Flyleaf Cancel Shows Due To Vocal Problems

NEWS SOURCE: Flyleaf, a report
May 20, 2008

Flyleaf Earlier today, Flyleaf announced the cancellation of several shows due to lead vocalist Lacey Mosley once again experiencing vocal problems. Only hours after the cancellation news, Lacey posted a personal apology to fans, along with the glimmer of hope of new music to (finally!) come from the band in the months ahead...

"I'm very sorry about having to cancel the last 5 shows of our tour with Seether. I'm trying to quit crying when I think about all the people I have let down, but I pray that there will be grace and understanding to help me through this time. After 2 weeks of having no voice between shows, my voice finally went out during the second song of our set we played at Nokia Theatre in Times Square. We cut 6 songs and I struggled to finish the set with the heavier songs that drowned out my singing anyway. Pat even came in for the screams and falsettos… haha.. It was a shame that Rich had his microphone turned off.. I heard people say that everything sounded great and I was thankful that no one seemed to notice how bad I was struggling. The next day we were scheduled to play in Pittsburgh, and I also had an appointment to see the vocal doctor there that morning. After seeing the damage I had done to my vocal cords already and worrying about seriously injuring myself by continuing the tour we decided to cancel. Pittsburgh was particularly difficult to cancel because it was a special show with our friends and family and we were getting to play with one of my favorite new bands, Kairos. Its interesting that the last time we had to cancel a tour cause my voice went out it was during a headlining run with Resident Hero and Fair To Midland and it also ended in Pittsburgh.

With all this sad news we are actually very happy to be home to rest and write and work on a new record. The guys and I have been writing individually and after I get completely well we will get together and have a brand new Flyleaf album for you to enjoy. I hope you are just as excited as we are because the songs that we have, even at this point, are my favorite ones we've written. I love you all so much, and thank you so much for being so amazing to us. We will do our best to take better care of ourselves next time so that we wont have to cancel any more shows.
