LACEY STURM Doesn't Rule Out Return To FLYLEAF

In a brand new interview with RockRevolt Magazine, ex-FLYLEAF frontwoman Lacey Sturm was asked if there is chance that she could reunite with her former bandmates now that they have parted ways with their singer of the past four years, Kristen May. She responded (hear audio below): "Well, you know, I feel like I'm the kind of person that I think so much happened that I never in a million years thought would happen, so I've learned to quit saying 'never.' But at the same time, I'm a really present person."

She continued: "I don't have any plans for that, but then again, you never know. I don't know… [Laughs] They haven't called me. And I don't have any plans [to go back]."

Two years ago, Sturm opened up about some of the reasons why she quit FLYLEAF in the fall of 2012, shortly before the release of its third album, "New Horizons". She said that several events, including getting married, having a baby and enduring the death of the band's sound engineer Rich Caldwell changed her priorities.

Sturm explained: "The one that hit the hardest was the death of our sound engineer. We did one last show with FLYLEAF as a benefit for his wife Katy and their son Kirby. And it was really hard to do a show without him, and it was really hard to think it could be our last show. So I remember looking at my son after Rich had passed and just wondering to myself, if this was the last year I had with my son, how would I spend it?"

Sturm added: "It was really amazing to recognize this season changing in my life and the freedom that I was gonna be able to focus on my family. And I'm so thankful for that time. And although it was really hard, I'm thankful. And that's the reason I stepped down from FLYLEAF."

FLYLEAF recruited May as Sturm's replacement and released its fourth album, "Between The Stars", in September 2014.

Sturm's debut solo album, "Life Screams", was released on February 12 via Followspot Records with The Fuel Music distribution.
