    • Flyleaf - Through the first verse of "In The Dark," Lacey softly stepped around the stage with what seemed like the shyness of a small child. That shyness soon erupted into a raw emotional energy that captivated the audience for the rest of the evening. There are some performers that just hop onstage, sing, dance, whatever, and hop back offstage. Lacey is definitely not one of them. She doesn't just sing songs, she feels them – and the audience could tell as they sang and swayed right along with her. But it wasn’t just her; each band member was able to connect with the audience. While Sameer and Jared grooved to their melodies, Pat furiously pounded the bass and jumped on speakers. James even pointed his sticks out toward the crowd while drumming. It was amazing to see a band with such an enormous presence play a venue with such an intimate setting.—Lilly Ryden

    FLYLEAF are set to hit the road again this fall on the second leg of their UNITE & FIGHT headline tour.

    After a massively successful jaunt this spring, the platinum-selling rock quintet will deliver their inspiring and invigorating on-stage uprising to crowds across the country. The first round of UNITE & FIGHT was so special to fans that FLYLEAF had to share it with everyone who missed it—in addition to those diehards returning for more.

    In continued support of their triumphant sophomore album, Memento Mori, FLYLEAF are going to put on an unforgettable show every night. Crowds have the chance to experience the Texas band's latest hit single from Memento Mori, "Missing" as well as "Again" and other live favorites like "I'm So Sick" and "All Around Me." Alternative mainstays Story of the Year will provide support for FLYLEAF on the entire run, rounding out a formidable night of rock 'n' roll.

    UNITE & FIGHT comes hot on the heels of FLYLEAF's incredible main stage set at the UK's Download Festival alongside Rage Against the Machine and numerous U.S. and overseas festival appearances. For FLYLEAF, UNITE & FIGHT has a deeper purpose, and the band wants to give back in an important way.

    Grammy nominated vocalist Lacey comments, “When we were recording the song 'Set Apart This Dream' for our new CD, Memento Mori, I was thinking about the innocence that is so easily and often stolen from so many kids. Today, there are 2 million children around the world who are victims of sex slavery. We named this tour UNITE & FIGHT because sometimes we have to fight violence with peace and that takes unity. We have to fight thieves who steal children and sell them with generosity. This also takes unity. It's our way of bringing a bit of attention to a grave matter. All of us who are in a safer place have the ability to help lift some of the burden of such a heavy and disgusting injustice. If you text UNITE to 20222, $10 will be added to your cell phone bill and a donation will be made to World Vision's effort to rescue the victims of sex slavery."

    The first leg of the tour also received high praises from the press. Rick Florino of ARTISTdirect.com writes, "Live, Flyleaf teeter between the explosive elegance of early Deftones and Alice In Chains' heartfelt and heavy exploration of the human condition—however, they've also got hard rock's best front woman at the helm...Hopeful and heavy, the Unite and Fight Tour is everything that a hard rock jaunt should be."
