Flyleaf – the five-piece, multi-platinum alternative, hard rock band—have premiered “Set Me On Fire” today, Tuesday, July 1,on Revolvermag.com. The explosive track marks the first single off the group’s fourth studio album BETWEEN THE STARS which is now set for release September 16 on Loud & Proud Records. “Set Me On Fire” hits rock and alternative radio formats July 7.
“We’re excited to release our first single, ‘Set Me on Fire’ today and we can’t wait for people to hear it,” explains FLYLEAF lead vocalist KRISTEN MAY. “It’s about the passion we feel when we first fall in love and our emotions are running high, along with our thirst for this great life and all it has to offer. There is so much beauty, excitement and hope in this world and when we collide with one another and fall in love, magic happens. I hope everyone turns this song up to eleven, and sings at the top of their lungs.”
Last week, the group–KRISTEN MAY (vocals), SAMEER BHATACHARYA (guitars), JARED HARTMANN (guitars), PAT SEALS (bass), JAMES CULPEPPER (drums)–shot a video for the song with director Noel Maitland (Speechless, Kings of Summer) in an abandoned warehouse in downtown Los Angeles. See the pictures below, and expect the video to debut at the end of July.

FLYLEAF has consistently dominated the Active, Alternative and Mainstream rock charts throughout their career. They released the eponymous debut album, Flyleaf, in 2005 which went platinum and spawned the singles “I’m So Sick,” “Fully Alive,” and the smash “All Around Me,” which sold over one million digital downloads, was a Top 20 hit at Top 40 radio and won the BMI Pop Award. Their second album Memento Mori was released in late 2009 and debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard charts, featuring the singles “Again” and “Missing.” Their third album New Horizonswas released in late 2012. After months of touring the world with the new line-up addition of KRISTEN MAY on vocals, FLYLEAF released a new EP Who We Are in 2013 which featured the song “Something Better” with P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval on vocals. They’ve shared the stage with Korn, Deftones, Stone Sour, Evanescence and many more. Conscious of constantly giving back, they played special shows for American troops stationed in Afghanistan as well as Okinawa, Japan.
