Lacey Sturm has stepped down as singer of Flyleaf. Bassist Pat Seals announced that Vedera singer Kristen May will fill in on upcoming tour dates to promote Flyleaf's upcoming album, New Horizons.
Pat said in a statement on the band's website, "As Flyleaf begins this new cycle to introduce our third record New Horizons, we feel our fans should know that Lacey has stepped down as lead vocalist of the band."
Lacey writes, "I have been beyond blessed to be in Flyleaf for the past ten years... It took everyone on our team to make the beauty in Flyleaf possible... I am very thankful to have recently become a mom to one of the greatest blessings of my life, my son Jack. You may have also heard that we recently lost our brilliant sound engineer, Rich Caldwell, in a devastating car accident. Now, more than ever, I understand the phrase Memento Mori. I understand that, for me, living life to the fullest in this season means to step down as the lead singer for Flyleaf. I wish the best to Jared, Pat, Sameer and James and I know that as I continue to pursue the highest heights of what I am created for, it will free them all to pursue that for themselves too."
