Flyleaf Talk ‘Between the Stars’ Lyrical Themes, ‘Set Me on Fire’ + ‘Marionette’
The transition is complete. Flyleaf have moved on to Kristen May as their lead vocalist, releasing their first full album with her, Between the Stars, last fall. The members of Flyleaf recently visited the Loudwire studio to discuss the album, and in the video above, we dig into the creation of the disc.
The band discuss some of the lyrical themes behind the album, with May stating in the clip above, "I think there's a lot of hope in this album and I think there's a lot of honest experiences. Maybe it was a relationship that wasn't working out, maybe it's someone who turned their back on you, maybe it's knowing someone who is struggling with addiction, it's just a variety of themes that are taking you on this life's journey that we all have."
Flyleaf also delve into the the formation of "Set Me on Fire" and "Marionette," two of the more intriguing tracks on Between the Stars. In the chat, you'll find that "Set Me on Fire" was inspired by the popular book franchise Divergent, which was recently translated into film. Kristen May also speaks about "Marionette," which partially focuses on the criticism May faced after taking the place of former Flyleaf vocalist Lacey Sturm. Take a look at the clip above and get all the scoop straight from the band.
Flyleaf's Between the Stars is currently available via Amazon and iTunes. Having recently finished a headlining run on the annual SnoCore tour, the band is catching a breather before resuming North American touring on April 8 in Sauget, Ill. Dates can be found here.
