FLYLEAF Singer Talks New Material, Upcoming Presidential Elections

Possum of Altitude caught up with Lacey Mosley (vocals) and Jared Hartmann (guitar) of FLYLEAF backstage on September 28, 2008 at Austin City Limits where the band debuted three new songs — "Justice and Mercy", "Again" and "Have We Lost". Lacey spoke about the new material and how the band plans on working with producer Howard Benson again. However, according to the singer, FLYLEAF plans to exert more control during the recording process this time around, stating, "There were things we didn't appreciate on the last record that won't be an issue this time around." Regarding the upcoming presidential elections, Lacey says, "I really have a strong anti-abortion stance. I don't think I can vote for a president that's for abortion. So that makes a big difference about where I'm gonna vote."

FLYLEAF earlier in the year landed a platinum album award for sales of one million copies of the band's self-titled 2005 debut album. The award capped more than two years of touring and promotion that included stints with KORN and the Family Values Tour, as well as two rock radio singles, "I'm So Sick" and "Fully Alive".
