as the delightfully catchy, yet still hard rocking tracks are certain to put Flyleaf back on the map and Strum has decided to make her exit on an incredibly high note. Flyleaf has mastered the art of balance between melodic and heavy and the tracks on “New Horizons” feature some of the most raw emotions both sonically and lyrically than with any of the band’s previous albums. Tracks such as “Green Heart” and “Call You Out” stand out as some of the album’s heavier tracks, while tracks such as “Broken Wings” and “Saving Grace” slow things down a bit with their emotionally charged lyrics and haunting melodies.
With this album Flyleaf has shown that their are plenty of ‘new horizons’ within their reach and have created one of their most solid albums to date!
“Call You Out,” the second single from the album has been recently released (following up the title track, which was released this summer) and “New Horizons’ is currently streaming in its entirety exclusively on Buzznet.com.
