So I'm just going to be honest with this. Some of it may sound a little harsh, or maybe not, idk. Just gonna be honest.
First of all, I just want to point out the fact that I've never seen Flyleaf live. I only started getting into them about 2-3 years ago, but was never a true fanatic until about a year ago. I have been following the band ever since then, and the day they announced the release date for New Horizons (the album, not the single, though that was exciting too), I was of course stoked about the album, but even more so, I was stoked about the fact that they'd be touring again soon, and I'd finally get to see them live.
However, that excitement faded on the day they announced Lacey's departure from the band. It broke me. I was just thinking to myself, so much for seeing them live, and hearing Lacey's unique voice and screams in person, and hearing her amazing speeches that she always gives. And the possibility of meeting the whole band. All of those hopes went down the drain.
