    • 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

Bassist Pat Seals echoed his excitement, "I can't wait for these new songs to happen live for both longtime and new fans."

    Drowning Pool guitarist C.J. Pierce adds, "We're excited as hell to get back out on the road and hang with our fellow Texas rockers Flyleaf. We've done some radio shows together in the past but this will be our first real run together. I know Flyleaf has great new line up and some amazing new tunes.
