In continued support of their highly successful album Memento Mori, platinum-selling rock quintet FLYLEAF will hit the road for the UNITE & FIGHT tour, set to kick off May 4th in Albuquerque, NM. The Texas rock group will bring their undeniably uplifting live show to audiences in every corner of the country throughout the headlining run. They will be supported by alternative mainstays 10 Years and progressive rockers Fair to Midland.

Flyleaf's lead singer Lacey shed some light on the name of the tour, and the message it carries for the band: "The charge "Unite and Fight!" is a lyric from the opening song "Beautiful Bride" on our latest record, Memento Mori. It is time to fight for unity because so many divisions are wreaking havoc on our broken hearts. Whether it's in relationships between family, friends or the unknown passerby, peace can sometimes be a battle that needs to be fought. "

Since the release of their acclaimed sophomore offering Memento Mori (A&M/Octone) in October, the band has been touring relentlessly and showing no signs of slowing down. In addition to standout cuts from the latest offering - "Again" and current single "Missing" - audiences on the upcoming tour will be treated to live favorites such as "Fully Alive," "All Around Me" and the band's breakout single "I'm So Sick."

Flyleaf will also share their unforgettable live show with their international fans at this year's Download Festival at Castle Donnington in the UK. On June 12th, Flyleaf will share the prestigious main stage with legendary acts including Rage Against the Machine, Deftones, Megadeth and many others. Their international travels will also see Flyleaf perform at the Muz TV awards on July 11th in Moscow-a major honor that puts the band in the company of previous performers Katy Perry, Sum 41, 30 Seconds to Mars and Christina Aguilera.

After an enthusiastic voting effort from their fans, Flyleaf's uplifting and moving video for "Missing" won MTV's recent AMtv contest. Additionally, the video has been added to rotation on both MTV2 and mtvU. The epic video takes the form of a modern-day fairy tale to tell a story of hope and strength. The video for "Missing" was inspired by letters from Flyleaf's own fans, who shared their stories of how the band's music helped them to conquer their most personal struggles and discover happiness and peace.
