According to The Pulse of Radio, FLYLEAF will hit the studio no later than January 2009 to begin work on the follow-up to its 2005 self-titled debut, which went platinum after selling more than one million copies. Much of that was due to the band's relentless touring schedule, which kept them on the road for over two years and also took a heavy toll on singer Lacey Mosley's voice. The vocalist told us that having a long break before getting back to work was just what the doctor ordered: "I think this time off has been so needed and I think that the most important thing for you to do when your voice is so worn out like that is just stop singing for a while. For me it was like really relieving to get a lot of time to just rest and not have to sing every night the way that we do, and it's been good. And my voice is great, a hundred percent better."FLYLEAF's more than two years of touring and promotion for its debut CD included stints with KORN and the Family Values Tour, as well as two rock radio singles, "I'm So Sick" and "Fully Alive". The band is currently writing songs for the new album, which Mosley said were influenced by KORN and SHINEDOWN. FLYLEAF will play a radio festival in Orlando, Florida on December 14 and may also appear at a few more holiday shows before the end of the year.
