supporting their new album Between The Stars and will be stopping in Cambridge on Tuesday, October 14 at TT The Bears with opening acts Ryan White and Lullwater.

“I’m really looking forward to getting on the road starting in October,”
said Kristen.  “We have a batch of new songs we’ve poured our hearts and souls into and I can’t wait to play them live.  The music really takes on a new life when our fans are singing with us and experiencing these songs in the moment.  Also, I can’t wait to listen to Ryan White and Lullwater each night.  It’s going to be a magical tour.”

Kristen shared with Yahoo! that “We explored the idea of the attraction or magnetism you can feel with someone you love; how incredibly powerful that force of nature can be. Even if you’re apart, you still feel them as if they are right by your side. They can fill up the dark parts in you. They remind you why you’re living, make you happier than anyone else and inspire you with a glance. It’s pretty incredible when you realize the power we have to love and be loved as humans and how we can feel so drawn or attracted to that object of our affection. It’s a gift.”

BetweenSameer added, “The creation of Between The Stars was exhilarating and emotional. We delved uninhibited into the music and lyrics realizing the awesome empowerment and releasing the heavy burdens that lie hidden in deep corners of our hearts.”

Early Praise for Between The Stars

“Flyleaf enter a new stratosphere altogether with their majestic fourth full-length offering Between the Stars. It’s heavy at all the right moments, but the songwriting advances light years, yielding some of the band’s biggest anthems to date. Moreover, the instrumentation stands out as eloquently spacey and soaring, bringing a robust energy to each musical moment. Kristen May also delivers an undeniably powerful, passionate, and poetic performance throughout. Go Between The Stars with Flyleaf ~it’s precisely where hard rock should be heading.” ~ Rick Florino, Artist Direct, September 4, 2014

“…more than an alternative album, Between The Stars takes you on a sonic journey. One that tastefully fuses a heavy, hypnotic landscape with infectious pop melody.” ~ James Wood,, August 27, 2014

“It is quite apparent when listening to the new album that a lot of heart and soul went into its’ creation. Flyleaf truly let it all out with this album and out of the 12 songs that make up Between The Stars it was difficult to find one that wasn’t up to speed… songs such as ‘Thread,’ ‘City Kids,’ and the album’s closer ‘Home’ truly showcase May’s ability as a singer. Her vocals echo so much emotion that the listener can literally feel the music when listening…the band has the uncanny ability to create a hard and heavy album without losing a certain level of pop sensibility that is just astounding…on Between The Stars there is sure to be a track (or more) that connects emotionally with the listener and the band has done a phenomenal job with their latest effort.” ~ Kristyn Clarke,, September 4, 2014


Between The Stars is available for pre-order on iTunesHERE and Amazon HERE.
