    • 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 have set out on New Horizons in more ways than one.

    Not only have they dropped their best album yet--of the same name--but they're also beginning a new chapter with singer Kristen May.

    In this exclusive video interview, Flyleaf sat down to talk to ARTISTdirect.com about the new album, illuminating us about the song "Green Heart" (it's about the ill-advised love of and pursuit of money) and more.

    We nabbed time with guitarist Sameer Bhattacharya, who was forthright and candid.

    The guitarist feels that new singer Kristen May makes the songs her own. She involves herself in the lyrics and explores them, and puts her stamp on them.

    He also talks about Flyleaf's upcoming tour with Drowning Pool, where Texans unite and offers details about the tour's VIP package.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to scheduling, the acoustic set mentioned in the video has now been changed to a "Soundcheck Party". We wanted to let everyone know
