Former Flyleaf singer Lacey Sturm announces solo album

Four years following her departure from Flyleaf, the vocalist and songwriter who delivered rock anthems like “Again,” All Around Me,” “I’m So Sick” and “Fully Alive” to the top of the retail and radio charts, Lacey Sturm, announces that her debut solo album, Life Screams, will independently release Feb. 12 on FOLLOWSPOT Records with The Fuel Music distribution. Writing alone, as well as with husband/guitarist Josh Sturm, Skillet’s Korey Cooper and Grammy Award winning writer and producer David Hodges, Lacey created a record that is the sonic successor to Flyleaf’s celebrated self-titled debut (which spent a staggering 133 weeks on Billboard’s Top 200). “In the beginning, Flyleaf really centered around my story and vision,” says the Platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated frontwoman of Flyleaf (through 2012). “This new project continues that narrative in a cohesive way.” The debut single from Life Screams, “Impossible,” gives voice to that new narrative as it screamed into the top five of the iTunes Rock Top Songs chart when it released. The single reached as high as No. 2 on the chart following SiriusXM Radio Octane’s premiere of the song Nov. 1. In rotation now at Octane and numerous stations across the country, Lacey will travel to New York City this week to perform an acoustic rendition of the single in Octane’s studio, as well as in the HardDrive Radio studio. While in New York, Lacey will further complete an interview and performance in Loudwire’s studio. (Performances and interview air dates are to be announced.) Approaching her latest creative phase with newfound perspective and appreciation, Life Screams grew organically out of a community of artists in Lacey’s hometown of Pittsburgh. Through this community, Lacey’s live band formed and have already performed for crowds in the tens of thousands. As her 2016 touring schedule begins to fill up, Lacey will be taking the new music from Life Screams and fan favorites from her Flyleaf repertoire to the “World\’s Loudest Month,” hitting ­such major rock festivals as Rock On The Range, Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion, Welcome To Rockville and Northern Invasion. She also performs at club dates, including a special album release show on Feb. 4 at West Hollywood’s famed Whisky A Go Go. After news of Lacey’s return to music was released last fall, word began to spread virally across the web with Loudwire, Blabbermouth, ABC Radio and Alternative Press coverage, the latter’s story receiving a remarkable 32,490 shares, one of the most shared stories on the site.
