Lead vocalist of the rock band Flyleaf, Lacey Sturm, is leaving the formation. The band and Lacey announced the news on their Facebook page.

Flyleaf, "We wanted our fans to hear it first, "New Horizons" will be the last album featuring Lacey."

Announcement from Flyleaf and Lacey:

"As Flyleaf begins this new cycle to introduce our third record New Horizons, we feel our fans should know that Lacey has stepped down as lead vocalist of the band. Her statement below expresses her reasons for leaving. In order to continue on with New Horizons, Sameer, Jared, James, and myself have selected Kristen May, formerly of Vedera, to assume lead vocal duties for future tour dates. We are excited for this new chapter in the history of Flyleaf, and hope that our fans will accompany us as we continue on this journey to bring hope and inspiration through our music. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years and we are looking forward to playing for you again soon." -Pat Seals

Lacey, "I am very thankful to have recently become a mom to one of the greatest blessings of my life, my son Jack. You may have also heard that we recently lost our brilliant sound engineer, Rich Caldwell, in a devastating car accident. Now, more than ever, I understand the phrase Memento Mori. I understand that, for me, living life to the fullest in this season means to step down as the lead singer for Flyleaf. Continue to read the announcement HERE.

The newest album from Flyleaf and the last one to feature Lacey titled New Horizons released October 30.
