Making history as the first female solo artist to top the Hard Rock Albums chart with her acclaimed “Life Screams” (2016), Lacey Sturm returns today (Friday, February 12) with her second single, ‘State Of Me’, from her highly anticipated sophomore project, due this summer. The platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated former frontwoman of Flyleaf wrote the new song with Skillet‘s John and Korey Cooper. The single is available now at digital and streaming outlets everywhere from Followspot Records / The Fuel Music.

Marking a continued return to Lacey‘s hard-rock roots, ‘State Of Me‘ extends an aggressive, musically violent lifeline to herself, and to those hanging over the precipice; those drowning under a crushing weight.

“Choosing life is violent in that we reject every subtle form of suicide, every eternal death choice that would try to disorient, distract and seduce us away,” says Lacey, who lost someone close to her in this season and has herself narrowly escaped suicide twice in her life. “Eternal life starts in our soul. So look at the state of it. And if you see eternal death, be violent against it, cut off every temporary thing that would bring that into your heart and reach out and cling to eternal life, even if it costs you this temporary one.”

Former Flyleaf singer Lacey Sturm will release her third book on May 22. Titled “The Return: Reflections On Loving God Back” is intended to help people “see each day as a gift from God, find balance in their busy lives and discover the joy of giving God’s gifts back to him by using them to bring him glory.”

Speaking about why she wrote the book, Lacey said in a video message (see below): “When I first started writing books, somebody asked me, ‘What would you say if you only had one thing to say to the world. And the first thing I wanted to say I spoke about in my first book, [2014’s] ‘The Reason’, and it was about my encounter with God and finding life worth living. And the second thing I wanted to say was about romance and all of the poor choices I made and how I ended up coming into such a redemptive love story, and I wrote about that in [2016’s] ‘The Mystery’, my second book. And then the third thing I wanted to say I write about in ‘The Return’, and it just talks about bringing your heart back to God and your life to God in response to his love for us, and what that looks like when you follow your dreams, when you steward your inspiration and make the most with what’s right in front of you. It’s about answering your calling, it’s about pursuing your purpose and just loving him back with each day that we’re given. He’s given us so much, and what are we gonna give him in return? So that’s why I wrote ‘The Return’, and that’s kind of what it’s about.” Continue reading »

lacey_sturm_2016_898In a brand new interview with RockRevolt Magazine, ex-Flyleaf frontwoman Lacey Sturm was asked if there is chance that she could reunite with her former bandmates now that they have parted ways with their singer of the past four years, Kristen May. She responded (hear audio below): “Well, you know, I feel like I’m the kind of person that I think so much happened that I never in a million years thought would happen, so I’ve learned to quit saying ‘never.’ But at the same time, I’m a really present person.”

She continued: “I don’t have any plans for that, but then again, you never know. I don’t know… [Laughs] They haven’t called me. And I don’t have any plans [to go back].”

Two years ago, Sturm opened up about some of the reasons why she quit Flyleaf in the fall of 2012, shortly before the release of its third album, “New Horizons”. She said that several events, including getting married, having a baby and enduring the death of the band’s sound engineer Rich Caldwell changed her priorities. Continue reading »
